Title: Built, but working oddly
Post by: Barcode80 on October 01, 2006, 02:22:20 AM
I finally got the beginner project built, but though I have wired the pot properly according to the pic in another thread that Aron posted, but when I run through the effect, I get great signal.... exactly the same unaffected signal as I get on bypass. also, the pot has no effect on the signal, no matter how much i turn. here are some replies to some answers i know i'll get:

1) no, i didn't wire the switch wrong because i left it out, wired the circuit direct as always on

2) yes, i put the 47u cap on the pot between lugs 1 and 2.

any help?

Let's think about this. If you have exactly the same signal, then you have a short from the input to the output somehow. Sounds like it, since the volume pot has no affect on the sound.

okay, i'll recheck my solders once more and see if i can track down a short somewhere. Thanx Aron!
