i'd really like to start experimenting with some diy pedal builds but i've never soldered a thing in my life!

can anyone recommend a reasonable soldering kit?

Do you mean a kit of soldering tools, or a starting kit you can solder?

yeah sorry, i should have been (a lot) clearer - soldering tools. i'm not sure about wattages, gas vs electric, any extra tools i may need etc

it's probably safe to say i'd be looking for a set of tools that isn't over the top for a beginner but will still be useful as i get a little more confident.
i imagine it's very apparent by now that i have no idea about this stuff :lol:

thanks :)

I taught myself to solder about 30 years ago with one of these style of Antex:

Ive still got it somewhere, cant remember the exact wattage, though, as I use a variable-temperature one now. I think the only other tools I had were a solder sucker, pliers, and heat shunt tweezers. I still resort to nail clippers to strip wire half the time. :lol:

interesting video if you want to make your own knobs. Found a few others, but this one seemed the most relevant to here

That's a rad video! I have worked on a few projects for clients who asked that I use a specific type of knob and this would have made it easier to source them. I'm still nervous about working with chemicals, though...
