2011 friend request - I guess I haven't been on here in a while...

Ugh! Sorry about how messy that last post was. I'm still trying to figure out how to use all of this! lol

Hey Mungo... I just read where you wrote...

"Michael;

 I chased after these things for a while, then ended up buying something like this:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Value-Choice-TDA2030A-Amplifier-Amp-board-DI...

 

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/PK1-TDA2030A-Audio-Amplifier-Amp-Board-DIY-K...

 

In the end it was easy and cost about right, however if you are bound and determined to learn about electronics this will not do it, basically a hook it up to a speaker, add a box and some knobs and you are done like dinner.

                 Cheers Ron."

Is there any chance you can post a picture of how you wired them up into a CigarBoxAmp? I've been having trouble getting one made, and if this helps, I think I'm going to go this route. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

thank you sir for your comment about the tri-cone sound check vid--yes i search for different tones and usually find them.so the sound is what i look for in a progress build.

The possibilities are endless.

EAD tune DAD

ADg tune GDg

Dgb tune Df#a

gbe tune gbd

How do you want to tune is the question? Enjoy, Keni Lee

Hey Ron

It's all about the enjoyment of making it..I find.

I have access to a nice workshop too and have friends with lathes so can do some very rudimentary metal work . Hence the bit of brass as the bridge.

Look forward to seeing / hearing your output soon

All the best
Mark

Thank you Ron for your interest and support. The auctions recently ended. They are relisted now.

Thank you Ron for your interest. Do you know I currently offer, free 4 string CBG lessons here on my group? If you would like to get a better understanding, I would suggest CD 1 and CD 2. Although they are geared for a 6 string, you will quickly see how it is the application of open tuning that makes it easy to alter these lessons from Open D 6 string (DADf#ad) to 4 string (Df#ad) on CD 1 and complimenting the free lessons nicely from Open G 6 string (DGDgbd) to 4 string (Dgbd) on CD 2. The strings on the guitar are the same, you just change the tuning. In addition, if you build a 6 string CBG someday, you will be good to go too. Please feel free to write if you have further questions. Enjoy, Keni Lee
