Expression Slider Assembly Instructions

Thank you for purchasing the Synthrotek Expression Slider Kit!  This is a fairly easy project, but please get help from a friend if you need it BEFORE starting!

ATTN: Please follow the BOM and these instructions. Don’t populate from the PCB silkscreen or these instruction pictures alone. Our components may look different from the pictures, so please look over your parts and check the codes first.

RESISTOR

Place the resistor into the PCB as shown below.  Resistors are non-polarized components, so you can place it either direction.  Carefully turn over to solder then clip excess leads.
