Gregory mate, I am a terrified NOT electrician, take care man!!!!!!!!!! Waiting to hear from you ALIVE AND WELL, what the hell, best of luck, Chris. :)

no not all can be guitar amps!...you can hurt yourself...the battery powered are best, but check this out...try at your own risk!

Rodeny fruits did it!..but I only do battery type

 

Thought I'd hijack this thread rather than start a new one as my question is on the same track.

I've acquired a Panasonic ghetto blaster - AM FM Short wave and tape.

I haven't taken it apart yet but 2 questions.........

It's battery and mains. What I've read on here says that using mains is dangerous. How about taking the 9v from a wallwart and using that on the battery terminals?

I assume the tape head is stereo. What do I need to do to have guitar sound thru bith channels?

Thanks

Denis
