Guitar pre-amplifier to amplify to line level

Recommended Posts

would the KEMO #M40 pre-amplifier module be ok to amplify a guitar output to line level so i can play my guitar thru a normal amplifier when I dont have access to a proper guitar amp.

here is the link for it:


and this is how i figured i should wire it, the guitar input being a 1/4" jack and the outputs being dual RCA's

A guitar pickup has an output level far higher than a magnetic phono cartridge.

A phono preamp for a magnetic cartridge boosts the bass frequencies because the bass is reduced when a record is cut. Then the phono preamp is easily overloaded at bass frequencies.

Maybe an overloaded phono preamp make lots of fuzz when fed from a guitar pickup.
