I bought the C.B. Gitty amp kit... https://www.cbgitty.com/amplifier-kits-parts/great-2-5-watt-parts-o...
I'm very disappointed with it. It has a terribly shrill sound with all treble and no base. There is a pot to adjust the gain but nothing to adjust the tone. Does anyone have any clue if you can add a tone pot to this kit?
For about 2/3 the price, I could have bought another Honeytone amp and just tore the parts out and installed them in cigar box. It would have more volume, better overdrive and a sound knob.
Shane Speal has a video here somewhere of the preamp made pedal style. These preamps are very inexpensive.
another simple lil trick , get a new box , cut a hole out about half as small as the speaker . mount the speaker inverted on the outside of the box (blowing in ). it then acts as a bass box , and adds a much bigger/ warmer sound . drill a few small sound holes if needed .. just a couple like 2 or 3 tuner size holes . .
you will be surprisingly impressed..
Somewhere on here and/or facebook is a video Shane did building a gitty amp and he used 2 speakers and really sang the praises of that mod.
So I added an EQ-7545R pre-amp to the Gitty amp kit and it sounds great! You can read on another post how I wired the two together... http://www.cigarboxnation.com/forum/topics/gitty-amp-kit-and-pre-amp
