Enjoy playing your unplugged electric guitar without an amp


You’ve probably seen analog speakers for phones, and tablets that amplify sound not by electronic speakers, but by routing sound waves through a plastic funnel type device. Now you can do the same thing for your electric guitar. The DelSonix clip on guitar amplifier is a specially designed “speaker” for your electric guitar that doesn’t require cords, batteries or power to amplify sound. The device is made up of a wooden post that clips to the guitar’s headstock, and a thin plastic cone that takes the sound vibrations from the wooden post and projects the sounds waves out like a speaker allowing an unplugged electric guitar sound similar to an acoustic guitar. The DelSonix clip on guitar amplifier looks a little goofy, but it looks like a less bulky alternative to an amp – especially for practice sessions. You can buy the DelSonix clip on guitar amplifier for $34 CAD ($24.54 US) through delsonix.ca

    Now musicians can know what a pet with the “radar dish” feels like.

    Interesting! I haven’t seen these before. Will this work as a sail when I’m canoeing?
