I built a little practice amp for a friend's kid with a 386, and damn that thing is loud. I'm serious. Give it a decent cabinet, efficient speaker, solid power (I used 8 AA's) and a fuzzbox, and you'll have the neighbours complaining very quickly (make sure to heat sink it).
If you want to run it off a 9v battery, though, I think you'll have to be content with modest power. There is only so much current that even the best 9v battery can deliver.
Trust me, if there was a way to have a *loud*, powerful, clean practice amp that ran off a 9v, you'd see them everywhere. But you don't, do you?
