Make DIY guitar amplifier with operational amplifiers? Answered

hello I'm new, I'm not very good at electronics, I wanted to ask if I can make a small guitar amp with an operational amplifier!
I have 2 UA741  DATASHEET = http://http://circuits.datasheetdir.com/37/NXP-UA741-pinout.jpg

Online I've seen several projects, but used LM386
Exemple http://www.hobby-hour.com/electronics/lm386-200.gif

is possible to create an amplifier, having 2 operational amplifiers UA741, or if there is a scheme that I can follow??

sorry if I did something wrong, but then again I'm new :)
Thanks in advance!


High power no - BUT you could make a practice amp - The Ruby amp is one such but uses the 386 (for good reason)

Various guitar effects may come from using op amps.


is another one.

You need a POWER amp, like the 386, opamps won't work for this
