    More volume from Sherwood?

    Nope. That will not make it louder. Changing R12 from 150K to something higher will increase the output.

    Kliché Mini Noob Issues

    I forgot that pedal has a buffer. Do you have an audio probe? Plenty of discussion on the forums here about making them and using them. You should be getting the effected signal on S3 and the buffered signal on S1. The footswitch alternates connecting S2 to those two sources. I would...

    Kliché Mini Noob Issues

    when you are getting sound with both positions for the footswitch, unplug the power from the pedal and see if you are still getting sound in both positions. goal is to confirm that the circuit is really switching to the PCB when the switch is activated and also taking the bypass out of the circuit.

    Abyss Univibe - tone is off

    Given that things are kinda sorta working but not well, I suggest following the general advice -- post detailed pictures of both sides of the board that are clear enough to check the part values. then others can assist while you verify the parts values are correct yourself. Do you have one of...

    Happy Birthd(el)ay To Me!— 23 Skidoo (Modified Chalumeau)

    Best birthday wishes BNB! That is a very fun and well-designed enclosure. I had my 3rd 22nd birthday a few months ago. Not sure it was 3 times better than the first one, but no complaints. Hope your semester wraps up to your satisfaction too.

    Abyss Univibe - tone is off

    you may not be getting a dry signal mixed with the wet signal -- that is the difference between the two sounds. you obviously have signal going through the pulse path, so use your DMM to see if you have continuity from IC1, pin 1 to R14, from R14 to IC1, pin5. Do you hear changes in the...

    The Fingers Overdrive Mockup Pedal

    Might be original, which is intriguing to say the least.

    ACID RAIN Fuzz

    Thanks for the narrative too. It resonates with me and probably others as well.

    Hotlanta

    one little twist is often much more than we see on a lot of rebranded "innovative" pedals.

    Zz Top in a box - The Eliminator

    most pedal makers think they should have more protection over the copying of the pedal functionality than is probably the case. as noted, easier to claim some protected ownership over pedal name and design (assuming they are not already infringing someone else's work...) but social media is...

    Hotlanta

    The videos for the Hotlanta pedal sound good. One gut shot midway through the first video on the product page shows one IC and a lot of diodes, plus assorted MLCC caps. Should be interesting to learn more about the circuit.

    Zz Top in a box - The Eliminator

    Seems like there is a lot Hot South branding there. Quite a range of products too -- pedals, guitar strings, amps, speaker parts and even pickups. Seems to be just missing some Sweet Tea and Moonshine.

    Zz Top in a box - The Eliminator

    interesting to see that some text on the pedal board was obliterated. I wonder if it is built on the same board as the company's "Medicine Man" pedal -- looks like the same layout for 3 pots and the LED. https://www.mlapedals.com/store/The-Medicine-Man-p243352079

    Zz Top in a box - The Eliminator

    The other pedal doesn't say ZZ Top on it, but seems to be a very similar high gain sizzler. Easy enough to find some audio demos with a youtube search. Also some info in the vero build for v2 of that pedal.

    Cepheid chorus noisy LFO

    I think powering down the pedal is likely to be asking for a pop in the circuit when it is powered on. also might have some noticeable delay for the LFO to stabilize. but you might be able to use a 4pdt to stop the LFO without powering down the circuit. have you tried shielding the...
