Tools of the Trade

    TOOLS OF THE TRADE!!!

 

First tool you should have is a DMM or DVM

DMM

There are many DVM/DMM meters out there that will work, you DON’T have to buy a super cool/expensive FLUKE.  All you need is it to read DC volts and AC volts and you are good.

 

Second tool would either be a Oscilloscope or an RTA

The 2 scopes I like are TPI-440

440scope

 

Or the really small Velleman HPS140i

RTA (a must have tool for ANYTHING audio related)

RTA

A REALLY great HandHeld RTA is the Phonic PAA-3

Handheld RTA

 

And if all else fails -an IPhone (with a PAID Audio Tools RTA app installed) works pretty damn well!!
