A good few years ago or shall we say ‘many years ago’ I built a very special guitar amplifier:
LeBirné – the ODDIST
You think it’s small? It is small. You think it’s quiet? It screams! This amp has the power of a much bigger amplifier. There is no comparison to any of the small amplifiers you get in the shops.
This thing is handmade with love to the detail. Powered with a 10 watts power amp with overdrive circuit. Preamp section with distortion. Active bass and treble control. Build for electric guitar. Also suitable for acoustic guitar (extended frequency range when treble is past 12 o’clock) or blues harp.
I cannot really recall how many I actually built. And I don’t know if I should build them again. Would you want one? Price would be something around 350 in Swiss Francs. Should I get enough offers I could set up another batch. I won’t promise though. Let’s see.
Here some pictures that show a bit more in detail.
Here’s a picture of my prototypes. The one in front is version 2 of the very first one ever built.
