Rocking it before I'm boxing it... how to ground?
« on: February 15, 2017, 03:47:40 PM »
I'm sure you all try out your pedals before you seal em up.  ;)

How do I ground it before I put it in the box? When I'm trying it, I can get sound out, but a ton of buzzing.....

Ground the jacks, both of them.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Ground the pcb and both jacks to the -negative on the battery or powersupply.

Get alligator wire so you can hook up the jacks temporarily. :)

I have a separate test enclosure that already has the jacks, switch, and led wired and ready, just have to attach the 4 wires from the pcb to test it out.
