My old trusty Radio Shack multimeter broke recently. I’ve had it for about 15 years and it has been a workhorse! I loved using it to build my stompboxes and debug my amps. The resistance function broke recently and it was time to find another. I have a number of meters but I wanted another one that was like my old Radio Shack meter. It had True RMS and other functions and it was accurate.
Well, I searched on Ebay and locally and I found a newer model with auto-ranging and true RMS and even a computer interface. I just received the meter and it ROCKS! It seems much better made and almost everything from the display to the information shown to the probes and the extra fuses make this a great deal for under $35! I have a hard time imagining a better meter at this price. I think you will probably like it as well for building stompboxes!

These light plates fit in between the bottom plate and the box. They provide a way to light up the edges of your pedals and make a cool lighting effect!!!!! So instead of a single LED lighting up, you see the entire border of the bottom of the box lighting up!!!!! It’s very cool. All you need to do is drill the holes on the plate and mount an LED.
You can purchase parts for your stompboxes at the DIYstompboxes.com store. See the store link.
