Ribbon Cable - Flexstrip, 8 Conductor
Eight conductor Flexstrip ribbons cables. These ribbons feature a nomex insulator so there are no melting issues when soldering. Unlike typical ribbon cables, the wires are designed to distribute the stress of the bend and vibrations throughout the entire cable rather than directly on the solder joints. These cables are a great choice for PCB to PCB connections in pedals, synths, and other electronics. The spacing is .1" (2.54mm).
Starting at $1.20
Op-Amp - LM358H, Dual, 8-Pin TO-99 package
LM358H dual op amp in an 8-pin TO-99 package. The LM358H series consists of two independent, high gain, internally frequency compensated operational amplifiers which were designed specifically to operate from a single power supply over a wide range of voltages. Operation from split power supplies is also possible and the low power supply current drain is independent of the magnitude of the power supply voltage. Application areas include transducer amplifiers, dc gain blocks and all the conventional op-amp circuits which now can be more easily implemented in single power supply systems.
$10.95
Integrated Circuit - PT2399, Echo / Delay
PT2399 echo/delay chip used in many DIY and commercial pedals. The PT2399 is in a DIP 16 package. Minimal external components are required for use and delay time is set with resistance.

CMOS - CD4013, Dual D-Type Flip-Flop, 14-Pin DIP
The CD4013B device consists of two identical, independent data-type flip-flops. Each flip-flop has independent data, set, reset, and clock inputs and Q and Q outputs. These devices can be used for shift register applications, and, by connecting Q output to the data input, for counter and toggle applications. The logic level present at the D input is transferred to the Q output during the positive-going transition of the clock pulse.
