I don't know where to post that, as we don't have a "pimp my toy amp" section ...
Dear moderators, feel free to move to "amplifiers" if it's more appropriate.
So, i've received this cute tiny amp yesterday ... and i couldn't resist, i've opened it today.
Some gutshots (from someone else) : http://www.bustedgear.com/repair_Fender ... ion_2.html
There is a single 4558 opamp as preamp (only one half used !
), and a 0.5W chipamp
, more or less similar to a LM386, as power amp. It's a twin, so there's two 2" louspeakers, in series.
The tone control is interesting, and very similar to the "contour" that i like so much in my old Valvestate : it goes from mid-cut/hi-boost to hi-cut, with mostly flat and slight hi-boost in between.
The clean sound is great for the size, and suprinsingly loud, but the distortion is quite harsh : it's indeed due to a pair of diodes to ground ! The classic tricks should apply : using LEDs as clipping diodes, maybe moving them to the feedback loop of the gain stage, using the second half of the opamp as a buffer before the tone control, etc.
Maybe i'll try to add a tube to it someday ...
