Cigar Box Guitar Dual-Input Amplifier - Solid Wood Acid Box (Model #5)
If you've been looking for a great, custom and affordable Cigar Box Amplifier to go with your Cigar Box Guitar, then look no further!
These great little amps are hand-crafted in the U.S.A. in C. B. Gitty's workshop. Their heart is an Artec SDA-T 2.5W amp board, which is powered by a 9V battery. The amp accepts a standard 1/4" mono guitar/amp cord as input, and output is through a 3.5" 1W speaker. A red LED power indicator is included to help prevent accidental battery drain. These little amps put out a very respectable sound (especially with the gain cranked all the way up), and in our opinion are much superior to the smaller half-watt and one-watt amps!
The dimensions of this amp are: 6 1/2" wide x 6" high x 4 1/8" deep. The box is a beautiful, STURDY hardwood Acid brand box (delabeled), with a chrome wire speaker over a copper grill, vintage-style knobs, and other great features.
This amp is one of C. B. Gitty's "custom" models, where each amp is unique in design. Each of these custom amps is designed and signed by C. B. Gitty himself, so you know you are getting a great item! They are built in C. B. Gitty's workshop halfway between the White Mountains and the seacoast of New Hampshire, either by C. B. himself or one of his highly skilled helpers.
Here's a demo video to show you what our little amps can do. This is not the exact amp listed here, but the sound and volume level is a good representative of all of our amps built on this 2.5W board:
C. B. Gitty selects the nicest, most suitable smaller cigar boxes as his amp cases, and then dresses them up with all sorts of great features, such as those seen in this amp:
· Beautiful hardwood Acid-brand cigar box
