I am just finishing up my second NPN Boost. My first one came out great. I do want to experiment with some different transistors though. I do have a question on the 3PDT switch. I know how to wire it with a stereo input jack from the pictures that Aron posted - thank you very much!  :)  I did that on my first NPN Boost. But, I would like to use a mono input jack on this one instead. The reason is because I'm not going to use a 9V battery, so I don't need the cut off for power, I'm going to use a 9VDC jack.

So, how would I wire in a mono unput jack instead of a stereo one?

Thanks in advance.

PS - By the way, I figured out how to wire up LEDs in my Wah pedal, I did it in three pedals and I really love it.

I got it with a little help from my friend - Brian Wampler.

Thanks a bunch! The pedal worked the first time I plugged it in and it sounds GREAT!!!

I would like to build this circuit and put it in a guitar and have only a toggle switch to turn the effect on and off.
I use EMGs in all my guitars, should I just tap into the EMGs battery power to run this unit as well?

If you are not going to use the battery snap, then you can either just omit it, or connect the black wire from the snap to the sleeve of the mono jack (instead of on the ring).

But this means that anytime you use a battery, the circuit is always on.

Sleeve is ground in this picture.



Hi guys,
Iīm using a DPDT (ON ON), should I appply the shcematic showned above?
Thanks ;)

Yes you can, but without the led circuit.

Yes, ignore the vertical middle set of lugs (the ones with the LED connected to).

I was going to make this pedal and a killswitch pedal, when I realized, couldn't I just put a SPST button right after the input jack, but before the 3PDT switch?

Better use a spdt switch to ground the 3pdt circuit input to avoid hum when you stomp on the kill switch and disconnect the input jack from the 3pdt.

Hi guys,
Thanks for the quick reply,
As I said so I have a DPDT (ON ON), but I forgot to mention that it only has 6 pins !
Iīve take a picture of it and try to conect them accordingly to Aronīs schematic but donīt know if it is right :-\
Could you guys give me a little help on this?
Thanks  ;)

No, it's not right. You have to eliminate the LED circuit, because you only have a dpdt. Or use the Millenium bypass concept in which you can have a loop and the LED with only a dpdt switch. Check it at: http://www.geofex.com/

Thanks for me too. Now could I also use another 3PDT switch and only wire one pole??(since I have to buy 2 anyways)

If you need help or have any more questions just let me know. I was once a beginner too and just want to help.

Thanks,

I  have another question, is there a way so the killswitch also turns on the LED when activated?

Yes, just use one of the two poles of the 3pdt switch used as the killswitch and wire it in the same manner as in the loop switch depending when you want the switch to turn on the LED during the muting action or when it let pass the sound.

So there would be two wires to the LED? Then you would run it to the battery before back to the switch, correct?

Yes, one to the resistor (and to V+) and one to the switch.

Hi, I've built a few pedals before

Would like to inquire about a "NEW" type of wiring with the 3PDT switches.
Its different from the one mentioned on this thread, for eg. for this BSIABII
http://www.generalguitargadgets.com/pdf/ggg_bsiab2_lo.pdf

Whats with the complexity? When it does the same job anyway?
Or is it better?
