im not completely set in stone on the 50C5's, i have other choices just thought it would be nice to experiment with them. This will only be a small practice amp though, it will be a combo with an 8" speaker.
As for size of the room, I currently use SET EL84 amp in my hifi and it is more than loud enough. A friend brought round one of those little marshall 1W amps with the 12AU7 PP output stage for her to try out and even that was uncomfortably loud with the violin running through it.

Any simple DIY violin amplifier around you can make with op-amp's?

You can only make preamps with opamps, although you can use them in the front end of some power amps (but it seems fairly pointless to do so).

How much clean headroom do you want, and how loud do you want to be when you hit overdrive? A 5F1 Champ - or 5F2A with tone control - might be all you need. Choose an efficient speaker if you're more interested in clean volume.

for the same amount of money you'd spend building one, you can purchase this one:

check out the specs. pretty impressive.

very flexible and can be used in a variety of situations. comes in different colors as well if that matters.
