    46 was just it poss to get an amp know one that could handle a guitar and maybe a keyboard. I believe solid state amps are built for this. Got couple of schematics but have doubts regarding the availability of the freakin ICs.

    Lemme know man... thanks for your help mate.............cheers

    i've never bothered with solid state amps. not my scene. most TDA ics should be readily available. i might build a solid state gainclone as a hi-fi/monitor amp... the LM3875 and 3886 are available too, but make sure you spend a little bit extra and buy the real thing - there are a lot of fakes on the market.

    vegakit sells a 100W "electric guitar amplifier" kit for some 700 bucks. add another 300 for a transformer. i'm sure it sounds like shit (its probably an old kustom or something), but maybe you can run it clean.

    if you're asking me i i would build one for you - sorry, have no experience whatsoever with solid state amps to date, and i have way too many projects to finish right now. and it would be a LOT more expensive than buying a bog-standard stranger or kustom.

    don't know about putting 5 FX in one box. i hope you don't plan to step on it if you're thinking of using thin sheet metal. i'm actually planning to do something similar - 7-8 different really, really horrible fuzz effects, feedback loop and a bunch of LFOs all in parallel as a desktop solid state noise processor. but yeah, it's not going to be stepped on (i may relay control it though) and it's just an experiment as such.

    one warning. putting 5 FX in one box can get really confusing with the wiring, though it's really not. also, make sure you have a good power supply filtering going. build in a dedicated power supply with about 750mA output, at best. it'S a lot more than you need, but you will reduce the ripple greatly.
