Ok, if I record something decent (I dont have amp right now, so I recorded just thru Vox Amplug and putting headphones next to mic of my phone), I'll send it :)

if you need a good little amp that takes pedals well , search ''punch amp'' or ''chime amp''

your next build...  ;)

I have amp, but 20W Ampeg :D And now I dont have it nearby, and I have bass, so Punch amp or Chime amp wont work so well I think :) Only if I plug 10" speaker into it :D But thanks for a tip :)

Its good that Ampeg and I have that Vox Amplug Bass 2, but I'm thinking about some tube preamp running on 9V...

Its boxed, just in plastic box, but should be ok :) And I didnt use true bypass but this style of switching, but with DPDT switch and Im switching battery with it too...

Is normal that diodes are glowing when I turn it on?

A couple of things...

1. I wouldn't really expect to see much light from the LEDs - certainly not as bright as your picture shows.  For them both to be lit at the same time suggests one is round the wrong way.
2. Switching power with the bypass stomp-switch is not a good idea.  Particularly in the middle of a song.
3. A plastic box means you'll pick up radio stations, microwaves and WiFi.
4. Your switching scheme means the circuit is constantly sucking at your guitar signal.

If you can't get hold of a 3PDT switch, check out R.G.'s Millennium switching system (at the GeoFEX link above).  And use one of the common schemes for wiring jacks and batteries so that power is switched on when you insert your guitar lead.  I use the ones at Tonepad all the time.

And if I just use DPDT as a true bypass and separate switch for battery?

I made it with 2 switches and same problem, but I dont know if LEDs are lightning up when I turn up wolume or turn down

Use a stereo input jack and wire the black battery lead to the ring lug.  With no guitar lead inserted, it's not connected to anything and the battery doesn't drain.  Put the (mono) guitar lead in, and the ring and sleeve lugs are shorted by the plug, thereby connecting the battery -ve to ground and completing the circuit.

When I turn battery on, its ok, when I touch pot with finger they light up, but when I touch battery they dont light...

Does anyone have a vero layout for this version? Wanted to give it a try, but I only got stripboard with me

Here's my corrected layout:

Can somebody tell me opinion to this? I want to put it as a onboard effect...Its like boost/fuzz, with switch I can sellect between first stage or second stage of 2 transistor XFuzz...
