Devsound does Dragonfly camp

Posted on August 23rd, 2011

Our original idea for the guerilla camp jam was to have three boomboxes, lots of little noisy gadgets and big party party. This got scaled down a bit after we learned that the camp site should be quiet to allow the people some sleep. Still, on Sunday morning we got some noise going…

Ancient Boombox Discovery

Posted on June 11th, 2011

I was visiting my parents some weeks ago and found this beauty in the garage. A boombox built by my brother and my grandpa about 12 years ago.  Its built of plywood and finished with high finish. It has three different speakers and a radio car reciver!  We hooked it up to a car battery and it still worked perfectly! My brother can be seen in one of the pictures while admireing his work. (or his outboardmotor) Read more »

Last April in Stadsparken Lund – Devsound was there!

Posted on May 5th, 2011

Every year there is a great party in Lund. Its not an organized party, there is no advertizement, no one is responsible, people just come. This year 25000 people made it to the park to have a good time. Its probably the biggest sponaneous festival/thingy in… Sweden, yeah.. but… scandinavia?
Anyway! We were there, and we brought two boomboxes. Mine and Daveys Reaggaebox. Then Ludvig came around with his pink box as well. So we hoocked them all up togheter and played loud! =D
Lots of people stopped and danced, some played on our instruments, some gave us beer! Great times! We even made it in to the newspaper! Some one took a picture of us and it landed on their web. Its the first one in the gallery.
Later on there was a big party outside of  Smålands Nation that we attended.

Unfortinatly my pretty orange speakers couldnt take the pressure of the party as you will see in the pictures. But i know how to fix it up. Im still happy!

Rivaling Boombox in Lund! =D

Posted on April 27th, 2011

Yesterday i went to the park to check out Ludvigs (also known as professor combover)  sound system. He was the one who told me about the Lepai Amp, and he bought one pretty much a week before i did. I had to hear how it sounded in his speakers. It was great! You could pretty much touch the bass in the air. Did i mention the colour? Does people look happy?

Visiting Zippy-X in GBG

Posted on March 28th, 2011

I went on a trip to Gothenburg last week to hold a lecture with Olle from Talon-FC. While up there i decided to stay for a while to visit some friends that live there, one of them being simon. (or zippy-x as he called himself during the 90s when he was making awesome metal-XMs.) We sat down with our common intererest, guitar effect pedals! The plan was to build a delaypedal that simon has designed but all the components hadnt arrived.

I had the phase 45 and decided to finish it that evening. wich i did but it didnt work as planned, fixed that yesterday though. It was a bad solderjoint. as it is in 99% of all cases. =) it works fine now.

Simon worked on his specially designed envelope follow filter, you can see on his face how good it sounds! He tried out some different caps for the filter and some of them gave pretty funny results. I can add that this was the first time i met his girlfriend and im afraid she thought we were reallyreally boring when we just sat there soldering all evening. =)

Good times!!

Anyway, ill have some samples from the effects that are finished for the bag sooooon!

I also got my christmas-present from my cousin Andreas when i visited. A digital thermometer that shows the temperature in binary. I think he wants me to learn binary. =) Can anyone figure out how warm it is on the picture in the slideshow? =)

And the last thing: Im building a BoomBox! Its a must have for the summer! I got the amp today and i bought some speakers at a flee market this weekend. The plan is to have those two small speakers and a big one to give the bass. Im probably gonna spend this afternoon building a temporary box for it.  Anyone have any experience in building these kind of machines?

Well, thats all for now!
