Sorry! I meant to post this in the "Other stuff Category"
I'm really hooked on cigar guitar box building. The graphics and construction of wooden and paper cigar boxes seems to have a pretty wide appeal. I love all of the cigar box amplifiers that I've seen, I'm not much of an electronics guy but seeing those cool little cigar box amps has inspired me to begin working on an extension speaker that would connect to the amp or any amp for that matter. This would be dare I say it, the world's first and only cigar box Leslie speaker. Think of a miniature version of the real deal. Since there is a small motor and moving parts involved I thought it would be best to make the core of the cabinet from 3/4 inch pine and trim it out with actual cigar box parts. Do you think that's cheating? Or did I forget the first rule of cigar box building (there are no rules)
You answered your own question. To quote the PINK FAIRYS...
I guess you might know it might be a case where few people any more even know what a Leslie speaker is......
Not only do I know, but I can honestly say I once owned one. Now its been MANY years ago and I dont recall. How was the connection made? Wiper contacts? I see this as problematic for clean commutation. Plus you need a variable speed motor drive solution.
Sounds fun, just do it!
Jesus help me. Get back Satan. I think I'm flasing back to the Summer of 69. Yellow sunshine. That chick with the flowers in her hair and a mattress strapped to her back screaming, "curb service...curb service"! Where is Pork Pie? I can't feel my feet....LOL Enjoy. Sound like a cool idea.
