Ok, guitar pedals cannot be that hard to make. I have virtually some experience with electronics. How can you make your own pedals? I'm just wondering if I could try to make my own distortion or overdrive pedal (all the other FX seem to be allot of digital).

Is there a thread on this? or do any of you know how this is done?

Basically you'll need a schematic, which is like an electronic diagram of where to put all the capacitors, resisitors, etc. and all the components labeled on the schematic. Usually this includes potentiometers, wire, input jacks, and some type of enclosure ("box"). And of course you'll need a soldering iron!

Yep, I saw a thread for pedal schematics. But they were all for copyrighted pedals by companies. I dont want a clone, I just want a simple schematic for a usual pedal.
Is there any links for a site that supports these?

I looked under "make you own guitar pedal" and "DIY guitar pedals". Nothing simple came up. Just demos and clones.

build your own clone do them, they'll even sell you a kit (the designs are free, you don't have to buy their kits if you don't want)
