Neat :)

Nice job Daryl. Keep it up!

Where did you get it? I've been looking for this amp and can't find it for sale

Ebay looked for "guitar amp kit" there were more there last night. I went looking for a basic solder your own for my grand kids. Ive been trying out a lap steel I just made on it and it kiks azz!

Great job, Daryl.  Using a ToneMonster is not cheating.  

New toy for the amp, a lap steel.
I got the SD-MAH5. and the Jensen MOD6-15 six inch speaker. The circritry emulates 5 differnt amps from nice tone to metal shread. I can also input music from my I phone to listen to or play along with. I use a battery pack of double A batteries for 12 volts instead of 9. All who have seen it try to steal it!! It looks great and plays better. ;-). Im impressed with what I got, I chose this model for the extra features NOT available on the other units.
Tone Monster recomended the 8 ohm so thats what I used. I have a $15 dollar amp version with tone/volume and guitar jack only that you have to solder yourself from on-line. Works ok it just doesnt have the same versitility but it is cheap. And people are happy to ad that to a guiter purchase.
Its only rated at like 2.5 watts I believe but its loud enough to get the neighbors attention. For REALLY loud practice I feed it into my suround sound.;-) my playing is done either at home or in someones back yard so big sound isnt what I need. I dont do "gigs" just putzing around.
