Lets say I built this pedal




Could I damage my guitar, or amp if there was something wrong with it?

Lets say it got to be a more complicated effects pedal, would there be any danger to my amp/guitar?

no there shouldnt be any damage if something goes wrong. but it depends on what you add. Hopefully no tubes, or that may damage, and I know that capacitors hold power so maybe if you have a lot of high value capacitors not connected right.

No probably not, people tweak with their pedals all the time. But if it breaks your stuff i'll take the blame. Hope it works..........

a simple distortion or overdrive pedal just. Thanks for help everyone so far

a simple overdrive or distortion should be fine. maybe you should be a little more specific so some people can give you suggestions since its your first build (from what I can tell).

No harm can be done.

except if you build the schemactic you posted in the first post, unless you use a bipolar power supply, you're going to be clipping off the bottom half of the signal, which probably wouldn't sound too goo
