I plan on building it. It won't be as easy as the 3 input kit though since I will have to source at least the chassis and mounting board.

Getting a chassis with the back plate drilled and labeled is going to be the fun part. I can drill round holes but squares or rectangles is a different issue, then will come the labeling.

Would a wood back plate work or would that cause issues?

You can certainly use wood. I would limit this to max 1/8" thickness since any thicker and the power/trigger jacks run out of thread. No problem with the longer RCA jacks especially the Cardas which are long to start with.

Just a note to say that the tour preamp has been shipped from SFDude to myself, and arrived safely today.  I hooked it up and got it passing tunes, and am now reading the online documentation so I can explore all the features.  Next update will probably occur once I have shipped it off to the next person.  Have a lot of listening to do in the meantime..
