DIY Kit Boombox
DIY Kit Boombox
This DIY kit boombox is an art and music hybrid experience device. The fully customizable speaker allows lovers of the arts to exhibit visual expression on a beautiful-sounding boombox that starts conversations anywhere. When you show up with this head-turning boombox and people ask "Did you make that?" ... you might say "Yes I did! And so can you!"
The build process can be accomplished in a weekend with simple hand tools. It takes between 4 and 8 hours total of work time depending on your speed. Full instructional PDFs and videos are included to walk you through all steps of the build process.
Your songs will drop jaws anywhere you want to bring music to life. New friendships will spark for the love of music. This original invention is an instrument of sound called a "MOJOFESTO" – meaning magic celebration. Six years of lovingly prototyping handmade boomboxes from artistic materials has finally arrived at this fully sensational listening experience.
Once you add your twist to the DIY boombox, by painting, collaging, branding or otherwise customizing the surface, you will have made a one-of-a-kind collectable boombox.
It features a body, back and border of tempered hardboard that you paint, and a Cedar face, wet sanded and hand rubbed in fine Tung Oil varnish, UV-resistant Urethane, and Carnuba wax blend for a durable natural finish that can be maintained for decades of satin beauty. Its bluetooth or auxiliary input is amplified at 200 Watts for 8-10 hours of portable play by its Lithium Ion battery. Musicians and music lovers alike will feel the muse represented in lifelike sound presence.
The MOJOFESTO A3-Kit is built on a wooden frame designed to open up with a screwdriver. You are invited to look inside and see how it is built. Repairs and upgrades can be done in the field. No more disposable plastic bluetooth speakers are needed in your repertoire or in the landfill. Much like you expect a musical instrument to last a lifetime, you can count on a MOJOFESTO to be repairable and playing for many many years.
This unique musical joy device says we are ready to rock; we want to to jam out loud in real places with real people; we love amazing sound, real talk and open communities; we welcome sharing new and old music and ideas. By launching the MOJOFESTO DIY kit series, MakeBoomboxes is sharing the joy of making boomboxes, and setting the stage for an upcoming custom boombox shop.
