Nice work!  It is truly a special and awesome feeling powering up and hearing the fruits of your effort especially if there was some troubleshooting to get there.  Look forward to seeing the finished enclosure - another half the battle.  I like this guide for the switching because it walks through the process of what to hook up but also a simple explanation as to why.

There are also tons of threads on here to help.  So much knowledge on this forum that I'm thankful for!

Excellent stuff. My first completed pedal was a Red Llama (think I might label it the Pink Alpaca) - and not without a few hiccups, mostly in the power indicator LED and a piece of bare wire grounding on the enclosure. But it works :)
Second pedal was a Lovepedal Woodrow (with added gain knob) and third (currently in near-assembled state) a Rockett WTF.... We'll see how that one goes.

Cheers,

Three pedals under your belt, and no snaps??  Get thee to the Pictures thread!  And welcome...  :D

Just built my fourth pedal but mixed success ,Red Llama and Timmy working great but UBE screamer is stuck in half drive mode as the drive and tone don't change anything though it does sound good where it is stuck , Just finished assembling a Klon clone but it is quiet on bypass and only giving small amount of gain when on . The tl072 voltages are good but the charge pump voltages are mostly negative when they should be mostly positive .
 Not boxed any up yet as I was thinking of putting 2 distortions a chorus and a delay in one box .

I am quite the beginner at this electronics malarkey - I know what all the bits *are*, and mostly what they *do*, but have minimal understanding of how the work together. However, it's quite satisfying to hear something work that you have just made :)
When you say take some snaps, you dont mean gutshots too???
