foot switch schematic to stripboard?
« on: April 11, 2018, 11:43:15 AM »
I've never built a stripboard from a schematic. Can anyone help?

My advice. Start small like a simple buffer, Then a simple fuzz, then a tubescreamer. You'll get the hang of it quick enough and get quicker knowing how to get those resistors from one side of an opamp to another. It can be frustrating at first but you really get to know the schematic.

I personally don't mind standing resistors if it means I can put it in a 1590b and not 1590bb. But many people seems to not like that

Edit. Maybe I misunderstood are you trying to do your own Vero layout?

yes Iím trying to build a replacement foot switch for an Ibanez thermion amp

In all honesty... why do you even need stripboard? All of that can be built point-to-point relatively quickly.

You just need (3) DPDT footswitches, an enclosure, a TRS jack, a Mono jack, some resistors, (1) Green LED, (2) Bi-color LEDs common cathode, and some wire.

I love it! Thank you so much
