Now we've seen everything part 343: The BalvenAmp

Not too drunk to overdrive...
Here at MusicRadar, we love DIY guitar amplifiers. A recent favourite that springs to mind is this amplifier housed in a coconut shell.
Imagine our glee when we found the BalvenAmp. Made from an old box that originally contained a nice 12-year-old single malt whisky, the amplifier’s maker declares that “there's a lot of low-end distortion, but at low volumes the treble is actually quite clear.”
The last time we drank a bottle of Scotch, it’s fair to say that there was plenty of low-end distortion the following morning.
It's not big or clever kids, and please remember that MusicRadar doesn't endorse hedonistic behaviour of any kind. Honestly.
