What are we gonna build 2013

Post by Zoot Horn » Sat Mar 02, 2013 7:38 am

Last year,when Bob asked some of us what we wanted to build(fun) for 2013,,I spouted,,pre,pre,, to which the Bobfather kinda furled his brow,,looked at me (you folks know that look) and said,, you already have one,,just add gain. He was referring to the amps that we had built the year before.He said that he thought speakers would be fun.So with that said,,does anyone know if thats gonna' happen? Anyhow,, I'm already making plans for this years fest.

Al,, Bob did say that it would be a "bookie"(at least thats my interpretation) with a ribbon,, ,, dunno whats gonna happen,,but we always look forward to the fest,,, the fact of the pre-build( parts etc) is more than my old mind can fathom,either way-- I have a real good feeling about this years fest!!

Is there a certain time during the fest that you do the build or is it ongoing throughout the entire fest. I am thinking about attending this year, but not sure what days I want to attend.

A pre amp would be great if Alex is ready.....I would not care to see the same situation as the amp build where everyone is head over heels involved in nothing but the build...I'd rather listen to peoples' systems than watch everyone building stuff. My 2cents.
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

Some small ribbon speakers would be less time consuming then a preamp would be IMO.! But just relaxing would work too !
