Cigar Box Amplifier built by Dennis Menard. A lot like a Pignose. But it has an additional control to the right that'll give you more gain. The input is buffered. So, it loves have a Tube Screamer or a Distortion box of your choice in front of it.
Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
Via Mr. Ted Crocker. He invited me on Facebook!!
What instruments are you building or playing?
I play 2 6 String Cigar Box Guitars made by Carl Johnson out of Lowell,MA. They both have Mighty Mite Strat-Style Necks with the Skunk Stripe On The Back and Rosewood Fingerboards. Both have Grover Vintage Style Kluson Tuners. Both Have Telecaster Style Bridges with a GFS Lil' Puncher Rail Style Humbucker. They Both Have A Single Volume and Tone Knob. One of them does have a push-pull on the tone control for splitting the Coil to get those Single Coil Sounds. The other guitar doesn't and is mostly set up for slide. I have a Yamaha Bass Guitar and a Larrivee Acoustic Guitar. Oh by the way, I'm left-handed. So, all my guitars are lefty too.
