Yes, for typical opamp with 1mhz GBW [LM358, LM324], max gain usable
at 40khz is only about 1Mhz/40khz = 25, and you probably need gain

Might try LF353/TL082-84, with 4mhz GBW --> gain=100. Also, make
sure all cascaded stages are AC-coupled, including gnd leg gain
resistor, if single-ended supply being used:

                  |  \opamp
----.1uF---+------|+  \
           |      |    +----+------.1uF-- (repeat 2x or 3x)
          100K  +-|-  /     |
           |    | |  /      |
           |    |           |
          gnd   +----100K---+

Use another 100K resistor from "+" input to +Vcc, for single-ended

Lastly, play around a lot with ckt values.
