Agreed. Charlie, that thing is cool. I should be getting my demeter soon, I kinda wish I would have hit you up. I did not know you were this far along with your own amp, I bet it sounds great.

I wasn't planning on doing the amp module build until next fall, but circumstances worked to push me into taking a break from the preamp and powering through. Glad I did, since I now have a fully working non-rack rig. Realistically, I won't have anything to sell any too soon anyway though, most likely. Loved the Demeter preamps I've played through, and really looking forward to checking the integrated amps out.

Finally got around to getting the permanent front panel done for the power amp:

Bruce, I'll do a back panel pic once I work out my final design, but that's not an especially high priority and I need more gigging time with the preamp before I finalize the feature set.

Hmmmmm....Of course just scheming....But a three band with two blend controls for my three pickup bass? Would that be possible, PW?

The preamp doesn't care too much what kind of wiring scheme is in front of it, but I'll have to think about that a bit. In general I avoid blend controls though, as they never get to the real sweet spots with my basses. For me the sweet spots are often settings like 87%/94%, or 64%/78%. With three pickups it seems like blends would be an even bigger compromise?

Anyhow, I've now built up 5 of these, in 8 different flavors total via recycling. My two favorites are now in my two basses, three guys are doing test builds, and I'll let things shake out for a while before contemplating whether there's any market for yet another onboard preamp. Doubtful though. At least this whole project didn't cost a fortune like so many of mine tend to. [smilie=fun_84.gif]

I got to hear this last week... Pretty much an OMG moment...

And it looks like it's now a part of Mal World. That was a really fun build, probably the best one I've done so far in many ways really.

Until the next one at least:

Which won't be making any noise for another week or two. Pretty close to the contents of both those boxes rolled into one, but missing a few trick features due to space constraints.
