$ 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
