Question Guitar Amp help...I'm halfway there.


I'm making my first practice amp for guitar and I'm using the "BSIAB" distortion pedal for the pre-amp and "The Ruby" for the power section. The BSIAB is a bypass pedal so the amp will hopefully be like a 2-channel amp (Clean when BSIAB is disengaged and dirty when engaged).

Below are links to the schematics for each.


The Ruby

I already made the Ruby with the "bassman" mod and I'm using 8 AA batteries instead of a 9volt. Sounds pretty good through crappy speaker.

Now to my questions....

1. How do I connect the BSIAB with the Ruby for best results?
2. How do connect the power supply? How can I do this so that I keep the same power as if the AA batteries were connected to just the Ruby?
3. Any speaker recommendations? I have no idea what to use.

I apologize if this is not clear. I'm green and haven't yet learned the jargon.

Thanks in advance for any assistance that you can provide!
