Learn How To Build Guitar Amps

As I’m building a wee pocket portable guitar amp for my son Jesse, I started researching for ideas and designs. Of course Instructables is a great place to start.

This is where I found the Portable Ruby Amp


The Ruby Amp and its variants can be found on this page along with formulas and reasons why certain componets are used. https://www.electrosmash.com/1wamp
