Title: DPDT (NO LED) connection. Is this correct???
Post by: cat on August 24, 2006, 09:44:31 AM
Hi, Ive read the articles on true bypass and DPDT's. I was wondering if the diagram Ive knocked up here (using aron's photos) is the correct way to hook up the beginner project with a DPDT switch and no LED?

No problems  :D

Hope you didnt mind me stealing some of your images aron. I know a few people such as myself cant get a hold of 3PDT's so easily so I thought Id draw this up for those who only have DPDT's or cant be bothered with an LED  ;D

Sorry for bringing back an old thread and sorry if its posted elsewhere but I couldn't find the answer. Where would the LED connect in the circuit shown above?

Thanks

benjo09... It's a DPDT switch... There's no room for the LED in there without effecting the Pedal.

2 options:

1) Get a 3PDT switch...
2) Search for some info on bypass circuits, like the Millenium Bypass. It's a basic circuit that allow you to have true bypass and light a LED without severe changes in the effect but still using the DPDT.

For more info on the Millenium Bypass take a read at this -> http://www.geofex.com/Article_Folders/Millenium/millen.htm (http://www.geofex.com/Article_Folders/Millenium/millen.htm)
