The goal of this project is to learn more about the circuity involved in audio gear, specifically in microphone preamplifiers. I will be researching preamp designs and building my own. My end goal is to have a functional preamp that I can use in real-life scenarios.

In order to accomplish this, I will likely build multiple versions before I find one that works reliably. I will consult with coworkers and family who know more about circuity and electrical theory than I do to learn how to best go about designing my project. I will order individual components from sites online, as well as buying what I can at local shops. This particular project will require the ability to read schematics as well as the ability to solder. The idea stuck out to me because I have always been naturally curious about how things work, and this will afford me the opportunity to dive into the inner workings of gear I often take for granted.
