    Hi Simon,

    I had the same thought...alas my mates tube amp (and my only easy access to one) had died recently so I couldn't run the test.

    You are right though about the volume, its only when the volume is turned up max with max gain does it do it. you only have to back the volume off just a fraction (not even very low) and it sounds sweet.

    I'll double check the A and B type pots when i get some time.

    right so actually nothing wrong with the pedal. I just used cheap jacks and the hot tip had spun inside the box so it was touching the earth.

    I better start thinking of ways to put a finish on the pedal.

    Whats cheap and easy? rattle cans?

    Yep, rattle cans are cheap and easy enough, and I got pretty good results with that on some of my DIY pedals, you'll need to buy yourself a can of the colour spray-paint you want to use, a can of White Knight Clear Gloss Lacquer, and if you're using a diecast aluminium box from Jaycar Electronics as your enclosure for the pedal, a can of grey etch primer, another thing you might also want to buy is some sheets of rub-on lettering which you can use to do the labeling.


    You can buy the spray paint, clear lacquer, and etch primer from your local big green shed.


    Seeing as I'm going to be giving my two DIY Tonebender pedals a new paint-job soon, I might see if I can do a mini-tutorial on spray-painting/labeling DIY pedals, since I'm guessing that it'll be of great interest to DIY pedal builders.


    Actually, if there are any forum members who are interested in me doing a mini-tutorial on spray painting/labeling DIY pedals, feel free to let me know.

    Ahh the joys of cheap jacks. Good to hear you got it working.

    I think I may have done that in the past, wired a pot backwards, all you need to do is swap the two outer-wires around and it should work correctly.

    Looking pretty good there Andy, so what colour do you think you'll go with for that pedal?
