DIY tissue box guitar amp

tissue box amp

I made a great little battery-powered practice amp thanks to the ubiquitous “Little Gem” project by

Little Gem schematic

The schematic I used for building the amp. The main component of interest is the LM386 op-amp chip to be inserted in socket - a popular choice for battery powered amps.

My first time filming/editing (I used Premiere Pro)! The video highlights the build process of the amp - keep an eye out for a demo of it at the end. :-)

My recording setup

My recording setup: one camera on a tripod, two tablets with chairs/boxes as make-shift stands, a mic, a laptop running Audacity and a bunch of desk lamps.
