    I am looking for a simple amplification circuit I can build into my new Bass Guitar kit,
    It doesn't have much room in the electronics pack so it can't be very large. It doesn't have to be stereo, battery power a plus, 1.5v aaa would be incredible!

    Any ideas? :rolleyes:

    hi there

    are you wanting the amplifier to go to a speaker ?

    what sort of power level out do you want ? 0.5W, 1W 10W ????

    you are not going to get any reasonable operation with a 1.5V battery

    There's not much room inside a bass guitar, even if you hollow out more of the wood. You might squeeze a headphone amplifier in there, running off some Lithium cells, but not a speaker amplifier (unless you provide power externally).

    If you want a practice system, it's possible to build a headphone amplifier into a pair of headphones (you need headphones with some air space inside them) so you can plug your headphones straight into the bass.
