Need More Pedals

GGG Foxx Tone Machine Help
« on: February 24, 2021, 01:36:22 PM »
Hi there.  This is my 3rd pedal build.  This is my first build with just schematics and wiring diagram.  I am really enjoying building and would like to be as professional as possible, so I'm all EARS.  Proper wiring colors and resistor directions for easier troubleshooting, insulating, etc.

I am getting signal through the pedal.  When there is no power to the pedal and the fuzz switch(left) is pushed the guitar signal passes through the pedal, the octave switch does nothing.  When the pedal is powered and the fuzz switch is engaged the signal cuts and led turns on.  Potentiometers are not working.  The octave(right) switch does nothing but turn the led on.  and the two leds will not turn on at the same time.  When the octave switch is turned on, the led turns on but no change in signal, with the octave still on pushing the fuzz switch turn on the  fuzz and octave led's alternate one on, one off killing the signal every time it's on the fuzz channel.  There is a 1K resistor in line that splits the led power after the resistor.... first time I've seen that.  Thank you for any help you could give.  Thank you.

Hmmm...  Seems I needn't have bothered to move this thread - you cross-posted to three boards!

Locking so that things don't get messy...
Ohm's Law - much like Coles Law, but with less cabbage...
