Ive made amps using other modules but what do the CBGITTY ones sound like especially when overdriven? A lot of solid state amps do not distort nicely. I have several tins and boxes crying out to be made into amp enclosures  and have not yet tried the above

Suggestion, go to the board where they build amps, and you will probably get answers.

Didn’t Shane demo one in a video? 

objectively I'd say they sound like a 9v transistor radio (similar electronics and speaker)

subjectively  I like the sound in clean and overdrive.
