Little speaker cabinets to go with my Orange Micro Terror amp head. It creates a great overdriven sound for harmonica. Parts list: 120 watt peak (20watt nominal)/full range/4" speaker from Pioneer...small piece of plywood fit inside for speaker mount...upholstery nails to hold the plywood in place...one gallon tin coffee or vegetable cans... a 1/4 mono jack...an old leather belt/rivets/fender washers for the handle.

The next version will have a small 1-2 watt amp inside.

So sometimes it is better to do a tear down before buying parts...I bought caliper rebuild kits for my brake calipers, tools to hone the cylinders, and new brake lines only to find that the cylinders were so pitted with rust they were beyond a "hone/new seal " rebuild...guess there are some factory rebuilt brake calipers in my future!
