Gotham epoxied-in rod piezo demo - no squeeze

"Wooden box - if you see the Gotham Guts photos, you can see the severely hacked away back and sides. I put lots of foil duct tape inside as shielding. "

"I don't think I'd have ever thought about the JB weld. Cool. Is this a metal box as well? I never thought a license plate could sound that good. Gonna steal that one from you. (grins)  Thank you"

Gotham epoxied-in rod piezo demo - no squeeze

"Southern Ray- the piezo rod was epoxied in place with JB Weld (I don’t mess around). I sanded and cleaned the back of the plate with windex first, wiped in a very light layer of JB Weld, then pressed in the rod, and sandwiched it with another…"

Toad,

Thanks for the Friend req! Sorry if I didn't answer right away; our Net access has been spotty the last couple days.

Uncle Toad, I'm back on the grid after being at the house up North with no internet, and saw your comment on the DoublHandy. Thanks for the kind words, I am really happy with the look and sound with the jacks as well. I'm going to try to do a video as you suggested, It wails with a real player! I'm just a builder... so I've gotta go recruit someone to do it justice!
