Help! Building a Preamp. Thoughts?

Me and my girlfriend are building a preamp.


it will be based on this schematic:
T&L Publications • View topic - Mic Pre-Amp
(links to page 8 of thread)

If my memory serves, it will have two in's: one 'mic' and one 'line',
'mono/stereo' switch,
gain knob.

If you guys have practical ideas for improving this project, speak up.
Also, there is a limited budget, so keep that in mind.

cheers.

Why would you improve this? If you have decided on that project, do it. If you aren't sure it's for you, don't. Do you have some DIY experience? If not, try to stick to how it's now, because any changes would mean more trouble.

sure sure. good point. i was just throwing it out there so someone could chime in "don't use part [x], use part [y], it'll sound 400 times better!"

or something like that.

Good luck with this, let us know how it turns out.

I guess you already know how lucky you are to have a girlfriend who's interested in preamps, right?
