Firefly tubeamp for guitars
The Firefly tube-based amplifier for
electric guitars is entirely built by
me. It is an 1,5 watt amplifier with a nice
overdrive. There is an additional boost option
for extra overdrive. The circuit design
is by Doug Hammond and the circuit
board design is by John Calhoun. However,
I did some minor modifications to
the circuit, assembled the parts and built it
by myself. The cabinet is entirely designed
en built by me. For the furry look, I used
carpet. The sound is very clear.
Over the years I have also built guitar effects. For example the Flowerbooster, shown on the bottom left corner of the picture. The circuit designs float around on the internet, I simply apply them. The painting is designed and done by me. These effects have been used on live concerts and EP recordings.
