    I need some advice for a starting point to use for a guitar pickups signal to amp input during Ltspice simulation of the amp. I've been using 30mv 400hz. Is that even close to a value. I can't remember where I first saw this online. Thanks to anyone that can help me out.

    Transient peaks are typically around 500mV-1V for passive pickups and a solid strum of hte strings. 400Hz is within the frequency range for guitar.

    Yes, I bet so, but I am just using a 400hz sine wave source in Ltspice simulation and 500mv would completely swamp the pre-amp of the circuit. I have seen a few different simulations online of amps and they ranged from 15mv to 50mv on their sources, so I am confused still. That is not hard for me though. Lol

    30mv and 400Hz is reasonable to simulate real guitar playing.

    All right thanks to all.
