i'm building a tubescreamer clone, and was wondering how to solder on an op amp or the socket. The op amp used is a jrc4558d. When a schematic has only certain numbers on the op amp symbol, do you just solder those pins, or do you solder all 8 pins to the board??
thanks for all the help.

You HAVE to sodder all pins in, it says so in the schematic.
! is where the black dot is, 2 is next to it ect....
