What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
The tonal qualities of different cigar boxes. The thickness of the wood and the grain length and size give different tones. I built an all tube 12 volt cigar box amp and will be building 10 more soon I make my own circuit boards and my designs are unique. I may have to go with a hybrid design if they don't prove to be loud enough, but I'm toying with ways to use more powerful tubes too.
