As I start building the second batch of amps, one thing that hopefully improves the consistency of the electronics is using a CNC router. The first attempt came back and looks very nice. Also a nice "hello world" to future electricians who may stumble upon it.
Because a guitar riff speaks more than a thousand words, I had some great guitar players try out the Film Noir 50 in a variety of styles. Although recorded simply, I hope these clips give a sense of the variety of tones this amp is able to produce. The clips are here. Thanks for listening!
