LM386 Amp kit

My amp kit was under the tree this morning, along with a couple effects pedals. The distortion pedal was an early gift but I did manage to wait until Christmas morning to open the Flange pedal. I had a cigar box to put the amp in all ready. I've been looking into amp kits and this  14 Watt looks like fun.  http://vakits.com/14-watt-single-channel-audio-amplifier-kit-1344…See More

Dubl Handi Washboard - Leftie Hybrid Guitar/Bass Stereo Instrument

"Thanks Ted. I'll be picking up a wash board for a future build. I'll probably just do a 3 or 4 string. Thinking about adding a piezo to the washboard so it could be played also. "
