    case for a bass

    And yes, that would have been a better way of doing it. Oh well.

    case for a bass

    I've still got my 1963 Framus Star bass. What's the jazz bass ?
  3. I couldn't find a suitable case for my Ibanez Artcore AGBV 200. It is semi acoustic, so quite wide, and short scale. Bought some 3.6 ply, and some 95 x 12 pine and some 44 x 12 pine. I got this from a local timber merchant, but it's still bent and twisted, as you can see from the photos. I can't straighten it, so used the best bits and will sand off the worst bits at the end. Drew around the bass, allowing for adding some foam. I had to plane down the 95 to 62 so the case wasn't too deep. Cut the ply, stuck on the sides to make the bottom half.

    I'll do a separate build diary ( while we wait for Christine )

    While we're waiting for Christine, I thought I'd share my effort. Not hijacking this wonderful build, this is just for a joke. Rather than build a bass, I though I'd build a case for my bass. The wood almost fits. Just needed some old bits of wood, a saw, hammer & nails. Don't know what all the fuss is about.
  6. Hi. What is the actual scale length of this ? Richard

    in that first picture, you have a syringe. Are you on drugs ? I wouldn't blame you
  8. York 5 stringer found a solution for me. A Tiger bass gig bag from DJM. A bit flimsy, but fits and should do the job.
  9. Hudson bass in Cobalt blue. Totally unmarked. Active preamp. 34" scale. Weighs 3.4 kg. Bought from Cranes in 2016, 'cos it looks nice. £290 plus delivery, or can deliver locally in Berkshire / Hampshire
  10. Thanks. I think the Viking may do it.
  11. I need a case for my new Ibanez AGBV 200A. It is 115 cm long and 38 cm wide. Any ideas ?

    In the 4th picture above, why are you clamping the headstock ? Isn't it from one piece of wood? How did you fix the headstock to the neck ?
  14. Just realised that I need to add battens in the front, to fix the grille to. I will need to squeeze the driver and the port away from the edge.
  15. having read the '1x12 cab to replace 410' thread, I assume not. I will stick to the Beyma.
  16. Just a thought, but would an Eminence Kappalite 3012 LF work in this ?
  17. I've revised the plans, and now as Jpegs.
  18. The area of 1 x 110 ( 9.5 cm2 ) is 1 1/2 times that of 2 x 64 pipes ( 6.5 cm2 ) Is this how it handles more power ? A 110 will fit, if I move the speaker down a few mm, but it will be close to the edge - around 12 mm. Or I could put the port in the back ? Or I could use four 50 mm pipes which will fit in the front ?
  19. board marked and ready to saw. Maybe not as accurate as Christine
  20. Insulation. The board I'm using is leftover from a friend's flooring, and has around 6 mm of pretty solid sound insulation glued to one side of it. Will this help, or should I remove it ?
  21. ok, thanks. I'll convert them at work tomorrow. But for now I have taken a photo of them.
  22. Why haven't these pdf's appeared as pictures ?
  23. But I have drawn the plans. First one is how it should look, with my ATS cab on top. Second is the detail, and third is the cutting list. cab design - 1.pdf cab design - 2.pdf cab design - 3.pdf
  24. thank you so much Phil - I wasn't looking forward to doing that. Richard
