Hey,

I'm thinking of buying the Green muff kit from GGG, but it's my first build. Does anyone know if this is a good kit? I want a green muff clone, but can't really afford the hoof's devices one and I think it'd be cool to build something!

Secondly, are there any tips you can offer? Like type of solder to use (if there's more than one), parts upgrades (is some wire less noisy than others?) and things like that...

Thanks in advance!!

General Guitar Gadgets sells good quality kits. I've built a few. I'd just recommend to go slow and make sure your iron is hot enough. Also, stay away from lead-free soldier. That stuff sucks sweaty donkey balls.

I just did a British Blues OD kit from Buildyourownclone.com

I just finished and fired it up. Works real well.

I just did myfirst build wiht all new supplies and everything.

If you have a radio shack near you go pickup the 20/40w soldering station, some 60/40 rosin core solder, and a solder pump.

I've always used lead-free solder and I've never had a problem. What's the advantage of using a lead-based one?

Not to mention it seems a bit more brittle and prone to cold solder joints...
