When our searching for boxes, I found this little jewel for a buck. The liner wood was loose fit, and served as most of the needed pieces to house the baby Gitty amp, and petition off half the box for accessories. Sounds good, and it completely enclosed the amp

Everything but the guitar, a lot of room in there

Very cool Bruce!

I’m working on a similar amp project.  May include a preamp and using two lantern batteries instead of a 9-volt battery. A headphone plugin is also another option...  what kind of speaker are you using?

great for playing at the park!

It’s the 3 inch that came with the Gitty 2.5w amp kit. My next amp will likely be a 10 tuber.
That should read 10 w tuber.

Clever use of the space to make it a storage box when not in use.  Great idea!

Thanks. I’m legally blind, and use a guide dog. So I either walk or use public transit. I asked myself, if I hang my guitar across my back, how I could get the rest of the stuff minimized to one hand carry so I could walk to the park with my dog. Rather than yet another gear bag, of which I’ve got several, make the amp the “kit box”
