After a few narrow misses over the decades, I finally got to see Phish recently and it was awesome. There were moments during the concert that really made me appreciate why I like their music. If I had to narrow it down to one pedal... for me and my relationship to Phish, it's the Digitech Whammy.

I would suggest that you try to identify what it is that you appreciate and what your internal relationship is to Trail Of Dead and see if it comes down to something that stands out as an identifiable thing that you would like to continue seeing them do

I think you have the relay sides reversed on your board. The datasheet shows a bottom view of the pins

What relay are you actually using? Your board has the footprint of a 10 pin and the NA5W-K pinout is a 10 pin but has the foot print of a 12 pin with pins 2 &11 missing

My understanding is that almost all switch popping is DC voltage present on the switch. You might take a multimeter and probe inward starting at the output jack to see if you detect any.

Are you getting 5V on pin1 of the PIC?
What about the PIC pin 2 to 8?

That is one impressive pedal

I think you have c1 on the 5v side rather than the 9v side of the regulator. Not sure if that matters

Might work out okay but doesn't the Lab Series arrangement end up with a +/- 15v supply?

I just checked  the doc on this and yes, that does seem to be the case. I didn't realize it uses a 9v AC adapter to get +/-25v and then regulates down to +/-15v. It seems like 18v supply into a 15v regulator plus an inverter would have been easier

Sorry Aion, not trying to go negative on you, just reporting my curiousity ;D

I just looked at it and those dc-dc converters are over $10 a pop. It seems a bit expensive for what it's trying accomplish. Cool idea to get just the right voltage, but not sure I'd want to go that route

The PP2+ and Trutone CS series supplies will output 12V on their ACA outputs. So that and something like the TC7662B like the VFE pedals use seems ideal

Here is another measurement you could take to help track it down.

From the SB build doc:
(Pin7 of the PIC is 0v in effect mode, 5v in bypass mode)

However, It sounds to me like you may have a stuck relay

V+ should be +9V
GND should be 0V
V- should be -9V

The LP2950 puts out +5V

Guessing that Q1 and Q2 are on the other side of the board.
Good point, but I don't see anything on the other side
