I've had a few questions from people asking about building the electronics from the LE STRUM kit into a larger/more ergonomic performance instrument... This is not only achievable, but I positively encourage it! I'd love to see people taking the basic minimal LE STRUM and using it as the starting point for crazy new MIDI instruments. I have provided some information to get you started on the LE STRUM wiki
If your intention is to to do this from the get-go then there is a lot of stuff in the basic LE STRUM kit that you just don't need (switches, sockets, legs etc). In fact, all you really need from me is the PCB and the programmed PIC16F1825 microcontroller. The other parts are pretty standard and depending on your intended design you may not need all of them anyway.
This item consists of:
You will need to source yourself, as a minimum
To add the indicator and power LEDs
If you will not run from a 5V regulated supply and want to run from a 9V battery then you may want to add
You will also need (according to your design)
(* as determined by your imagination!)
