    Cheap Radio Shack Voice amp.

    Anyone know if this will work off a mic? I'm not sure how loud it is or anything- suggestions welcome. This is the last piece of my costume and this is a last minute thing that Im not sure will work. Either my mic is broken or it doesnt amplify your voice.

    it depends on what kind of connector you have on the mic.

    I use this amp on both my trooper and Fett. In the trooper I use it with aerator speakers and woorks great. With fett I put it in one of the side pouches and it does a fairly good job there. 100% better than no amp at all.
    With this amp you have to use a powered mic for it to work. I made my own by taking a regular mic and adding 2 AA batteries in series with one of the mic leads.

    Hey Cal196,

    I had one of those cheap radioshack amps for my Fett and I personally didn't like the sound that it produced. I would recommend looking into another set-up.

    As for TK armor, I wouldn't use the radioshack amp either. I use the skullworx unit. This is by far, one of the best set-ups and I really enjoy it.

    By the way Cal, your Fett looks great!

    Thanks, and I think your right. I couldnt get that thing to work so I took it back. I'll probably just order a RS at some point. They are really loud.
