As far as I can tell, none of the pins are grounded. That would solve the issue right there.

I think I just need to put in a 3dpt switch and add a ground and LED connection. I was playing the pedal this weekend and it seems pretty important to know visually when the tone bypass is on.

This worked! You can see that the board has space for a PCB mounted dpdt switch. I just ran wires to a dpdt footswitch so that I can have easier access.

Are you saying to add a ground to Lug 4 of the dpdt switch?

Gonna just bump this. I have the pedal together. I ended up using a dpdt stomp switch for the tone. I can't figure out how to make the LED ground when the switch is engaged or not engaged.

3dpt switch might have been better, but just didn't end up using it. The dpdt switch doesn't ground, right? I'd have to find a component that grounds off of the switch, right?

Open Discussion / How to wire a blend pot for caps?
« on: June 22, 2021, 07:09:11 PM »
Hi all,

Im working on a mudbunny and Id like to be able to switch between two cap values for flat or bumped mids. Ive figured out the values Id like to use. However, I dont have enough room in the enclosure for a switch. Id like to use a pot instead as that will fit above the board and I can have a nice 2x2 knob layout.

Can someone tell me if I have the wiring idea down? I believe that Id wire the input from the board to the center lug of a 100k pot. One leg of each cap would go on lugs 1 and 3. The remaining legs would be joined and the output wire back to the board would come off of this.

Does that sound right?

The two position DIP switch is internal... you pick what tone you want there but the dpdt turns it all on or off. I just want the LED to indicate if it's on or off, not what part of the DIP switch is engaged.

There's a new 2020 mudbunny with a tone bypass. It's a part of the PCB:



I think this may be the way to do it... from Beavis audio:

Does that look right?

Does anyone know if there is a way to add an led to the dpdt tone wicker switch? Im going to put mine on a footswitch and wanted to add an led so youd know its engaged from a distance.

Thanks Im advance!

General Questions / Re: mudbunny desoldering blues!
« on: June 03, 2021, 12:54:02 PM »
Will doone pad came out when I removed a poti think i jumpered that one correctly.

Still, somethings not right. If the sustain isnt on a little bit you get no signal and the signal that comes through is ALL distorted and kind of gated.

General Questions / mudbunny desoldering blues!
« on: June 03, 2021, 11:37:51 AM »
Had a plan and just a little free time to mod an old mudbunny to civil war specs, change the tone stack for more mids, and switch out the transistors for low HFE ones.

Wouldn't you know it, I wreaked total havoc on the thing desoldering the old components! Had to order a new board from Brian today and will just start fresh.

Nothing really to add here... just venting. You have a plan and a limited amount of time and you think it's going to be exactly what you want and you just need to keep plugging away.

I think I can actually get the damaged board working, I'm just going to need to trace the signal from start to finish. And will want to do a remake anyway as it's a little frankenstined.

Open Discussion / Re: Delay Suggestions
« on: May 25, 2021, 09:10:56 AM »
I have recently started using delay on bass. I have an old rebote that I've been using for just a short, "almost reverb but not reverb" type delay. It sounds a little digital to me, but is that a function of that short of a delay? If I used a more analog delay, would it sound more organic?
