Assembly of the Neon Section
Under construction (10/6/2005)


Bench tested the neon and Tech 2000 with a laptop driving the voice. I glued the neon to the backplate (I know, it's not the recommended practice but if I break the neon, I'll use Scott's method of adhering the neon to the torso. But, I really like having the neon attached to the backplate.

The Neon power supplier is glued to the back of the backplate and there is a wire connector coming off the power supplier. This allows for easy removal of the neon system.

Parts list:
  • 120 watt amplifier ($130)
  • Three speakers ($70)
  • Tech 2000 Musical Interface and neon power supplier ($95)
  • Transistor and wiring materials ($15)

    Cost so far: Approx $310
