Default Bass guitar amp

Hello

I'm in the process of building a tube based bass guitar preamp and am happy with that progress.

I would like to use a Class D power amp, are there any considerations that i need to be aware of when using Class D for this purpose?

Also, any recommendations on kits fit for purpose would be useful.

Look forward to hearing from someone.

kind rgds

Unlike guitar amps, there's not much special about the power section of a bass amp. Indeed, quite a few bass players use a power amp designed for PA to drive their rigs.

I'm just about to dive into a similar project, except I'm designing a JFET-based preamp.

There's a small bass amplification firm here in the Netherlands that makes bass amps using UcD: http://www.hevos.nl/cms/en/?Products%A0:Amplifiers
