Video: The Beer Can Guitar Amp

If you're anything like me, you've often sat around staring at a combo guitar amp and a can of beer trying to think of some ingenious way to combine them.

No?

Well, at least one other person did. DIY-amp maker Robert Brenne turned an empty Heineken can -- among any number of other fascinating objects -- into a working guitar amp. While its tone may be far from that of your favorite Hot Rod Deluxe, it doesn't sound bad, considering its components.
