Damn, that was fast. Didn't you just pick it up from me.Milkman said:I did the BYOC wah (drop in kit) last night.
As this was my first attempt at populating and soldering a PCB, I'm quite happy about how smoothly it went.
I bought a nice 15 watt grounded soldering iron (up until now I've only used a Weller dual heat gun) and set up an illuminated magnifying glass on a retractable arm.
Here's how it looks. I still have to test it out a bit later this morning.

Looks good. Are you diggin the TB?
True thatMilkman said:Well it actually sat in the box for a few days before I got ambitious.
It's a bit early to really assess the results, but my impression is that when bypassed, my sound is cleaner than before.
I can say that the process of building the kit was quite enjoyable. There was only one detail in the instructions that was missing and I had to make an assumption. Evidently my assumption was either correct or at least had no negative impact.
I may try a BYOC Keeley comp clone next (nice to have two Keeleys, but they're not cheap, LOL).
