Portable Guitar Amp

Personal Project, Product-Interaction Design

I created a portable guitar amp with character. The amp is a stool that is battery powered for jamming with friends anywhere, and folds up for easy transportation.


The speaker rotates around a rod to allow the amp to be stored or transported.

The base forms a lided box to house guitar gear.

Design + Build

I sketched multiple designs and evaluated different features for the amp with respect to usability. I refined the final design in SolidWorks.


I enjoyed learning new fabrication techniques while building the amp and upholstering both the pleather seat cushion and the cloth speaker cover.


Soldering the circuitry together was a refreshing challenge.
