TTSH, speaker baffle mod

This was a quick “let’s see what happens” kind of mod for my TTSH.

In their stock config, the TTSH loudspeakers are supposed to be fastened to the circuit board, which is then fastened to the front plate. Handy approach eg. for having the electronics as a entirely separate, single ‘module’ for servicing etc. But problem with this is that it leaves a ~12mm gap between the driver and the front panel.

TTSH, Gettin’ sticky wit it

Alright on to some finished surfaces with the TTSH build.. This entry is all about tolex, from someone with zero previous experience on applying / handling technique. If you ended up here looking for some kind of advice, this may (or may not) be a good read. You’ve been warned! :)

Do also check out what has happened in this project previously, links are at the bottom.

TTSH, on the case

Picking things up from the initial design of my TTSH case, I sure was itching it to get down with some hands-on work. First up, cut the boards which make up the basic frame..:

TTSH, road case design

Despite all the cutting board & dust cover biz in december (and against all expectations) I also had a few moments to start sketching CAD plans for the road case of my Two-Thousand-Six-Hundred. These initial sketches evolved into a marginally final plan by early january.

By “marginally final” I mean that the design is perhaps “80% there”. I really see no point in putting more work to draw the design all the way, as some of the fine details are better off handled on the fly. Kind of goes with practicing wood work etc. :).. Here’s that design:
