The Little Rebel, designed by Michael Massberg, is a small, Amp, featuring a 2 LM386N-3 power amp, bringing 2W power to the speaker. It is mainly designed for overdriven rock sounds. It can use any speaker with at least 4 Ohm impedance.

The kit contains everything you need, knobs and enclosure are not included.

The pots can be mounted in different ways, in the wiring layout this is explained.

Different enclosures can be used, as long as it is big enough for the 13,7 x 4,5cm pcb. Hammond 1444-14 is good for mounting the pots on the front, a DD enclosure is great for mounting the pots on the top, to use the amp on the effect board.For power supply just use a normal 9V DC supply, like it is used for effect pedals, too.

5 from 5 Very nice product

I bought the vertical version of the Little Rebel amp. Everything perfectly OK, works like a beauty! With a bit of care, it fits inside a JJ type metal enclosure.

5 from 5 Awesome!

Amazing small amp, I tried it with differents cabinets and guitars and it always sound really cool for a small non tube amp. It respond really well to the playing dynamic.

5 from 5 Little rebel 2W amp

This is the second time Im buying the rebel and I do like it, either for the DIY side as well as for the capabilities for setting different sounds and its practical use, small dimensions easy to transport and good response to use with pedals.
Its a little great amp to build, study and play.
I make string instruments with recycled materials, I use this amp to play along with my instruments in faires and workshops. Couple of friends of mine are professional musicians, they really liked the distortion sounds. Ive used a bamboo box as enclosure, the speaker is a Fender 600 Champion 6,5 inches.

4 from 5 Nice little amp

Good sound if compared to the very low price, I used this kit to replace the non-functioning circuit of a tiny guitar pack amplifier.
Sounds a lot better with an external 12 inches speaker of course.

4 from 5 Good product

I had fun assembly this kit. It is recommended for beginners, has all the components marked with the value and you cannot make mistakes. Sound good, has nice distortion and it is loud for only 2 watts.

Good product!
