Cigar Box Electric Amplifiers !

  • In this workshop you will, again, by Jason's patient, hands on instruction, build your very own fully functional, cigar box amplifier to go with the spiffy and entertaining slide guitar you built.  Jason will guide you with attentive expertise.  Using a common cigar box as a substrate, you will construct an electic amplifier capable of reasonable volume to accompany you and your new carreer as a cigar box guitarist.  Each piece will be unique and hand structured with your own artistic style and flair.   We guarantee you’ll become addicted to this new endeavor and want to take it to the next level.  Good for anyone interested in basic mechanics, music, musical constructions and general creative endeavors.
