I had no idea they would be so bigThose oversized 1uF caps made it hard to assemble, hmmmmm?
I took the potentiometers off and retouch everything with my new iron. I was able to remove a lot of solder as well as get better connections. I had the faint workings of each potentiometer under neath a clean guitar but after unplugging and reconnecting everything it was gone. I am guessing that means I need to go everything connection again.All of those solder joints need to be retouched. Some look cold, most have too much solder on them. Bend the pots up (gently) so you can work underneath them. No point in making measurements until the board passes visual inspection.
a100k does not have a cover and was not the cause of the shortthat middle a100k pot above the pcb, does it have a dust cover like the others? I can seen them on the other five, might just be the angle though. If not it could be shorting out.
Oh, FFS, yep. Came here looking for IC voltages and I did the same thing with C8. With those other 3 1u there, it’s like when you read a sentence that’s missing a word and your brain just fills it in.I've put together a couple of these and made the same mistake both times. C8 is 1n not 1u, the wrong value here will lead to almost completely dry signal. Met someone one a facebook forum that made the same mistake, easy to miss
