The Shruthi is not difficult to assemble. The assembly instructions are very detailed, part values are printed on the PCB, and there are no surface mount parts. However there are more than 200 parts to solder, increasing the risks of doing something wrong if you are not 100% sure of your soldering skills. While there is an increasing group of people having successfully built the Shruthi without prior experience, there are also a few occurrences of people having damaged their kit beyond repair.
Our advice? If you never have soldered anything in your life, go grab a small kit at your local electronic store, assemble it, and come back to the Shruthi afterwards.
