Are you having a hard time lining up those 8 potentiometers on the front of the DS-8 Drum Synth Clone? Well we’re sharing our Space Drum Synth drill template with you so you can make that task easier. This is our actual drill template for both sides of the Drum Synth. This will work especially well if you purchase the 1590DD Aluminum project box.
A real neat trick with this is to print out the drill template and then glue it to a piece of cardboard. Cut out the template and holes for the pots. Slide the template over your pots before soldering, lightly tighten then to the cardboard template. Solder in place. All your pots will line up beautifully. Plus, if you use the cardboard template for soldering, then print another copy and use it for drilling your case the whole board will slip right in place! Save hours of frustration and reduce the potential to break something as you force fit something.
