    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!
