- I put the entire pedal together but soon after realized that I had two resistors in the wrong place. While un-soldering the components, I managed to mangle and destroy the switch and power jack (where the 9V power supply plugs in to). I bought a new AC adapter power jack from radioshack (see figure 1 below, I'm almost positive it is the correct size, but I just ordered a few from BYOC... should be here by the end of the week) and two new switches online. The switches that I ordered, (to the best of my knowledge) are the correct single pull, double throw switches. Re-soldered everything together, re-flowed all the solder joints... I put it all together again and no luck!
When the amp is ON, guitar is plugged in and the pedal is NOT on (or plugged in to power), I get a perfectly good signal (I'm assuming that means the "true-bypass" is working/wired correctly)
When I plug the pedal's power supply in (while the amp is ON), I get a loud hum. This goes away after about 10 seconds. (I think this may be from the metal power jack causing a ground short?)
After the hum goes away, i test each position of the trim pot. They all allow a signal through, but the volume is very low (even with the potentiometer turned all the way up.
And most importantly, the LED does not work in any of the positions
The images could not be uploaded for some reason (I checked file size, but still... ?). So here they are... http://s1125.photobucket.com/albums/l589/fishernj/BYOC%20Tri-Boost%20Kit/
Any comments/guidance is greatly appreciated!
