My in-laws have bought me a Stagg strat style electric uke which I can get off them tomorrow.

In preparation, I dusted down my soldering iron, whipped over to Maplin and bought the components to make a mini amp to annoy the guys at work. Stole an empty fag packet out of a bin, raided an old FM radio for the speaker and et voila! One and a half hours and a blistered forefinger and thumb later I have a fully functional Smokey style amp.

Plugged an MP3 player into it a a very low volume and swipe me it worked!

Quite chuffed with myself as I havent done anything like this for about 25 years.

I've asked the wife to consider saving the pennies for a nice Koa wood for xmas. Perhaps and Oscar Schmidt like MusicTeacher2010 tends to use.
