SC-1 Preamp Build, Pt. 1
Got my SC-1 kits this morning. Boy, howdy, did he do a nice job putting these together. Everything was nicely labeled, and I didn't even need to refer to the parts sheet once. No complaints whatsoever on the quality of the parts selected or the kit itself. My only problems were (a) that pot didn't really like to take solder, so I had to fuck with it a little to get it seated and soldered, and (b) I accidentally put a 100R resistor in a 100K spot and vice versa, so there was some hijinx involved with getting those switched.
But that aside, all seems to be well. Of course, with the caveat that I haven't actually plugged it in yet. Perhaps I'll build the power supply now. Heh. It took about 3 hours total to build, even with the fuck-ups, and my shakey-assed soldering skillz. The second one should go faster, I would think. If these work as I expect, I'll get another 6, and they can comprise the input and fader sections of my Appropriate 8-Channel Sidecar.
