My little gems
« on: March 31, 2006, 10:44:20 AM »



My first little gem.  It runs on one 9v and is in a cheap treasure chest that I bought for $2 at a dollar store.  The 1/8" jack isn't a headphone jack, but an external speaker jack for my pot cab.






Here is my little gem clipper.  I can hook it onto my pocket and walk around playing guitar in my apartment.  No volume control, I just use the guitar's volume...and leave it all the way up anyway.  The switch on it goes from clean to OD.  It runs on 3xAA.

The schematic is available at runoffgroove.com and in the schematics section of the forum.

Here's my little LM386-based "practice" amplifier. It's almost too loud for apartment use but could benefit from little more headroom when i'm playing in duo with an acoustic guitar.  :( Too bad i cannibalized two 5" 4 ohm speakers after building the case... Maybe i'll use them for the next LM386 project.

The pot isn't technically part of the amp though...since I built it as a combo, thats just an external cab I can hook up  ;D
