    Hi everyone,

    Looks like a superb forum you have here - I have a bit of a plea for help and this seems like a place that might be good to answer it...

    I'm looking to build the below kit:
    http://www.e-licktronic.com/en/content/25-yocto-tr808-clone-tr-808

    However - I need a hand putting it together - is there anyone here based in the UK that would be willing to assemble it (or know of anyone who would) for a small fee?

    THANKS!

    Why not learn to read and solder at the same time...? :)
    Instructions look dead simple..

    @wayneh - that is the kit you've linked to!

    @mcgyvr - I have serious issues soldering - I am one of the least coordinated people out there...! :)

    There are plenty of people here that are based in the UK. It will be to your advantage to say where in the UK, though, it may help narrow it down a bit.;)

    Being that I am nowhere near you, practice makes perfect - you can't start soldering as a master...

    Oops, so it is. I saw "Complete" kit and mistook it for being already completed. My bad.

    But I suppose the question remains - why not just buy what you need, if you don't want the experience of building a kit?

    It's a drum machine that plays itself. That's the whole point. ;)

    I would solder it for free, but you would be missing out on the pleasure of doing yourself. Small tip, if you do solder it yourself, make sure you use solder with lead in, lead free stuff is alot harder to solder.
