Old thread, but my thread.  :-)

I finally ordered a nice panel for this, so it should look cool when I get it.

This is the final step in the build process.

Great build, missed it the first time around...

Thanks!

I'm going to build another down the road, but I have a few projects ahead of this in line.

I'll post a pic of that panel when I get it installed.

Nice build Ricardus. I enjoyed reading through your documentation.   It is definitely a learning experience and using lundahl input transformers are a snare no expense but well worth it.     Have you done some more recording now?    What have you used it on so far.

I've used this on vox, acoustic and electric guitars, and bass so far. Sounds great.

 I've even brought it to live sound gigs just for fun when I was working with a singer songwriter person who only needed 2 inputs (voice and guitar) and it sounds great there too.

This is the final design for the panel. I came to the color choice (gold) over time.

I've been working on building 12 of the SSL 9000, 500-series preamps (I've got 8 done) and I settled on gold panels with cool blue knobs. So I ended up settling on gold with blue as a color scheme for a lot of the things I'm building.

OK, she is finally DONE!

Panel from Frank Rollen came today, and I installed it.

I took the photo in the house tonight, but will take better glamour shots tomorrow with better lighting.

Very nice! The blue knobs look great against the gold panel.

 It's a color scheme I also used on some 500 series SSL 9000 preamps I made.

Took a pic in better light. Faster exposure, less blur.
