Do you need more than 100W per channel for a studio monitoring?

I use such vocal amps for concerts with 1000 people audience.

Yes, it is a safety switch. The amp contains high voltage so I want it to be lockable by owner so no kids or other careless people can't switch it on.

No doubt you can feel 750V on anodes plus 700V swing (1450V total on peaks). tutt

i owned a nseq-2 for a long while, had to sell it.. this one came up.. bought it on a lark.. it sounds nothing like the solid state side of the nseq-2... this sounds very very sweet and very very colored.. i rarely use more then 1 or 2db.

i'll email fred, see if he cares to share any history

Rack mount form factors, rear and front panels are well occupied. Designed by somebody with good drawing art skills,

...though a heatsink is not properly oriented.

It's nicely designed for sure, but they could have made the box less deep, saves material costs, packing and shipping costs, which reduces price for the end user which makes sense to any manufacturer IMHO.

If it is a prototype they could use surplus boxes available. You know, since manufacturing went abroad prototyping went to be very costly...

But the customer wouldn't feel so good about paying through the nose for some rinky-dink little box 3" deep that only weighs half a pound. Empty space is cheap, from a marketing perspective.

Guitar wiring counts, too!

The track can only sound as good as the source, right?

Perhaps there is value in wiring an electric guitar with a bit of attention to detail, as follows:

1) All cavities coated with Electrodag shielding paint
2) Custom-taper pots from CTS that feature a really robust construction and a THICK conductive track
3) Low-pass filter caps specifically spec'd for the guitar, made by Hoveland
4) 12 gauge solid copper ground link prevents any loose pot from spinning and breaking connections .

Simple stuff that helps to make a better tool for the rest of the recording chain to capture.

Pictured...a typical TCM Carolina control cavity.

Nice work, Terry. I guess it doesn't matter that the ground wires don't all terminate to one pot?
FWIW, I like to replace the standard pickup leads with Mogami W2944.
