Some of you know that I’ve been experimenting with the pedals, and I’d like to eventually like to make my own effects circuit. I’ve been doing a lot of research and meeting a ton of people that are either into modifying or creating their own pedals. This community is absolutely fantastic, and more importantly, fun for a nerdy type like myself.
I’ve been working lightly with electronics for a couple of years, but by no means am I an expert.. so I have a long way to go. I’ve just been playing with various projects and working on some repairs and what not, but it’s important to always go back to the basics. Soldering is something I know I have more to learn and is very critical for electronics. You can get away with a lot, but with stomp boxes, you definitely want to get it right since they get thrown around, and stomped on. So your connections need to be done right.
Here is a great video on soldering by CuriousInventor. Lots of great information here:
