If you are an audio engineer and you looking for a way to broaden your skills, learning how to solder can be a very valuable skill to have.

It is best to get a soldering iron that has a 25watt power rating. If you are serious about doing a large amount of soldering I would advise doing some research and buying a professional soldering iron. It is best to start with soldering connectors so i would get a couple xlr or quarter inch connectors and cables to practice with.

I strongly advise researching and using safe soldering practices because the heat of a soldering iron can be very dangerous.READ MORE
