I've just built my first CB amp.  It's a simple 2.5 watt Artec circuit w no reverb.  I recently saw a pic on here of a CB guitar with springs literally mounted inside the body of the guitar to give a…Continue

Hi! I bought an old cassette player/radio at an estate sale (really cheap!) and I'm wondering where/how I start in converting it into a guit amp. I've seen a few vids of some Australian (?) cat doing…Continue

Yep,Naz. Everyone but the one I need. The JF-2 PCB is not on there. The cap values I need are for XC1 & XC2. No big deal, I just wanted to try the optional hook up. Thanks anyway.

Bob, the cap values are on the schematics on that site ...

Like Mark said, there is "it goes to 11", good group, check it out. Maybe we need a tube amp site. I have some chassis & parts & that's on my bucket list if I ever get to it. I hope there is an "Effect pedal" group on here somewhere. Back to my search. I think I have pics of a couple of my amps on here somewhere if you want to look.

Hello everybody. I'll be back soon to get to know ya. Right now I'm on a quest to get help with a fuzz I'm buildinging. PCB from www.DIYEffect.com (China) JH fuzz JF-2, project JHFF, pcb JF-2. Plans include some options but left off the value of one of the caps. Right now I'm not getting output. Works fine in bypass. HELP!

I'm a bit puzzled as to why this group was started when there was already a well established amps group on CB Nation (called "It Goes To 11")

Anyone contemplating amps might do well to look there because there's a lot of discussion and info.

I've built the Supreaux Deux distortion/amp simulator designed by Runoffgroove. I find their designs and articles are clear and quite easy to follow.

Anybody try building their own guitar effects?  I've seen a bunch of kits (some are very expensive, too) and some schematics to build from scratch.  I haven't made the jump yet, but I was wondering if anyone else has.

How many of you have built their own amps from scratch?I have'nt yet,but thats one of the things I'd like to work up to.The amp I have plans for to go with my first CBG build is basiclly I'm gonna rob a old amp of it's guts and place them in a CB or other unusual container.I'm gonna finish my guitar first,then I'll build the amp.

I like to buy old beat up amps and give them a new home inside a cigar box.
