I was just thinking - it happens every once in a while - and I possibly just invented the greatest thing ever. Like Homer simpsons electric hammer. How cool would it be if you had a sort of adapter - very small - maybe 3" x 1" - that you could plug into the output jack of your guitar, that had a very basic sort of preamp, some simple effects, and an output where you could plug in a set of headphones. Possible? I'm thinking three knobs (maybe tone, gain, reverb) or alternately a small display with a few tweakable parameters. Doable?
The sort of spark was me walking around with my guitar. I do it all the time, and always get in trouble for not listening to people when they tale to me. And I was thinking how cool it would be if I could walk around with an electric slung on my shoulder, set of headphones, and be in my own little world. And it'd be (loosely) comparable to walking around on stage with a wireless system.
But it's probably been done - anyone heard of anything similar to what I'm thinking of?
