Got some really cool boxes

Started this discussion. Last reply by JB Feb 4. 4 Replies

Found these at my local cigar store today. Amongst others, I got a couple of the green Brick House boxes and a few Chillin' Moose boxes, which I've never seen. They're cool as hell but not…Continue

I decided to try some Uncle Crow type builds after watching Shane's video. I'm going to try a resonator and I have a couple questions. First, will the box resonate better if I connect the reso/dish…Continue

"I seldom think that far ahead. I'm thinking something strictly electric, they do resonate better than I thought they would. Something with a pickup and hard tail bridge is my initial plan."

Found these at my local cigar store today. Amongst others, I got a couple of the green Brick House boxes and a few Chillin' Moose boxes, which I've never seen. They're cool as hell but not particularly well constructed, they're mostly OSB, oh well, they look really cool.See More

"Okay. Probably 6 series tubes, some early Fender Champ style amps used that series tubes. Some can be used and some not. If not, you could easily sell them on ebay to some old radio enthusiast."

"It's not a radio, it's a UHF converter. It has two tubes that I don't recognize, I'd have to look them up, I don't believe they are audio frequency tubes."

"You could turn that little tube radio into a tube amp.  What tubes are in it?"

Patrick Allison replied to Patrick Allison's discussion Rare Corojo Punch Box, Practice Amp Project
"Well, this was mach ado over nothing! It was pretty easy to drill. I don't think this thing was used much, if at all. The tubes look brand new and the bakelite is pretty flexible, much more so than I though it would be."

"The top is thinner and overall, the box is much lighter than the new black boxes. It's got a couple scratches on the top, no doubt from getting shifted around on the store shelf, but it should make a great guitar."

Kentucky Mojo replied to Patrick Allison's discussion Rare Corojo Punch Box, Practice Amp Project
"Is that Rare Corojo box a thin one, or one of the big square boxes? The reason I ask is because those are very hard to find (usually around $20 on ebay when they do come around and are from the 90's), but make GREAT instruments cause the top is…"

"Approximately 8"w x 6"h and probably 5" deep, it's small. I don't have space for a 4" speaker and amp. I have a few good 3" drivers. I'm going to use one of them."

Paul Craig replied to Patrick Allison's discussion Rare Corojo Punch Box, Practice Amp Project
"Those are good amps. Your biggest decision will be the speaker. I'm sure it'll have to be small and small speakers can be good or terrible. I don't use anything under 6" diameter so I don't know what to recommend. What are…"

"That could start a whole new conversation! I think I'm going to try the Artec amp from CB Gitty with a gain pot. I'd welcome suggestions and I can always change it later on but I think that amp will do a pretty good job."
