Amp #147 Motorola Intercom Cigar Box Guitar Amplifier
Old Motorola bakelite intercom speaker, 2.5 watt Guitar Fuel Amp w/gain, 4" original speaker, Neutrik input jack, repurposed radio volume on/off and gain knobs, 9 volt battery box, repurposed cabinet pull carry handle. Dynamite comes in small packages! The original speakers in these intercoms were built really well and with better magnets than are used today so this little amp is LOUD and sounds awesome!
