    We got this job from a professional Balloon Twister. He needed some serious help with his pedal board. We replaced the chunk of plywood with a custom solid walnut frame. We hid all the power supplies and wireless receiver underneath. An improvement.

    I Prefer Blondes

    Here is a great example of how the finish and other simple details can greatly change the character and style of your amp. Pictured is the Percolator and 1×8 cabinet with a few simple custom variations:

    • No Outside edge detail; the wood remains square
    • Golden Oak stain
    • Black Burlap grill cloth
    • Custom handle, appropriated from a drawer somewhere in the attic

    Here’s the Percolator in a unique black polyurethane finish. We were exploring various finishes to use for the Ready-to-Play product line and tried this. It’s a slightly transparent black-colored poly, so the grain just barely shows through. We think it looks great, but it was very tricky to apply, even for an experienced cabinet finisher. We wanted to offer our products in a finish the consumer could also apply to the kits, so we went with the Dark Walnut stain instead.

    Black-poly finish. A One-off.

    Wanna have this one for your very own? We may be persuaded to part with it, if the price is right…
