Default Complete Solder Station buy

Hello, first time poster but I want a solder statoin and setup to start on my path to DIY audio. I am able to do the general, desolder and solder fast and easily I have two solders and desolder pump but they won't be good enough for my next and subsequent projects I will be embarking on in my path to DIY AUDIO!

The Aoyue is a ripoff of a Hakko. I would spend an extra $26.71 and buy a Hakko FX-888 off that auction site. There's one on there now for $80.70 with free shipping.

I've never found much use for tweezers but use long needle nose pliers all of the time.

I have the Hakko tip cleaner that you mention but it doesn't seem to work as well as a damp sponge.

If you are going to use surface mount parts you will need the tweezers.
