The Black Box

The Black Box is not an instrument by itself, but a small mixing amplifier with three line inputs and a generous gain control. The preamp section of the amp is built around a C-MOS 4069 hex inverter, giving a valve-like overdrive. A 2" 10 watt speaker is driven by a 10 watt amplifier.

 

The Black Box is still circuit bent, however, as the power supply is actually a rechargeable power pack taken from a Chinese-manufactured RC car.
