Second pedal from schematic: Improved Stratoblaster
Here's my second pedal from schematic except I used the layout from Guitar Gadgets for negative switch wiring (attached). I am getting the LED to work properly with switch on and input plug inserted. If you unplug or turn off switch, the LED goes out. I get clean guitar in bypass mode but when I turn on the effect the guitar sound is diminished, i.e., it is less loud than when the effect is turned off; the pot works but doesn't affect the tone or loudness.
Anyone have any idea what is wrong?
Sirbergersworth: I like the paint job and the "Coppertone" idea on your pedal. I really liked the sound of the first one I did which is a simpler version of the Alembic Stratoblaster. I have to figure out what is wrong with the second one. I am a novice also, the pedals here are not only the first from schematic but the first: period. I am spending way too much time on them. I am curious to see the schematic for yours could you post a copy?
