adding an Led?
« on: January 28, 2009, 07:56:08 AM »
Hey guys, could anyone tell me where I'd add an LED to this circuit if I wanted to? is there a general rule to follow for all pedal? I imagine it would have to be somewhere in the circuit that is connnected only when the swicth is on, but could it just go from say my output, through a resistor to the led to ground?

Here the LED/resistor hooks up directly to the switch.

3PDT's are easier, and in the end, the extra 1 or $2 they cost is equal to the cost of the parts for a Millenium - although, for a retrofit, the Mill. is really nice!  Or if you can't get the 3PDT anywhere (Small Bear Electric has them very reasonably priced).
