Introduction: 2Watt Guitar Head


2Watt Guitar Head using LM 386 based on masseberg project. Litlle amp for guitar using 9-13 Vdc as input for power supply Here the full project in PDF format


Step 1: Electronic Part


First making the PCB, the are two possible way for me etching by my self or make a PCB in local PCB maker but relatively cost much.
For this one i still use PCB maker because in future it easy to duplicate. Assemble all electronic part  using soldering iron,

Step 2: Casing Part


I think my inspiration like head cabinet type amp. but relative small that i can carry it in my bag. Al the thing from used thing that i can found.

Step 3: Put It All Together


Actually this PCB is tight fit and the cable for pot is to long m but with a little bit push i can make this thing in one box.

For this little text, it would look better as a slide-show.
