    I've just completed a Tone Bender Mk1.5 build, and it sounds great, the only problem is that when I turn the guitar volume off to kill the signal, I get a nasty buzz. It's hard for me to tell if it's 60 or 120 by ear. It goes away immediately when I nudge the volume up just a bit. I've tried multiple cables and guitars.

    Any ideas? I'm pretty new to this, so I'm likely missing something basic. I used the schematic linked below to build.
