As per the title I've started work on a new pre to match my >power amp<.
The purpose of the thread is threefold
1] To keep a record of the project.
2] To perhaps encourage others to have a bash at an easy DIY project (*)
3] To perhaps get some input as the project progresses
(*) I was only motivated to get into DIYing my own kit after reading threads in this section.
Progress will be steady if not downright slow at times as I have other demands on my time at the moment in the form of some ongoing renovations around the house and a GoldWing based Cafe Racer project bike.
