I had recently finished soldering everything and preparing the enclosure. To test it, I plugged in my electric guitar and amp. The bypass / clean sound works perfectly — but turning it on didn’t give me any sound anymore. The LED turned on, but even adjusting each of the knobs didn’t result in any sound.
I went back and thought about what might be causing it — and realized that when i soldered wires to the potentiometers, I let them poke up until the box. Well, the box itself is metal… so that must’ve been shorting things! So I loosened the pots and plugged in my guitar:
I’ll snipped off the excess, added electrical tape to hopefully prevent further shorts with the box, and tightened everything up. I’m still getting an issue if I tighten the bottom of the box all the way in, but if I give it a little slack, the pedal seems to work brilliantly!
