In 2013, an old friend of mine, Johnny Balmer at Alchemy Audio contacted me with the idea of building a device to aid the fine folk who lovingly take care of guitar and bass amplifiers! (How could I refuse...?)
The first one literally took an entire work day to cut out and then sand down. As anyone who creates things will tell you; it generally gets easier the more you go...and so naturally, by the time I did the third one I had reduced my time to approximately 66%~! I think they turned out pretty nice, and whereas I feel that this 3/4" aspen is the way to go, if you would like one made in a different hardwood of your choice, I think Johnny and I would be happy to accommodate your request~!
