I guess this forum is mainly for guitar wiring but I have to share my excitement!! I made my first effect pedal today and it was my first time at soldering a circuit!
I made a 5th Gear Overdrive from a schematic in the DIYstompboxes forum and even managed to install it into a box, complete with LED (LED Trick circuit) with DPDT switch, Ins and Outs and gain + volume pots. And....IT WORKS!! ;D
I guess what makes it even more exciting is I made the Vero Layout myself, from looking at the schematic.
I know I'll look back at this post in the future and laugh about this excitement thing, but building something so simple like that from scratch and hearing it work is a great feeling.
The sound is a little "Santana", kinda like a wah on in the heel position, but I am keen to mod it until I get the right sound.
Anyway, the high is wearing down now Better make something else.....

"It is ALIVE! Bwa ha ha ha haaaa!" (Sorry, Shane, couldn't resist.) Ya done good, especially to have it work "first try." And the enthusiasm -- I mean, the needle on your meter avatar was "pegged." Wishing you many more, equally enjoyable, projects.
