Introduction: Guitar Pedal

This is for generic pedal builds

Step 1: Collect Materials

Tools:

helping hands

Materials:

hammond 1590bb enclosure

solder

Step 2: Assemble Your Circuit

Prime your connections with solder flux. Solder your components to their appropriate positions.

Step 3: Prepare Your Enclosure

Drill holes for your switch, input and output jacks, led, pots etc. Add the components to their respective pre-drilled holes. add wires to the lugs of those components. I recommend color coding your power and in/output connections.

    Let me see if I have this correct. Your project is merely how to install your own guitar pedal circuit into a box? Is that correct? Because I didn't see any schematic diagram for the circuit otherwise.

    Precisely, bud. Why would I leak a perfectly good circuit?
