Hey guys, I want to build an effects pedal. The only problem is I have 0 clue what the stuff on the schematics means. I know what a diode and resistor etc is. But idk what is what on the schematics. Can anyone show me a tutorial or anything? Thanks.

Where do you buy the stuff to build pedals? I'm interested in building one from scratch myself. Also, anyone have some good (free) schematics links?

GGG is amazing- the layouts are useful.

and small bear for parts, no doubt.

Boosters and fuzz pedals are fairly easy, you could start out with one of those.

I want to make me a nice overdrive with a touch of chorus and compression. Give me an older kind of tone, something cool i think

you realize you just picked three harder kinds of effects and stuck them together? and it's not like you can do half the circuit for a touch of the effect. it's all or nothing.

You can make a compressive overdrive for sure, adding some chorus requires a whole new chorus circuit.
