Components worth buying and harvesting
« on: March 28, 2020, 02:09:32 AM »
Hello all! Most of my components comes from scrap electronics, but this may yield maybe a boost pedal. Maybe. Is there a general DIY kit of components that would allow me to build a variety of pedals? Or can I rely on sifting through electronics? 
Don't throw that out until you take it apart.

There are loads of electronic suppliers and it is far cheaper to buy parts that try and recover them from old gear as far as your time is concerned. For example you can buy 100 resistors for like a quid, 50c or whatever. Buy common values of resistors and caps a few op amp selections, diodes and your ready to go for about 20 or what ever. So it all depends on where you come from for suggesting suppliers.

It's fairly straight forward, if you want to start it , press start. You can work out the rest of the controls for yourself !
