So I thought I would stop hijacking @philtre
's thread and start my own for my pedal building stuff.
I got some stuff together over the last couple of days and I'm ready to get started. I've gone down a slightly different route from Phil and started off with a couple of PCB kits from FuzzDog. To get my soldering hand back in, since I haven't soldered anything more than a pickup swap in years, I thought I'd start with something very simple, so I have knocked up a little tester to allow me to power, switch and get a signal in and out of builds.
And here it is:
I forgotten just how fiddly soldering small parts on a PCB could be. The strip connector at the front is for connecting ribbon cable from FuzzDog direct connect compatible kits, whereas I can use the blue terminals to attach wires from other builds. The obvious downside of this setup compared to Phil's breadboard system is that there's no pots, so I either have to attach the pots first or double this with a breadboard for pots.
Nothing exciting so far - next up will be a pedal circuit. Another PCB kit from FuzzDog.
