Description Extended Information
This is a complete cigar box amp KIT, and includes all of the parts you'll need to build your own 2.5-watt amplifier! The box is a beautiful all-wood Oliva G cigar box, and the kit includes some nice decorative shiny nickel box corners (with matching screws) to help dress it up. The main listing photo shows an example of the amplifier that can be built with this kit.

The "guts" of this amp kit is a 2.5 watt amp board, which really puts out some nice sound considering its size and input power. The amp board comes with 1-foot wire leads pre-soldered to the key connection points, to eliminate some of the more fiddly bits of assembly for you. This kit includes a four-page how-to sheet that shows wiring diagrams and covers some key points about wiring and assembly. Only basic soldering skills, and an ability to read simple wiring diagrams, are required to assemble this kit!
  • The amp board also has an onboard Tone Trim Pot, adjustable with a Philips screwdriver , which allows for fine-tuning the tone from "clean" to "crunchy". We always crank the tone all the way up before shipping our own amplifiers, so that they produce the loudest, crunchiest tone - because that's what we think sounds best with a CBG! For those of you who are interested in tweaking your CB amp, and aren't scared of a soldering iron, the amp board also provides connection points for an output jack and headphones jack as well!
  • You can also add a panel-mount gain pot to this circuit, if you aren't afraid of a little soldering. The video below shows how. Please note that you can damage/ruin your amp board doing this and we do not warranty any damage caused by following these steps!
