Any recommendations for a Bass headphone amp?
« on: July 10, 2019, 02:26:24 PM »
My brothers birthday is coming up in August and he asked me some time ago, if I could build him a headphone amp for his bass.

Do you have any recommendations or is any headphone amplifier doing the trick? Any suggestions are welcome, also strip- or veroboard is fine for me.
thanks,
Felix

Iíve built them from vero a couple of times both for myself and another bass player. A good set of headphones will really make the difference.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

There is one here. I built a headphone amp into a 2 channel mixer for a friend that wanted to plug audio into one channel so that he could learn songs. Turned out pretty neat.
