DIY Chime Amp Head (to commemorate 4K Subs)

It's been a long time since I made something to commemorate a milestone for the channel. Here is my 4K Chime Amp. It's a DIY kit I bought from diyguitarpedals.com.au and assembled inside a tiny craft box.

Hey Doug. Unfortunately, this is the only one I've found. I don't doubt there are more out there but this one definitely stands out.

Comment by Doug Thorsvik on Thursday

These kits are very cool. Are you aware of any small clean amp kits where you don’t have to chase down all the components. All of the ones I have seen seem to focus on distortion and without it the volume is severely compromised.

Comment by Poorness Studios on Wednesday

Thanks Doug. You understood correctly. You have to source the components separately from the company who makes the PCB. Most of their kits are available with or without the components. I presume they have trouble getting the IC in quantity since it's a bit rare.

This project was compelling Kale! A simple clean amp! Did I understand you right that I can’t get all the components I need from the company that sells the amp board?

Thanks BrianQ. I thought the chip sounded familiar. Apparently they've gotten harder to find.

Comment by BrianQ. on Wednesday

Nice, this is actually a modified Punch amp. FYI, the LM7052 chip is what’s used in the Honeytone amp, the LM7240 is what’s being used these days though? You got plenty of subs in a short time, kudos to you :)
