A Luthier friend asked me to make him a simple stereo computer amp. I used the basic circuit from the LM380 datasheet . He was to make a housing out of wood but I couldn't help myself producing this as an interim 'container'.
Sounds great with MP3 and with a preamp was adequate with a...
Thanks for the directions VeraCohr. I salute you.

Currently listening to Magma C1971. Awesome musicianship...
One things leads to another - this is especially true in electronics.
Inspired by Homer L Davidson who used a LM3909. Tragically I had to think on my feet due to it being discontinued. Homer used an ugly 90's plastic case for his - the wife was just as unimpressed with my effort...
So the amp needs a proper box and I have a penchant for hoarding scrap with a view to repurposing.
Title of this post has great meaning for me.
I like a pun. At the moment you can buy a 2nd hand looking new guitar (Road Worn)from the likes of Fender. All they do is scrape the paint a bit...

One thing I...

Please bear in mind I'm a beginner in electronics, have pudgy work hardened hands, two energetic young children that and a whole load of household chores competing for my attention.
I was never happy...
