I know its a pretty basic build but I'm pretty proud, it being my first layout come to life. I also like that i was able to get it inside the small enclosure.

Next to a Boss for size reference

I got these and they work GREAT on smallbear wire. They don't work at all on teflon wire. They really do save alot of time and work really well but only get them if you don't use teflon wire.

sweet build ;)

I don't know the answer to your question, but i will in a couple of weeks  :D I'll be away and not able to work on it for the next two weeks. IF you haven't started by then I'll have a answer for ya. I didn't do it for any "tonal" reasons, but because that's just what i had around at the time. I figured if it didn't work out its only 7 caps.

there is a pic of the 2001 pcb version, I don't know if it has changed since then. about halfway down

Do you mean 'how do you remove flux residue after soldering?'

If so, a toothbrush, some rubbing alcohol or acetone, and some paper towel. Apply in the way that makes sense to you.


yes that's what I mean :) I've tried the rubbing alchol but it leaves a white residue. I will give acetone a try.

I know it's not necessary but it helps with debugging and it just looks better. I haven't found a way I like yet.

I can't really answer either question with much authority but generally a buffer is most desirable at the front or the end of your chain. Buffers can help with "tone suck" but they can also color your sound (this can be a good or a bad thing depending on your ears.) Well until someone a little more knowledgeable than me comes along here is a link for a little reading. Good luck.

From General Guitar Gadgets

What does a Buffer do?

Your signal chain is everything between your guitar and amplifier input, including cables. As your signal chain gets more complex (adding more stompboxes and patch cables) you may start to notice a loss of treble in your guitar sound. Your sound may sound much more dull than it does when you plug guitar straight into the amp with a short cable. Check out this Information about Impedance and Buffers for some information on why this happens.

This Pete Cornish Case against True Bypass Article may do something to explain why a little buffer stompbox may be something useful to you. I believe there is  "A Case For True Bypass" as well, but the article might give you a good idea of what a buffer can do in your signal chain.

Please note that almost all Boss, some Ibanez and some other commercial pedals use a non-bypassed buffer. This means if you have a Boss pedal in your signal chain, then you probably already have a buffer in signal path even when the pedal is in bypass mode.

Thanks Brian, that will save me alot of trouble  :)
