Hi, i might be asking too much but is it possible to fit that kind of circuit in a 1590a enclosure. It would basically be a muff circuit (which one??) with a drive, level, tone controls and a dry switch (could be internal). Anybody can help?

BYOC makes a 1590A muff kit. Tweak a few component values and it'll be well-suited for bass. Google "Bluebeard muff" or "GGG Tuned Muff" for the schematic version that many bass players seem to think is the best version for bass.

Thank you so much for the response. How about having a dry switch?

I guess that depends on how good you are visualizing 3D spaces, and how accurately you can drill. It should be possible to fit the muff circuit, 3 pots, a buffer/splitter/combiner board, and another switch or pot in a 1590A, but you might need to do a custom PCB layout or move to SMD components.

If it were me, I'd be looking at a buffered splitter before the muff circuit, with one output signal going to the muff, and the other going thru a clean boost tailored to match the muff's max output. That output would be controlled by a level pot before being recombined with the muff signal path at the output. You could do it all with a quad opamp and a handful of resistors and caps. But cramming it in a tiny box like that? Not for amateurs :twisted:

EDIT: for an opamp clean boost, along with the 2-ch splitter and the combiner, you'd need 5 opamps. Bummer.

1 = input buffer
2 = Channel A Send (clean)
3 = Channel A Boost
4 = Channel B Send (muff)
5 = Combiner / Output Buffer

A green Russian muff needs no tweaking if you wanted to go that route in addition to, because I know you’re gonna want to build them all once you start.
