The “Re-AMP” Box

A local producer asked me to design and build him a “re-Amp” box which takes a line level signal from the console and turns it into a guitar signal so that it can be sent to a real amp (or pedal) and processed …

well, there’s an extra step that needs to occur in the console first, but the idea is to produce an equivalent circuit whereby the coupling of all three circuits (console, box, amp) will “act” like a guitar PU going through a cable and unto the input of a tube amp … a variable capacitor switch is used to mimic the effect of varying cable runs, and a volume pot is included

    Wow what can i say, that looks amazing, i admire your work.
    I have been interested in buying a re amp box for a while, now i want to build this exact one, and i think i may have most of the parts lying around, except maybe the transformer?? if that is what it is. i don’t suppose you have a schematic and a parts list for the build ? i would really appreciate it if you do, could you mail me it ?

    Regards, Jon 😉

    HI JON,

    THANKS FOR YOUR INQUIRY, BUT FOR THE MOMENT I’M KEEPING THESE THOUGHTS PRIVATE … I’M WORKING DIRECTLY WITH RECORDING (FAKE) ENGINEERS TO SEE HOW THIS THING PERFORMS // TO BE HONEST, I HAVE MY DOUBTS ABOUT ITS TECHNICAL PURPOSE AND EFFICACY … EVEN THO, THEY’VE TOLD ME THEY WUV IT AND WORKS GREAT

    CERTAINLY CAN BE USED TO IMPRESS PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS … :p
