Hey all, I was thinking about starting a thread (possible sticky) on soldering best practices for pedals, wiring, cables, etc. I plan on learning in the next couple weeks but I have lots of preliminary questions: 1. Traditional Soldering kit or resistance (cold) soldering kit? Any advantage/disadvantage going with one or the other? 2. Soldering station "must haves". Any info on things experienced solderers (is that a word?) have at their work stations that help the process. 3. Best type of solder? Rosin core, lead-free, or silver solder? Any recommended thickness for working with effects and/or cables? There are many video tutorials and sites on how to solder, so any info on which are best would be appreciated. Also, any info on where to get the best parts/prices (I'm in the North East) would be great as well. My planned projects are modding an expression pedal, upgrading some stomp switches, and building my own MIDI/TRS cables. Thanks in advance!
