  • Guitar amp styled TriTrix MTM

    Finally finished my TriTrix build, which is my second build, after the Madeleine.
    I wanted to give the design a bit of a twist, so ditched the kit cabinets and decided to build them myself, aiming for some old-school guitar amp look with some solid wood touch .

    The cabinets are made out of 3/4" Baltic birch, front panels are stained red oak with matte wipe-on poly finish. Everything else is wrapped in Marshall style tolex.
    Here's the end result and some in-progress photos.

          Agreed those looks pretty awesome. Love the dark stain and the black sides. I actually like that you didn't even fill the screw holes on the front. I'm guessing that was deliberate, but it adds to the look perfectly. I wouldn't have been able to let myself NOT fill the holes. Nice work!

            Great looking Tritrix!

            These would look even cooler with the "Tritrix" logo done in 'Marshall' style lettering!

            Maybe not.....

            Well done!

              Cool idea for a finish, and they look great! What are your impressions of the sound?

                Wow! You definitely bumped the looks of your Tritrix up a notch or two. Very nice concept and execution. As Geoff said, they would look cool with a logo on the front.

                  Those are really sharp, I love it.
                  I agree on the lettering idea if you can do it somehow. It would cement the effect you're going for. Maybe your name in script, or Tritrix in script or whatever lettering many guitar amps use?
                  Those are COOL!

                    Probably the best looking tritrix ive seen. Good job! The tritrix is one of speakers. I just love how good they are for the money.

                      This was, in fact, deliberate I had to order black screws from PE just for that reason, I was going for a bit more "industrial" look, if you will.

                      That's a great idea, should be doable with a CNC laser pretty easily!

                      The sound is fantastic! I got them hooked up to a Yamaha R-S202, bluetooth for now, but choosing between the available DACs for RaspberryPI to stream from my home server,

                      Thanks Tom! I am already researching what can be done! Love that idea too, thinking between black plastic or etched metal...
