Who said speakers have to be boring black boxes?

We upcycle mason jars, soda cans and beer cans into great sounding portable speakers and guitar amplifiers. Amazing sounds and clever designs that travel with your phone and electric guitar.

DIY and Learning

Develop your maker skills as you build your own portable speaker. You can build the speaker using a Mason Jar, or get creative and build your own enclosure.

Compatible with all your devices

Play music from any device with a headphone jack (smart phones, iPods, tablets, laptops, etc).

Works as an electric guitar amplifier

Fun, portable practice amp for the couch, campfire, or road trip. Plug in and bust out those wicked solos.

Glass, wood & metal, no plastic

We love upcycling Mason jars and aluminum cans into speakers, rather than manufacturing new black boxes.

Humble Beginnings

Trash Amps began with a passion for innovation, concern for the environment, and the need for a portable speaker. Two friends built a guitar amp inside a soda can and quickly realized that you can put music in anything – and from that Trash Amps was born. With a creative blend of music, novelty, and sustainability, Trash Amps transforms everyday objects into portable speakers.
