These projects will be much easier for those people who have attained some level of ingenuity from experience.
Kits:The Trill Tremolo, The Ring Resonator, The Contortionist, The Contortionist II
4With even more complexity than the level-three projects, if you have soldering experience and are not intimidated by building complicated circuits contained in tight spaces, this build level should be okay for you. There is a level of ingenuity that comes from previous build experience which allows you to anticipate assembly challenges and find alternate approaches that may work better for you. These projects will be much easier for those people who have attained some level of ingenuity from experience.
Kits:The Inducer, The Persuader, The Verb, The Enticer, The Verb Deluxe, The Persuader Deluxe, The Wahtz Wah, The Aggressor, The Ring Resonator Deluxe, The Suspended Chime
5If you have a good amount of experience with soldering, are not intimidated by building complex circuits and are confident about working safely with high-voltage electronics, then this build level should be okay for you. There is a level of ingenuity that comes from previous build experience which allows you to anticipate assembly challenges and find alternate approaches that may work better for you. These projects will be much easier for those people who have attained some level of ingenuity from experience.
