I am so appreciative of your circuit. Thanks for designing something that truly sounds good while being easy to build. The ubiquitous '386 designs, while simple, sound terrible and I don't understand why others aren't more interested in finding newer more flexible, inexpensive, better sounding, and easy to build designs like yours. I built one Stella and after playing through it for a week, I ordered another so I'll have it handy when I find that "perfect enclosure". Am finding myself playing more through the Stella now than my primary amp. A couple of things I can suggest that may help other builders with their Stella build...
1) publish the thread length for the pots and the jacks - I had to do some creative Dremel work on the wooden cigar box I had because the walls were too thick to allow the threads to stick through to the other side. The threads on the supplied parts will probably work nicely on cardboard cigar boxes but are more challenging on wooden boxes - no showstoppers for sure but letting buyers know in advance will certainly help.
2) list sources of speakers on your web site - I had not bought a speaker in years - I thought you could go down to your local electronics store like I did as a kid 30 years ago and buy a single decent speaker - no such luck. I had a mild panic attack and was wondering what I was going to do for a speaker. I then saw your mounting speakers pages and saw what you used - then I picked up a BRS40 for 8 bucks (plus tax and shipping) on amazon.com. Works great!
3) tell us a bit more about how to use the hacks leads. I sense there is more I can do with the Stella but not much documented beyond the amp.
Overall, you've created a surefire winner. Thanks again for this gift!
