[sdiy] OT:High gain low noise amp for beheaded tape head

All, I am doing the tape loop on a bow passed across a tape head thing. 
The head came out of an old Grundig TK-23 and though I have saved the 
guts of this tube and transformer fishing weight I want to make 
something small and light(because I am hauling a double bass and a bunch 
synth modules already) to get the signal loud enough to go into a Roland 
Space Echo. Right now when I use a mxr gain pedal it is barely loud 
enough so I want to build some preamp. Can someone point to a project 
schem, kit or group that could help. Thanks.
