Completed cabinet

I finished the cabinet today, and it looks pretty nice!

After the five coats of lacquer, I needed to drill a couple of holes which will eventually be used to mount the chassis. I had been wondering about how to find the right place to put the holes, as I only had one chance to get this right, and there wasn't much room for error.

Luckily I found a template online that I could print out and place over the cabinet to indicate where to drill. I was also able to borrow an electric drill from someone at the office.

After a glass of beer I had enough courage to give it a go. The holes went in cleanly, and in exactly the right place. Phew!

I put all the hardware back on (feet and handle), and then added the Marsh logo plate on the front.

Looking good!

Now back to the electricals and the chassis...

  1. Are you still waiting for some parts to come in?

    In the meantime, check out this demonstration of how to wire a Champ in 30 seconds.

    If that doesn't work, go to the Victoria Amps site and click on videos. The demo of their Champ will remind you of why you chose that amp. The demo video of some of the others -- like the Ivy League may make you drool.
