I have a blue clipper pedal sitting on my breadboard right now but the damn thing doest work. I know some signal is getting through because when i play i can hear my faintly hear my guitar but it makes a shit load of noise.

So... What can i do about it? I think it might be the capacitors. They were salvaged so they might be ****ed from heat damage from my soldering iron.

Heres the schematic im using.

Yeah really useful post mate!! well done.

If you have used old caps then it possibly is them that are failing. How old were they before you re used them?

Lets see... I pulled them out of a radio about 8 months ago, maybe longer, and the radio was about 2-3 years old as far as i know.

I'll have to rummage through my stuff for some new ones.

Caps are cheap, and the blue clipper isn't a complex circuit

sounds like you need to hit up Small Bear or Pedal Parts Plus

Also if the caps are polarized make sure they aren't backwards in the circuit

You haven't built the circuit correctly simple as that...

Either you don't understand how the connections of a BB work, a component is backwards, something is not grounded...etc.

I'll rebuild it today.
