Love this project!! I purchased a 6" x ~20x~18" chunk of scrap yard "mystery metal" (presumably some soft structural stuff) a while ago, and cut material for feet, a horn, and a pyramid heel. It's been sitting there for at least 6 years now :-( How is it holding up? I'm curious about a welded on top, vs. another common method, hard facing the mild steel. The heavy structural welding I think I can handle (I was going to pre and post heat with weed burners and forge burners), but it's the hard top that concerned me. And moving that monster chunk without a hernia, but that isn't your problem :-) Cool work. She's a beauty!!
I did some further reading, and it seems like the method was first described by Da Vinci!

Hi Honio. You can indeed just tie the diode and resistor outputs together. When you select, for example, the resistor output on the switch, the diodes (which are before the switch) are no longer in the circuit. Then, wire it something like this: I'm not sure what would be a good value for the potentiometer? The output voltage is fairly hot (a little over a volt) so probably a 500K pot would be a good starting place? Let me know if it works. Did you build the circuit yet? It's a lot of fun to mess with. http://guitarwiring.blogspot.com/2011/02/simple-guitar-wiring-for-volume-pedal.html
