Watch the video below to learn more about the Mighty Flea battery guitar amp Its creator explains more about the inspiration behind the battery guitar amp.
This year I designed a battery powered guitar amplifier, which I call The Mighty Flea. All my guitar playing friends loved it when I showed it to them. So, I ran a Kickstarter project to raise money to produce the first batch. We got to 25% funding in a few hours, and a prestigious “Project We Love” badge – but eventually, not enough people bought and the project did not fund.
But, a lot of people were interested, and I got to them. I realised that the idea is still a very good one, it just needs a bit more work. I can make “The Flea” an even better amplifier, and that’s what I am doing. But I need your help. Building prototype hardware costs money, but, right now, I am not able to meet those costs. (I already spent several thousand to build the existing prototype.) So – I am asking you to help me out with these costs.
If you are looking to buy a Mighty Flea amp for yourself (this should be next spring when I am ready to re-launch), the money I receive from you now can be deducted from your payment then.
