Yes I got the relay a little with my iron. I assume that if it were damaged it wouldn't turn the LED on or off?
I have those burned spots plotted out and I should be able to test them some time this week.
The bottom one is like that because I put in an electrolytic capacitor the wrong way and...
I haven't had time to do an audio trace. I do not hear any sound except for the sound the footswitch makes when pressing it.
I do have a follow up question- how would I use a multimeter to check the relay?
I've been having a streak of bad luck with builds lately. This is number 3 in a row that isn't working.
This is the Tracksuit by Effects Layouts. It's their take on the DRV.
It includes the relay bypass and buffer.
I am getting no audio when engaged or bypassed.
The relay is...
Just a little update.
I removed the boards with the jfets and installed some other ones direct on the pads. I am still not getting audio but I am getting the LED turning on and off with the switch.
I also have bypassed signal still. Just nothing when engaged.
I am going to do some testing with...
Thanks everyone for the encouragement. I am at least taking the weekend off from building/working on anything.
I was really hopeful that this would be my answer to not buying a Rockerverb but as many have stated, the circuit itself is flawed.
I think that maybe GuitarPCB Mania projects aren't...
Okay I'm sorry this became a 6 page thread.
My voltages are all over the place now.
I swapped the trim pots because I couldn't get it low enough to 4.5v. Now, when I test Q1 the lowest I can set the voltage is 6.3.
I think I am going to put this one on the shelf for at least a few days and...
I forgot that I originally had the trimpot for the Gain+ and the trimpot for Q1 mixed up and I did have to remove them/swap them.
So, it is possible that I messed something up when I did that swap. How can I test?
The only things I have removed
Okay to clarify, the only component I have removed from the original build is c10.
I get continuity when testing from the leg of the component on the adapter board to the corresponding pads on the adapter board and the back side of the main PCB. There is no...
