- Onyx Reserve Cigar Box Guitar Amplifier - Great for Busking and Practicing!
We designed this great little cigar box amplifier specifically for buskers and other musicians on the go. It features a nice compact all-wood Onyx reserve cigar box, with a belt clip mounted on the back. The amplifier parts in it are the same as our other cigar box amps: a 2.5-watt Artec SDA-T board powered by a 9-volt battery, a 4-watt 8-ohm 3-inch speaker and 1/4" input jack (standard guitar cord size).
We added black volume and tone/gain knobs to complement the cigar box design and give this amp a nice look, but otherwise we kept it simple. This is meant to be a workhorse amplifier for use by performing musicians who need a volume boost and don't want to haul a larger amp around. It is also great for use as a practice amplifier. Battery life under full load is about 5 hours. The side of the amp is 6" wide, 5.5" tall and 2.75" deep.
These are built in the USA in our C. B. Gitty New Hampshire workshops, using both US and imported parts.
