I'm in the process of doing this exact same thing, only I have a tube pre-amp.Hi,
I am planning to design a low end solid state guitar amplifier with distortion from scratch. Could someone guide me and help me with suggestions as to how to go about doing this and what books and references I need to use to complete this.
A great reference is a book called "microelectronic circuits" by sedra and smith.Thanks for the input guys. I have not yet decided on the specifics. I would prefer simple discrete components and basic ICs over chips which have an all in one functionality. Maybe a tube preamp and o/p power of 3-5W.
True that!Yep. Many small practice amps used a 1W LM386, which is loud enough to be annoying in a bedroom, and louder than a person singing and louder than an acoustic guitar.
But if you play alongside a real drummer you need 50W+ (and you need somewhere to practice!!).
