Introduction: Guitar Kill Switch and Volume Stomp Box
This is really easy to make, cheap and quite useful. Its also good because it requires no power supply.
I have shown pictures of it on bread board, but use strip board and solder if you are going to keep it.
Using the resistors and capacitors somehow stopped my amp from buzzing as well.
This is essentially a wired remote control for your amp, the kill switch stops any sound from the guitar going to the amp until it is pushed again and there is a volume control too.
I used my phone so the pictures are bad quality, sorry.
*I soldered the foot switch, potentiometer and jack sockets first*
Step 1: Get Equipment
You will need
strip board or breadboard
lengths of wire for strip board (and some components) and breadboard jumpers if using breadboard
2x mono jack sockets
DPTD heavy duty latching foot switch
2x 470r resistors
2x 10uf capacitors
optional project box
Step 2: How I Wired the Potentiometer
solder wires to two of the poles
Step 3: How I Wired the Jack Sockets
solder a wire to each hole
Step 4: How I Wired the Foot Switch
solder a wire to the middle and left or right front poles
Step 5: Step 1
Get the breadboard or strip board and put two jumpers or wires in the middle.
Step 6: Step 1.5
if you are using strip board cut the copper in between the two wires
Step 7: 2
add the capacitors
Step 8: 3
add the resistors
Step 9: 4
add the potentiometer's two wires next to each other after the resistors
Step 10: 5
add the foot switch the same way as the potentiometer but before the capacitors
Step 11: 6
add the jack sockets on each side
Step 12: 6.5
drill holes in the project box and insert the correct components
Step 13: 7
You have finished. Test it, then
You ready to put on your pedal board.
