Pimp My Preamp... Wood by some young guy
« on: 1 Sep 2007, 05:59 pm »
I recently corresponded with some young guy (Scott) regarding making a face plate and knobs for my Transcendent Sound preamp.  I love the preamp, but wasn't crazy about its looks, so I decided to find a cure for that and this was it.

For a fair price and through great communication, Scott made a bird's eye maple face plate with inlaid ebony selector markers along with contrasting ebony knobs.  I couldn't be happier with the outcome, it looks stunning and the service was very fast.  Scott has employed a hand polishing technique that provides a nice, natural gloss and depth to the wood.  Here are a few photos that don't quite convey the beauty of his work. :thumb:

Henry,

That looks sweeeeeet! Maybe I can ask Scott to do my Anjali amplifier, and pimp the side panels with African Bubinga, or some dark wood.  aa

Best,
Anand.

Thanks. Woodworking is just practice and patience with a little bit of luck.
