quick and easy way?
I need to make a guitar amplifier iso box today, and it needs to be cheap, quick, easy, and really effective.
hey tommy,i have found all kindsa stomp box diagrams an old effects schematics on the net,bet they’d have a DI box there too somewhere,i never take notes,so icant stear ya to an addy,but i know’s they there man,go pack!!!
an old fridge or the backseat of a car will work pretty well. Packed w/ plenty towels/blankets, of course. Perhaps even one of those half size fridges like you buy when you go to college with a small amp cranked (if it was, say, a 15 watt marshall or something the like). That might be dangerous due to close proximity slapback, but I think you could compensate for it, and you can usually get them for about $150USD.
Actually, saving edmund, that old fridge idea…darn it all, I just had to get a new fridge and they took the old one away…
Well, I bought some cheap plywood, and a few pieces of scrap 2 x 2, and some carpet padding, and slapped one together. Stuck a mic mount in there with a clip for an sm 57.
takes care of a lot of the volume, but the low end, of course, goes through the plywood like neutrinos through the planet.
Anyway, it will do the trick.
