If anyone is looking to buy a 3 string fretted CBG I've just listed one on eBay. It's a nice instrument made by Marshall Stapleton with handmade magnetic pickup. I hardly play it now as I tend to use ones I've made myself. Having a bit of a de clutter! CLICK HERE FOR FULL DETAILS

David, then short answer is that I haven't, bit I have built a couple from bits. They were really basic and worked very well. One will drive my twin 1960's 12  inch Celestion Greenback cabinet really well.

I think this guy takes a 386 to the ultimate. His site gives many options  . I aim to try to build one of his over the summer

Thanks guys for the advice. I have ordered some LM386’s , so when they eventually arrive I’ll let you know how I get on.

Denis

Have you used this amp, if so any good?

Comment by Denis U on March 28, 2019 at 12:41pm

Greg, if you don't mind waiting a while you could try one of these from China on eBay for £1.25.

Just search "386 amplifier" on eBay

LM386 on CBN

Greg

The easiest way would be to buy an amp module, try the LM386, link below, no soldering required. The transformer in the enclosure can be removed.

HELP! I have been able to scrounge some tannoy speakers that were being thrown out at work. 3 x9” speakers and 3 x7” speakers in wood boxes. They look great and should make nice cbg amps, but when it comes to building amps I am a complete newbie. I have downloaded some photos which I hope will give some of you experts out there an idea of what I need to do to convert them into something great . So please have a look and simple advice in plain English would be much appreciated. Lol.

Had the pleasure of being the opening act for Bob Log III on Saturday evening. He was also at the One Man Band fest. While not a CBG player, he is still absolutely barking bat**** mental, and has one fantastic playing style. For a hugely entertaining evening, I can't recommend catching him enough.
