Well, I have started building a Bass Fuss pedal and I have the circuit board made, and everything wired. but I get no sound when I plug in. Ive gone over and double checked everything and it all seems right. There was one wierd thing though, when I used a circuit tester ( a little pen with a light in it conected to a wire and an aligator clip) I got light until i got past the first resistor. I took the resistor out and checked it, and when its buy its self, power goes through it, but in the circuit nothing. Could anybody help please?

Here is a link to the schematic because the smallest I can get the picture to is 54kb and there is a 50kb max :P

^That circuit tester won't work, the 22k resistor from V+ is too high. Board picture?


To post a picture, just put the image url in [*IMG]URL GOES HERE[/*IMG] tags. Take out the stars though.

I just thought of something else, if I resoldered the wires to the DPDT switch as if I'ld rotated the switch 180 degrees would that make a difference?

^No, 180 degrees won't make a difference. 90 degrees will though.

And that resistor should be like that, its just causing the circuit tester not to work. All I can say is check over your wiring, or make an audio probe:

Pictures of your circuit board would help.

Ill have to wait till sunday to check everything over again, Ill try to get some pics too if I cant get it. Thanks.
