Ok, so I am going to build some boards with the potentiometers built in (4 of them). Now if I want the potentiometers to mimic potential knobs on a pedal, what kind of potentiometer should I use? I assume a linear type. However, is there a standard rating knob that is used (for example B500K) or will it depend on what you want the knob to control in the circuit? having said this, given a "dream" inventory list to start with for 5 setups, what would I buy to outfit myself? I would love your feedback on pots, capacitors, transistors, diodes, switches, chips, etc. that you would have on hand to basically let these kids prototype pedal circuits. I have multimeters and the breadboards. I also have a lot of tracer wire too.
I also will do my best to my all the parts from this site since I can pay with paypal. Very cool.
