Even as kids, Adam Wegner and Ron Sloat loved inventing things, most of which didn't work out exactly as planned. As adults, they started combining their passions for engineering, design, art, and music by making amplifiers out of upcycled materials. Besides wanting to make a cool product, Adam and Ron have always enjoyed the intersection of education and life. They began visiting schools to encourage kids towards sustainability, music, engineering, and education as a whole. "When you connect education with something kids already view as 'cool,' education becomes cool by association. If you can show kids the end goal of what they're learning now, you just might set them on track to start their own successful companies down the road," says Adam.

I gave this to my boyfriend for his birthday. He loves it because he can plug in his guitar for rehearsal/practice when he doesn't have his large amp handy and it still sounds great, especially for songwriting and jamming around. It also sounds great hooked up to an ipod or whatever, and can carry sound into other rooms pretty well.

My only negative comments are that the cord the picture shows on the website isn't what you get, as mine came with a plain white cord. Also, batteries seem to run it through pretty fast, and the sound gets pretty distorted when they need to be changed or if the volume is too loud, but overall is good for everyday use around the house or outside. Great gift!

Great working little product ad has a great sound. The only big negative is the chord was shown as a cool colored blue spiral coiled chord making it look more like a guitar amp chord. When delivered the chord is a cheap white straight white chord. The kind that are a dime a dozen anywhere on low cost players which greatly detracted from the looks. It works just fine but really reduced the cool funky guitar amplifier factor completely, which is sad because it's cool funkiness is this objects primary draw. It probably deserves higher than a 3 maybe 3.5 or 3.75 but the chord really damaged the cosmetic appeal and honstly why else would you buy this other hn it looked cool

    Comments about UncommonGoods Mason Jar Speaker & Amplifier:

    It was the hit of my son's birthday party. Guests, some of whom are professional ( well, weekend professional) musicians, all were impressed. We enjoyed hooking it to a guitar, a ukulele, a cell phone and an MP3 player. My son believes he can adapt it to the cigar box guitar he is constructing.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The company went to extraordinary lengths to make certain I received the speaker before my son's birthday.

                  I bought this as a gift for my sister for her graduation. She loves music and singing and this gift was perfect. She's been in need of a new speaker for years now, and when I saw this stylish little mason jar I knew she would love it. She appreciates the high quality sound it produces as well as the surprising level of volume it can reach. As a tip, you can also customize the look of it by placing a decorative piece of paper inside the jar. Nifty little jar that will get much use in the future!
