Mini Portable Guitar Ampls

This small amplifier was intended to be used in conjunction with an electric guitar to do some low power monitoring, mainly for practice, either via an incorporated small loudspeaker or headphones. The complete circuit, loudspeaker, batteries, input and output jacks can be encased in a small box having the dimensions of a packet of cigarettes, or it could be fitted also into a real packet of cigarettes like some ready-made units available on the market. This design can be used in three different ways: Max output power: 1.5W @ 9V supply - 8 Ohm load; 60mW @ 3V supply - 8 Ohm load Frequency response: Flat from 20Hz to 20kHz Total harmonic distortion @ 100mW output: 0.2% Max input voltage @ 3V supply: 8mV RMS Minimum input voltage for Fuzz-box operation: 18mV RMS @ 3V supply Current consumption @ 400mW and 9V supply: 200mA Current consumption @ 250mW and 9V supply: 150mA Current consumption @ 60mW and 3V supply: 80mA Quiescent current consumption: 6mA @ 9V, 4mA @ 3V supply Fuzz-box current consum…
