The standard version is equipped with 2x ECC83 preamp tubes, 1x Input High / Low switchable, Volume, Gain, Gain Boost, Treble, Middle and Bass controls and a 4/8/16 Ohm Speaker Out as well as a Line Out! The possibility of a powerreducion is by switch on the back of the amp also standard.For the housing I take am "Middle Thick Fiber Plate", after waxing it looks like leather. Look for further pics of the Amp at my side.

I see you got a five string banjo. My CBG got a Banjo neck too!

Hi Brian,

Nice builds you have done. I've been building cigar box guitars for a few years, along with some six string electrics, lap steels, a few bass guitars, strum sticks, and now I am sort of obsessed with building tenor guitars with solid bodies. There are a couple other cbg builders here in NS that I know of. One is Darren Brown, in Canning. He was on the Dragon's Den show a couple years ago. And Mike Breen, in Halifax.

Cheers, great to connect with you.

Album Notes
Cigar Box Guitar and classical music met again after 150 years!

In the middle of XIX century there were musicians who classical pieces performed on homemade instruments such as Cigar Box Guitar. But, unfortunately, there are no records of these unique 
performances did not survive. How do sounds classical music of the Renaissance on cigar box guitar? 

"Das Wohltemperirte Cigar Box Guitar" Album ( translation: Well-Tempered sigar box guitar ) was recorded in a home studio by Eugene Nemov. 

The list of works you will see all the familiar songs and names of composers such as Franz Shubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Albinoni and names of familiar music lovers Renaissance: Pascal Bouquet and Francesco da Milano.

Pascal Bouquet - French lutenist, he lived in XV-th century. Pascal Bouquet composed many excellent works for lute and baroque guitar. Musical notations this musician survived to this day. "Brande des Hermites" and "Volte Praetorius" - it's two works from the collection of popular dances of France, Pascal Bouquet written specifically for learning to play the lute. 

Francesco Canova da Milano (Italian Francesco Canova da Milano) - Italian Renaissance lute, one of the major European composers XVI veka.Franchesko Canova da Milano is one of the best composers of lute music, and possibly greatest lute virtuoso of all time. His work, and the amazing beauty of a consistently high level, and are often performed today. 

Just the album includes two copyright works Eugene Nemov - "French dance" and "English dance". They are written in a popular style of lute music of the Renaissance .

All works have been performed at 3-string classic guitars from cigar boxes, made by Eugene Nemov. Description and images of these instruments You can see on the site www.cigarboxguitars.ru and personal Evgeny Nemov page on the www.cigarboxnation.com ;

Enjoy!

Brian, how did you hollow out the antler? I have a few chunks of antler dog ches that would be awesome slides if I could figure out a sensible way of boring them out....
