So I just got my Menqi DPLPG kit in the mail yesterday and built it up. I tested it multiple times and I receive no sound coming out of it and no signs of life from the LEDs. The only time I get sound is when I pinch my fingers together on the upper two pegs of the vactrol, otherwise nothing works (the same thing happens on both channels). I’m not sure if I burnt something out due to my shoddy soldering skills or what, but I’m confused and just don’t know where to go with it, especially since Menqi doesn’t provide a build guide online. And apparently my kit is also missing pieces? I ordered it from Modular Addict, and their kit contains different pieces than the BOM listed on Thonk and I’m unsure why that is.
My kit didn’t contain the resistors, capacitors, or 1N4148. Just the PCB, panel, jacks, LEDs and the Vactrols. But even if I did receive those, I’m not entirely sure where on the board they’re supposed to go. Any help explaining this would be greatly helpful. Anyone who has a DPLPG, I could use some pics of the guts as they seem to be sparse online.
