Let's rock with the new SparkFun Proto Pedal guitar pedal and some cool revisions!
Hello, and welcome to another Friday Product Post! Even though we are still recovering from the Autonomous Vehicle Competition (AVC), we have quite the week for you. Four new products await your anticipating eyes, two of which should really make the music lover fall in love. This week we are pleased to release the new SparkFun Proto Pedal, a custom metal enclosure for it, and two new board revisions that have been fixed on your recommendation! Let's watch the video for a closer look!
The SparkFun Proto Pedal is an easy-to-assemble kit that makes building guitar effect pedals easier. Let's face it; most guitar pedals start with all-too-similar circuitry – you need the input and output jacks, the bypass switch, and a barrel jack for power input. In some pedals, there may be as much wiring involved in the jacks and switch as there is in the effect itself. The SparkFun Proto Pedal takes care of the hard part and provides you with a simple infrastructure; all you need to do is decide what simple circuit to make to gain your desired effect, and you'll be ready to rock!
If you don't want to make your own enclosure for your Proto Pedal, we've got you covered! The Proto Pedal Enclosure is a custom-machined aluminum case designed specifically for the SparkFun Proto Pedal. This enclosure was designed to take a beating even under the hardest jam sessions.
Moving away from audio boards, we have the new LilyPad Coin Cell Battery Holder. After receiving constructive feedback about the actual coin cell connector on this board popping off, we have solved the problem with this revision!
Last up today is the SparkFun FT231X Breakout. With a similar revision to the LilyPad board above, the FT231X Breakout is equipped with a new micro USB port to ensure that we can manufacture these at a more rapid pace to meet their high demand.
Alright folks, that's it for today. We really hope you enjoy all the new products that have been made available. If you come up with any awesome custom effect circuits for the Proto Pedal, let us know! We'd love to hear from you. Until next Friday... see you then!
