deadringer boost switch problem
« on: February 21, 2011, 01:46:34 PM »
Hey everyone i have hopefully an easy problem.  I built the deadringer and it sounds great but the boost side is engaged when the led is off and is not engaged when the led is on.  It is more of an annoyance than anything.  I'll try and post pics but ive checked numerous times aginst the diagram and brians picture of his that was built and it all checks out.  so i was hoping someone might know a quick fix without a pic first.

That just means you have the LED wired to the wrong side of the switch's pole. If you have the LED connected to the top lug of the switch pole, move it to the bottom, or vice versa.
