Fading sound
« on: November 02, 2018, 08:01:13 PM »
-UPDATE-
Problem solved.  Bad solder joint.
--------


Hey all!  Just finished up my first build (have done tube amps in the past) and am having a problem.

I built the Angry Andy from FuzzDog's and it fired up right away.  Sounded great!  I took it back to the bench to
tighten a few nuts and can no longer get the pedal to operate correctly.

When I plug it in, I get about 5 seconds of sound then it abruptly fades out and I get a slight high pitch hum.

Not sure where to start debugging.  Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

-UPDATE-

Must have been a cold solder joint.  I reflowed a few of them and all it good!
