I wonder how this will affect any hobbyist who sends an international PIF or whatnot in a standard letter envelope or inside a birthday card. Wouldn't this policy also affect gift cards sent in cards as well? Not sure about the weight of those.

I actually did this with a boost in an A B switch. If you donít power it, the volume wonít go past unity, and b went to the tuner. So it went in-> straight to boost-> A B switch -> out.

General Questions / Re: Digital Volume Control Pedal

Hello guys! I have a project that a bassist friend asked me to do, and I am not quite sure how to go about it! He was wanting a volume pedal but instead of having a foot treadle or a knob, he wanted it to just have 2 switches, one that is "volume down" and one that is "volume up" It would be just like a tv remote's volume buttons, but in a more rugged foot switch. I have done some googling and see that digital pots seem to be the way to go, but I was wondering what would be the simplest solution. He said that he would only need it to go from silent to unity, and i guess some leds to indicate what "level" he is at. I imagine that he would only need maybe 8-10 volume steps if that makes sense and he doesn't need any boost or anything. I am hoping this great community can help me out! Thanks!

This seems perfect for a small PIC chip. It would seem trivial to do with one of those. IMHO of course.

As an update, they eventually got back with me and offered a refund to my Paypal account or store credit.

I have noticed that their Tayda pots and knobs are a mixture of 6mm and 6.35mm shaft size without any/much labeling on their site. Some times they are little different in size. I'm definitely wanting more consistency and am willing to pay a bit more these days.

They probably buy rejects and overruns.

I think that everything that can/wanted/needed to be said on this has been said. So, let's leave it here.

That's an impressive vero build!  I've been tempted in the past to tackle that,
but I'm glad I waited until a PCB with board mounted pots was made available.
( by PMowdes2 at Dead End FX )

Looking forward to making lots of crazy noises.

So...uh.... I just got some of those short Taiway switches and the anodized nuts. Both look great!
