Krankosaurus v3 pdf Q?
« on: December 07, 2010, 11:33:46 PM »
Noobishly I'm asking in the diagram on page 3 showing Switch wiring... are the poles of the 3pdt switches aligned horisontally or vertically?  It labels them ABC/123 but I've only wired 3pdt labelled 'A through I' ala the Wampler pedals book.  Your wisdom gratefully apreciated  :)

they are horizontal. try to keep the notch on the threaded part of your switch always pointing down towards the bottom of the pedal.

3pdt's switch by connecting the top row or bottom row to the middle row when you look at them with the solder terms horizontally.

99% of wiring diagrams are layed out that way. and most pedal builders layout their switches horizontally. I have a few fulltone pedals that have "sideways" (vertical) switch orientation but that is pretty much all I have seen like that.
