thanks guys for all the information. I cant wait to get started on my first project. However, yet another question has arisen...
I noticed that on the forum that people have posted layouts and schematics for many different types of pedals. The schematics do not have a layout with them, and the layouts do not have a schematic with them. for the projects that show a detailed color picture layout, how do I know which components to connect to which under the perfboard? Do I have to find the schematic and try to follow it?
Here is the project that I am specifically talking about... "Colorsound One Knob Fuzz Build Tutorial" Its posted on http://www.diypedals.com/
and is under DragonFly FX. On his tutorial, he mounts the components and solders them to the board, but I dont see that he connects the components together underneath the perfboard, like Aron did in his beginner project tutorial.
Am I missing something?
Thanks again for the help and advice...
