ive had a marshall VS102R for about 12 years now. i got it when i was in school, and a 100W 2x12 combo kicked asses far and wide as far as kit went. it was loud, it had my multi effects in front of it, and to be honest, i didnt really know that much about tone etc back then!
now ive been playing for a little longer, i wouldnt say i knew a lot about tone, but i certainally know that there are better/nicer sounding amps out there, marshall or otherwise. so i am on the lookout for something valve driven, but havent gotten round to figuring out exactly what i want from a new amp yet, so thats on the back burner for a while!
so, on to the thread topic...
...what im looking to do is go from a 2x12 combo, to a head and 4x12, just for sheer ballsyness, and coz ive always wanted a half stack/full stack! since i cant decide what i want from a new amp, and my current one serves me fine, i thought it could be kinda cool to have a go at the whole modding/experimenting side of things, and turn the VS102R into a VS100H and build my own head cabinet (just for fun!).
that in itself is simple enough (famous last words), but what i really want to do is make it really cool by the time im done with it. here what i want to do, but i need help on the electrical side of things (hopefully from you guys!!):
1) build a head cabinet to house the amp - it will be mounted to the top of the head, just as it is in the combo, coz thats where the screws are.
2) put a sheet of perspex in the gap below it at the front
3) have 3 different coloured LED bars/strips mounted inside the cab, at the bottom at the front, underneath a slight lip.
4) have these LED bars strips light up individually upon selection of each of the 3 channels - so for example, green for clean, blue for OD1 and red for OD2. (this, i know, is the hard part of the whole problem!)
ive looked around the web and other forums, and i can find people putting light bars in that come on with the power, ive found guys with the jewel type power LEDs putting 2 in (blue and red), for a 2 channel amp, and they can have red for clean and purple for OD (they can have 1, or 1+2, not 1 or 2), but i cant find anyone who's done what i want to do!
i have no quarms with taking it to suitable places to get work done (im not such a dab hand with electrics), just so long as i know in advance when im expecting to done, etc etc etc.
so, to the technical gurus out there - IS THIS POSSIBLE???
