Had the opportunity to go to a really wonderful workshop last week on PEDAL BUILDING! Taught by Asenath, and assisted by their sibling Briana (Briana Marela, Jagjaguwar), and graciously hosted by Bar Francis.
About six of us made fuzz pedals -- soldered everything from scratch! It took us over four hours and not a peep of complaint from anyone the entire time.
A few photos below. *Not* difficult and so fun. Asenath recommends, if people are interested in electronics // DIY electronics and music, that people get
- Handmade Electronic Music (link here)
- "one of those 300 in one kits" (example here of a less-expensive "50 in 1" kit -- no soldering required)
- Electronics Projects for Musicians (link here)
- another common beginning book that might be a *little* advanced (definitely for my knowledge) is MAKE: Analog Synthesizers: Make Electronic Sounds the Synth-DIY Way (link here)
thanks Asenath and Briana..!
