Hi all, Here in the good ol' u.k. we have a chain of electronic component suppliers called "Maplin". Whilst skimming through their catalogue I found this: "SC63T Guitar/Bass Preamp" Basically it's a Complete 15 pin module that only needs external connections to Pots,jacks,power,switches etc. Soooo.....I bought one. It'll run on any voltage between 9 and 18 volts. I housed the whole lot in a plastic box about the size of a small paperback book (with a belt clip). You get: Master volume control 3 band eq Bright/Deep switch Hi/Low sensitivity input(s) Sound good.......You Bet! This thing really rocks! How much? £7.99 for the module (about 11 dollars)!!!! About another £12 or so for the hardware (Jacks,pots,switches,box etc) I'll post a jpeg of the completed one that I built as soon as I can figure out my way round the digital camera!
