Cigar Humidor Amp
Cigar Box amps are fun and easy to build, but they just don't have enough substance to be a serious six string guitar amp. I wanted to build something small that would still give you real tone and volume.
I started with a beautiful cigar humidor with a marvelous burled wood finish. I added a latch to the bottom which keeps it airtight, but lets you easily change the batteries. It has a 5 watt solid state amp powered by 8 AA batteries. The 8" speaker coupled with the overall heftiness of the box gives it an amazingly rich tone and loudness for such a small, portable, battery powered amp..
