I think I just found my early x-mas present this year. I like to work on electronics. I very rarely ever get anything work and I’m down right horrible with a soldering iron, but damn it, I’m trying! I have a feeling if I keep at it, I can be one of those electronic wizards that can create custom pedals, etc. Not sure why I want to be this so bad, but it’s true.
Anyway, I found the book titled “Electronic Projects for Musicians“, and it seems to be exactly what I’m looking for. With this, I can start to build something from scratch and learn while I’m doing it. I feel this is different than buying a kit at BYOC, this hopefully will allow me to learn what the hell I’m doing (specifically the math and rules of what resistors or capacitance I need, etc). Hmm, maybe I need a electronics for dummies book too?
Here is the official book description:
How to build pre-amps, tone controls, ring modulators, mixers, and many other inexpensive electronic accessories. Written in simple language, with hundreds of clear illustrations and step-by-step instructions.
