Hi Gary, I'm not sure if you have built an amp, so the first I use LM386 chips. Build a Smokey amp first schematics are on google. then a little gen and then a Ruby. The Little gem is a smokey with a gain control and a Ruby has a gain and volume. I'm not the guy to learn from I don't use transistors just watch the heat if they run hot somethings wrong.
