So I'm building a Tube Screamer, and the IC socket isn't spaced far enough to put in to the holes I've dremeled (damn POS PCB layout). Could I just attach wires to each pin and connect the wires to where the socket would lead? This is the only solution I have, really.

Well yeah, connected is connected. It's kind of a cheesy way to go about it though. Make sure it's very secured and you have good connections if you do that. Don't half-ass it.

Alright, I know it'll look cheesy, but I'm concerned about it not working or something.

Yeap, but I used the layout at Tonepad.

Or I could just solder the socket like mentioned above. It won't kill the socket since it's just metal and plastic, and pop the IC in later. The IC is still safe.
