I'm trying to build my first pedal (a simple booster pedal) and I'm having some trouble finding the .15uf capacitors.

At www.smallbearelec.com they have capacitors with mf and pf values. I'm assuming the pf values are pico farads, and those don't work. I'm not sure however, whether mf means micro farads (same as uf) or milli farads.

Could anyone clarify?

Thanks in advance!

Mouser has basically any cap value you're looking for. It's hard to find Silver Micas there though...
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.

Thanks a lot! I also didn't know how to type the Mu char.
And I'll be sure to check out Mouser.

What kind of termination style do I need the pot in? Solder lug?

I believe so. Jim will be of better assistance than I am with pots. I'm a Cap/Resistor guy (first person to tell me that pots are also resistors gets eviscerated )

Jim disappeared?

He had a post after mine that told you another way to get to the Character map (I believe it was start > run > charmap or something like that), and I posted the other route, but he deleted his post so it looked like I double posted

Which resistor type works better for the pedal, carbon film or carbon composition?

And thanks for all your help!

Is it okay to use 820 kohm instead of 830, because I can't find 830. Since there's a 5% tolerance, would it matter?

Thanks again! Wow, I don't know what I'd do without UG.

Could I switch the battery snap for a DC jack? If so which kind should I get? I really don't like having to deal with batteries.

On Mouser (which is where I'm getting the parts from now so thanks Shinozoku!) what is a stomp switch called? Stomp switch yields no results and the pushbuttons look kind of iffy.

Thanks again!
