Building the Nava #1 – Soldering the Power Supply

It is time to build the E-Licktronic Nava, the Roland TR-909 clone! I’ve had the kit and a metal case for several years but I haven’t actually started building it. So about a month ago I ordered the remaining components from Mouser. In this video I solder and test the power supply.

Nothing exceptional here; but as usual it is a good idea to sort all of the components before you start so they are easy to find!

I would recommend getting a crimping tool for the cable. It is probably doable with a pair of pliers if you are careful but the €20 I spent on the cheapish tool was nice. As I used the BOM from E-Licktronics site I got the exact amount of terminals that was needed, so there’s not much room for error. I would recommend that you order some extra so you have some room for mistakes…

Everything sorted!

    Hi, was wondering if you’d be so kind as to link me to the instructions / build sheet you were using on your video’s for building the Nava 909?
