These little laser cut washers will be on every kit, supporting the little microphone.

Without these, the mic pins can easily bend as you handle the board. Too much and they'll break. These little washers fill the space and have notches to fit around the nearby surface mount parts. The result is a much more durable build.

In the workshop, some parts will involve real-time audio processing, where you speak into the mic and hear the effects applied.
