$ altoids amp (penguin mints amp) $ Answered

hey guys, i was wanting to make an altoids amp however i noticed the instructable up at the moment isnt the most descriptive or has the best photos. so i am asking for someone to make an instructable so that even me, can make one. i am ok with simple electronics and will persevere until i get the desired result . the poster should have a decent camera (for macro images) and describe the components and what they do. i will offer a cash reward for the poster (a whole $10!). thanks alot Cew27

so you want an amp for your guitar, that amp dosn't put out that much power, only enough for headphones i can show you how to make a more powerful amp for actual speakers

also for the cmoy one, could you make one as similar to that as possible that would work with a guitar, like could you adapt it to be capable of amplifying a guitar?

the powerful amp is loud, and puts out more powerduh

the Cmoy amp the one you linked to is used to amplify music only for headphones, and requires little power

so i the point of the cmoy one to just make the music louder that u are listening to? You can't plug a guitar into it or anything?
