Well i've found a schematic for a Zvex Fuzz Factory and i want to build it (Yes i like Muse and i've wanted a Fuzz for a while) and hopefuly i can do it.

- i have some electronics knowledge, i take lessons for it at school. And i've changed pickups in my guitar and stuff so i can work myself around a soldering iron.

i just have some questions. (the schematic is below.)
- i have no clue where to put the switch in the diagram. i'd like to wire it for True Bypass but i've never built a pedal so do bare with me here.
- i'm going to need some help in transferring this to veroboard because i don't have any resources to make a PCB.

Link to schemmy

Cheers, Tom

yeah its a schematic for a tube screamer, but the bypass and input jacks and everything will be exactly the same...

yeah, you have an input signal and an output signal from the circuit board, and an LED that comes from some power source onto the bypass so when you switch it the LED goes to ground letting the current flow through it and light it...

but yeah, it'll work fine

on the BYOC forum there is an entire thread on it, there is a layout and everything, and veroboard layouts, here are the links:
