Soldering the ZVex Box Of Rock

It's been a long time! I've been so caught up in school it's been really hard for me to start up my pedal building. In my last post I said I had already soldered in some components, well today I finished soldering all the on-board components to the board. I think this is one of the more tricky builds that I've ever made. Well here are the pictures, hope you enjoy them!

The hardest thing that I had to do for this soldering job was putting these small capacitors in parallel. My technique was to have one cap with it's leads strait and the other one to make loops around the lead lick a guitar string.
I'll be sure to move on to the next step pretty soon. I really hope I can get this done by the end of november, will I reach that goal, I don't know.

Until next time
