OK so I have built this puppy and am getting signal, however it is 4dB quieter than my straight guitar signal (with the volume
on the boost all the way up).
Some potential issues...(Im a total noob so clearly I need help!!)
I used a nonpolarized 47uf cap, and all the others are polarized (with the arrow along the side of the cap), is this OK?
Also, my .1uf input cap is much, much smaller than the one in Aron's pic. Does this matter?
I used an NPN222A transister (its silver).
The only pot I could find is a "Mini" 5k Linear Taper.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
