Title: Am I doing this right?
Post by: hobojoe on March 28, 2007, 09:41:08 PM
I am new to the board and this is my first build and i am having a bit of trouble =\

OK so I have it all wired up but I have the input and output wired straight to the board because I havent been able to order the 3PDT switches

This is how i wired it after looking through a lot of posts

So when i first plugged in my Axe i got normal sound into my amp but once i touched the pot i have gotten nothing out of it

my voltages out of the trannie are
Q:
C: 9.14
B: 2.906
E: This one was weird im not sure if it was my multimeter but it started at about 3.5 and slowly dropped down and finally stopped at 2.506

Someone help me please  ???

Most of it looks correct - at a glance. Are you sure the orientation of the transistor is correct?

Thanks for the quick reply aron, I feel like such an idiot I plugged my guitar into my amp and it wasnt working so i figured out that my input jack wire had broken off, I re-soldered it and your pedal worked perfectly
