Custom Tube Screamer Build Log

Here's a build log, for anyone who's interested, of my tube screamer I'm working on. It's basically a TS808 clone but with plenty of modifications.
First off, it's going to be true-bypass (a requirement for all my pedals). I'm also going to have a gain boost with a separate footswitch and LED indicator and an "amount" knob. Then there's going to be a toggle switch that switches between standard diodes or red LEDs in the clipping section of the circuit; there'll also be a third position on the switch that lifts the diodes so I can use the pedal as a clean boost. A second toggle switch will select standard or asymmetrical clipping, and a third switch will flatten out the tube screamer mid-hump.

Here's my PCB from General Guitar Gadgets:

Here's some pics of my parts:

A quick mock up of about what it should look like:

Can anyone tell me how to get my pictures to appear in the post so you don't have to click on a link to see them?

You need to get the direct URL to the JPEG image (not the Google Drive page) and then put that URL inside [IMG] [/IMG] tags.

Like this, but without the blank spaces:

[IMG]http: //www.xyz.com /123.jpg[/IMG]

Here's the circuit board with most of the components soldered on. This took a lot longer than it should have because my soldering iron has been acting up .

Because you're still trying to link to the Google Drive page for your image.
Like I told you befrore, you have to use the URL ending in "*.jpg" for the [IMG] [/IMG] tags to work. Use a different host, like Tinypic, for example.

Thanks for your help; sorry I'm so dense. I'll do that next time.
