LM386 tube amp

I recently built the Bike Tyre Speaker and it really needed a little LM386 mono amp to boost the sound, as I wanted to ‘Play It Loud’! My fascination with electronics started from dissecting old electrical equipment just to see what was inside… …beauty and intrigue… …what are those bits… …I started to learn how to put my own electronics together, building a LM386 amp as my second electronics project. It really is a great little circuit for beginners to try. For this project I wanted to capture some of that beauty within and what better than the vacuum tube as an embodiment of seeing the ‘working’ inside… …the glorification of the humble into an aesthetic beauty.”
