Damn thats a whole lotta pots!!!

I'm thinking about building another pedal but this time using rotary switches to change the values of the input/output caps.. The input cap is the more "important" cap since it sets the impedence for the whole circuit, right??

just a little tip tho.. try keeping your wires as short as possible. it makes everything easier


usually. I have to use tons of wire on the current Shivas because if I make them all tight and clean and pretty they dont self oscillate.

that shows the benifits of smaller wires.. unless your into oscillations... like aen, and me, and everyone else... :facepalm: :wha?: :thumb:
