"Radio Cubana" Cigar Box Guitar Amplifier - Dual inputs for Guitars AND Smartphones!
This special hand-crafted cigar box amplifier features a nice, big all-wood cigar box. The amp board itself is 2.5-watts and powered by a 9-volt battery, and it really puts out a nice loud sound. We laser-cut a custom speaker grill design (inspired by vintage radios from the 1930's) into the front of this box to give it that extra bit of pizzazz.
The dimensions of this amp are: 8 1/4" wide x 6" high x 4 1/4" deep. The box is an all-wood Cosechero Cigars Robustos brand cigar box. Despite the name we've given this design, no part of this amplifier or its components originated in Cuba.
This amp is one of C. B. Gitty's "Short Run" models, where a limited number of amps are built to a specific design. Each of these production models is designed and built by hand in our own New Hampshire workshop, so you know you are getting a great item!
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 on this amp:
· Stylish, distinctive all-wood red finish cigar box with laser-cut speaker grill
· Panel-mount tone/gain control
· Gold On/Off/Volume and Tone Knobs with ruby inset indicator
· Externally accessible battery tray holder
· Distinctive gold hardware
· Brass Trunk Corners
· 3.5mm Auxiliary Input for Smartphones and MP3 players
We also provide just the amp parts, if you are interested in building one from your own box or other custom enclosure. Be sure to check out or other listings for the amp parts kit!
