CBG home made amp.

I have acquired a couple of nice wine bottle presentation boxes that I intend to use to make a foot stomp and an amp. Any advice on where to look for home made amp "kits" in the UK ?, looked on line and kit forms seem to be from the US.

hello folks, just to say ive not disappeared. i just have numerous fiscal difficulties here. to be honest, if i had a million £££s i would be dangerous.

anywhoo, im around in spirit :)

Just found something at Lidl called a Crimping Plier Set. For me it's a great timesaver for stripping wire for CBG's and amps. It will strip really thin insulated wire; I currently use 24SWG.

Only £9.99 while stocks last

OK guys and gals..the initial batch of Boxstock "Early Bird" tickets are now sold out. Regular price tickets available from the venue - http://www.wolvescivic.co.uk/-/show-details/103669/boxstock-cigar-b...

There are still places available if you want to sell your wares...£30 for a stall, including free evening ticket. If you fancy playing the daytime open mic session, just message me.

Just done a practice with the Ace Of Spades slide, a bit looser than I normally use but plays and sounds fantastic! Suggest you all but Greggs other slides!

That was me who bought the Ace Of Spades slide so I'll let you know how I find it!
