sound but no overdrive
« on: September 23, 2009, 01:20:50 PM »

Ok, got sound through but no overdrive. Any ideas? Checked, rechecked, and checked again but I must be missing something. Thanks

BTW. A very nicely put together project page. Even made it simple enough for me to try Cheesy

Look around the gain pot - somehow there must be a bad solder joint or a mistake in the wiring.

no point in starting a new topic, but im have the same problem, full clear sound with just a hint of gain but nothing like its supposed to, anyone shed some light on this. All the voltages check out ok ,checked and checked and rechecked the layout and re built it twice just in case i missed something

Any luck on the overdrive?  I just finished a Distortion+ and it is lacking in the distortion department.  I was wondering if it was just me.
