I’m working on rolling out a series of pedal kit build tutorials that walks you through building one of our tagboardeffects DIY guitar effects pedal kits and here’s the first part of that series. One of the goals I’ve had for a while now is to try and make it as easy as possible for people new to building electronic circuits to do so and our guitar effects pedal kits are a great way to dive in. So I am creating a complete walk-through of building a kit, showing you step-by-step how to do it and explaining it well enough that you should be able to build your first kit with minimal problems.
I want to first say we’ve got some of the best customers anyone could possibly have. I have really enjoyed working to serve and help each of you so far and I hope this only continues to be true as we look ahead.
One of our customers was having trouble getting their Deep Blue Delay Kit to work, so I decided the best way to help is to build one out and photograph the build to give reference photos for anyone wanting to build our kits themselves and want to know exactly what it should look like. It was fun to take a break and pull out the soldering iron. Here’s a few notes regarding my approach to the build.
