wiring pots
« on: February 11, 2022, 12:14:05 PM »
Hi everyone!
I just got into pedal making and currently designing a scheme of a ts9 clone. And i kinda paranoid that i got everything wrong, especially pot wiring and power block. It would be cool if you could help me with that. Thanks in advance!
And also apologies for any mistakes in my speech :/

Welcome! Have a look at Madbean's Greenbean project PDF. He has pot leg numbers 1 and 3 labeled in the schematic.
