Week 2: Fred

I had a little trouble getting enuf piezo pickups to make contact mikes, so this week we'll be working on Freds:


This will be about as close as we get to "circuit bending", you'll get some experience soldering/desoldering circuit boards plus an intro to various kinds of resistors, some discuss about playing interfaces... plus a Fred to call your own.

Here's the instruction sheet [posted as webpage 7/14]; see you Saturday.

Great lesson today, learned a new trick or two and got a cool new gadget out of it to use in my show! Thanks!!!

Agreed, that was a great lesson. I'm really happy with my first fred. I'm going to look for a button this week and polish him up. I spent at least 1/2 hour designing enclosures in my head tonight.
