not sure if any of you out there play guitar or not, but here are a few of my latest projects.

Hand built copy of a 1958 Fender Deluxe - 5E3 - It's not quiet finished, but I'm hoping to have it done tonight for it's first trial.

I know what you mean, I finally had to build an attenuenator for that marshal cabinet when I have my tube amp plugged in. It just gets too loud by the time you have the amp cranked up enough to get the good distortion out of it.

I am going to start learning to play. I bought a cheap Peavey electric with 5watt amp. Its tuned and it holds a tune pretty good. I also have a Fender acoustic. I asked Santa-wife for lessons.

I built a "little smokey" amp but it has a high pitched squeal to it. I think I need to add a gain pot. or something to the circuit. I built the amp in a small computer speaker, put the jack on the front with an LED and a on/off toggle switch on top. runs off a 9volt battery.

That amp sounds pretty cool. Got any pics?

That's very similar to the tube screamer, just in a stripped down version. Looks like it uses the opamp for gain only. I like it.

maybe a variable cap between pin 1 and 8. I think a .47uf cap might work as well, not sure.
Maybe get more power out of it by stepping up the voltage to 12volts with a wall adapter.

The Little Smokey amp also has an output and this one doesnt. The Little Smokey will actually drive a 4x12 cabinet and rock pretty good. Check you tube for Little Smokey amp videos.

Hahahaha, nice, and thanks. It sounds great, hard to describe the tone change, almost like it broadened the range of tone rather than just a brighter tone. My uncle has been playing in a local blues band since his teens and wants me to build another for him, but mount a tube screamer and a delay pedal inside the guitar. The plan is to put the pedals on mini toggle switches, then have trim pots inside for the tone/gain/level/delay. It'll probably be a month or two before I start that one though.

Well, haven't worked on it for awhile, but I finally got the Fender deluxe mounted inside a cabinet.
