We’re excited to announce a new product we now carry: the mklec mk-vb26 veroboard. We had these manufactured based on our specs and they look awesome. Since the price of veroboards tend to be high and there are very limited sizes to choose from as far as the smaller boards are concerned, we decided to have some custom made to suit many of our veroboard layouts. Not only that, we’re able to offer them at a great price that is sure to please.
I’m a fan of the Logitech Trackman mice and have been for years. These have been the most sensible solution to cluttered or limited spaces where moving a mouse around just isn’t practical. But after heavy/long-term use, it seems inevitable the index finger button will start malfunctioning. It seems to start randomly double-clicking when single clicking or begin to work in other similarly strange ways. The unfortunate thing is these aren’t the cheapest mice either, usually starting at around $30 – $40 each.

Probably the most complicated thing to grasp for first time builders is in regards to the offboard wiring. Mark at tagboardeffects has a great explanation in his Offboard wiring page, but sometimes the generic board just isn’t enough. After all, “Where do the potentiometers go?”, “How do I wire the ground wires?”, etc. just isn’t shown in the diagrams. So I decided I would make a practical application showing a kit completely wired (minus the jacks) so you can see how it works.
The Dumbloid Special Clone Kit is a great overdrive effects pedal kit. In an effort to assist a customer with their build, I decided to build this kit out and see if I ran into any problems. Here’s the story of that build.
