Wrong place I know, BUT

By mindwave, 10 May, 2012

I couldnt find a "contact me" button anywhere.

Anyone know if the vendor accepts paypal?

I want to order a kit, and would LIKE to use ppl but dont HAVE to, I just hate to muck up his system by starting a sale to "see" and then cancel it if he doesnt.

thought this might be easier

sorry about the mispost

It's under "Support", but you are right, I should put an e-mail address in my About page.

Paypal: YES. You can pay with a paypal account or a credit card, but you have to select which one you will use when you get to the paypal site. In other words, if you want to pay with a credit card, you still select paypal as the thing you want to pay with.

Hope this helps. Feel free to mis-post any time.

Thanks for the reply,

I couldnt wait for my paypal account to clear, so I went ahead and ordered VIA CC.

VERY much waiting for this amp.

I hate to admit it, but I have tried 3 times to build LM386 based amps and comes up with nada each time.

I'm really psyched about being able to build my own amp and I know Im not stupid, however I am color blind, so the 1st time I know I got some values wrong (pretty bad when your asking your 5yo, what color is that, no the 3rd ring).

After watching your videos I really like the sound, and am curious to compare it to that of an LM386 (once I FINALLY get one running), as well as the artec all in one pot-amp board that Im going to try next.

Thanks for all your work.

Wow, I'm excited that you are excited!

If you are color blind, one thing that my color blind friends have found helpful is to have a multimeter handy, and to just measure every resistor before putting it in. Even the cheap digital meters are accurate enough for this.

If you're having a problem with making an LM386 amp, try a Smokey amp:


It's a super minimalist LM386 circuit.
