Don’t Recycle Electronics — Reuse Them!

By Chuckles

Well my family recently bought a new tv and replaced our old one, an old tube powered fossil. Since I am curious I figured I’d pop it open to take a look inside. Boy did I find some good stuff…Because the tv was so old everything wasn’t all condensed and tidy so I could snip parts off the circuit board. I found all sorts of weird caps and a bunch of perfectly usable transistors for pedals. As an added bonus I took out the speakers and hooked them up to a little amp I had laying around (Orange micro-crush pix, which has a dreadful speaker in it) and the tone was amazing! The small speaker made the clean channel a crunchy overdriven channel and the gain channel screamed. Lesson: Don’t just recycle those old electronics, reuse them.
