James repurposed preamp box
"Just finished your little no-solder kit and I've put it in an old gramophone control box I found at a junk shop (sorry, vintage shop!). I've used a small speaker from an old PC speaker, which sounds nowhere near as good as the one you supplied with the kit but does fit in this little tin. The only change I made was to add a bezel to the LED and threaded some steel nuts onto the plastic jack sockets!"

Graham's ever-changing NoSo One!
"I put one together on Sunday morning in just over an hour. I'm very pleased to say it worked well first time! Just as a temporary measure to keep everything together I have built it into a five inch cardboard tube. Photos attached. It's just held together with Gaffa tape for now."

   

"Here are some photos of my latest NoSo One built into some plumbing fittings from B&Q. As you can see, I've sprayed it so it doesn't look so lavatorial! On my previous effort I fitted a switch so I can turn off the distortion. My Gibson (it's an ES 347) has very hot pickups so most of the time I don't want any distortion. Sounds ok with my Strat copy though! I've also fitted a Jensen Chicago 5-30 (MOD) 5" speaker. I must move the LED to the outside as well. I'll keep you informed of any further developments."

   

"I've had a bit of a fiddle with the drain pipe speaker enclosure! I realised that the part that I'd attached the amp and controls to would fit directly to the bit with the speaker in! Looks better (I think?) and keeps the whole thing small. It also sounds better."

   
   

"I've changed it yet again! I've done away with the extra boost altogether. I think it sounds much better as the basic model. As you can see, I've put the amp in a plastic case I had hanging around from work. So I've got a sort of cab and amp type arrangement."

Adam's amp-in-a-beer-can build
"I recently purchased a NoSo one Plus kit from you and planned to build it into a beer keg to make a really interesting looking amp. I want to say the kit is brilliant. A really easy way to put together an amp that sounds surprisingly good. It gives a really bluesy grungy tone that sounds great. I have attached some pictures in case you are interested. It really fits with the image of my homemade biscuit tin guitar."
