Electronic Music DIY Component Order Form (Rapidonline.com)

Saturday, January 9th, 2010 | Building Things, Electronics

I thought I’d put together a kit of the components you’ll need to get started with Nicolas Collins excellent book “Handmade Electronic Music” My review and videos HERE. I decided to do this because it took me quite a few attempts to obtain the correct parts from uk suppliers to make the projects in the book. I thought it would be great to be able to get all the parts in one go without having to pay multiple shipping charges and risking not getting the correct components. Included in the kits are everything suggested in the book with the exception of a few components which were left out due to high cost, unavailability, or because you may never actually use it.

The only things not included are: Wire (you’ll need some, solid core, stranded, shielded) telephone coil Pickup, Inductor, Transformer, Phototransitor (LDR’s or Light Dependent Resistors ARE included),Fixed Voltage Regulator (variable Regulator IS included). That said you will be able to build 95% of what is in the book including all the chip based CMOS noise maker  circuits.

Best of luck,

Nice idea, this order form ! Have you got any idea where to get the wires, all I can find is 30m of wires for around £30 at RS… Not cheap !

Here is what I found ;

As the list is for Rapid it would make sense to get wire from there also – I’m sure i’ve had short lengths from there before.

Hi John,
I got my copy of the book a couple of months ago and have been reading through it before getting my hands dirty. I’ve just used your spreadsheet to order off rapid – (what an absolute time saver that was, cheers) but thought I’d let you know that the order numbers for DIL sockets have changed as follows:
8pin – 22-1757
14pin – 22-1758
16pin – 22-1759

Cheers
