Converting a cassette player/radio--where do I start?

Hi! I bought an old cassette player/radio at an estate sale (really cheap!) and I'm wondering where/how I start in converting it into a guit amp. I've seen a few vids of some Australian (?) cat doing it, and he took out the magnetic head that reads the tapes.  I've also read one can simply solder the positive to the head.I'm open to any advice on how I start this undertaking.Thanks!See More

Just got a radio/cassette player--My next move--HELP!!

Hi!I just bought a radio/cassette tape player at an estate sale.  $1.50, half-off from $3.00.  I want to convert it into an amp.  I've watched some vids that showed the process, and it looks pretty easy.  (And the filthy-dirty-nasty sound is AWESOME!)  There are lots of vids of a guy--in Australia?--who has done several. I've excited but tentative.  What do I do first?  How do I start?  I have a new soldering iron and some resin core solder.  I've seen this (Aussie?) guy take the tape-reading…See More

Radios turned Guitar Amps

This is the group for Lo-Watt Rock & Blues.Here is the place to post photos and information on how to convert vintage electronics into awesome sounding and really cool guitar amps.there are several directions you can go in this area of amplification, you can hack and convert the existing electronics,(provided the radio still works.)Or if you have a broken radio, CBG Gitty Amp kits are a great way for the novice to join in. You can convert any old radio  nifty 1950's and 60's radio bodies…See More

They look cool, they sound cool, especially in the blues, and it's a lot of fun to make music from something I made out of re-purposed materials.
