Distortion pedal project Answered
I was planning on making a motion detector with my roommates but that proved a difficult first project so now we have the plans for a distortion pedal for guitar.
Here is the design for it and here is where we are going to buy the equipment (except for the audio jacks which we bought at Radio Shack already).
Here are a couple of things we need to know first:
1) The plan calls for two 10uf electrolytic capacitors, and the store has those but of 5 varieties with different voltages, which ones should we get?
2) What kind of capacitors do we need? Ceramic disk?
3) The plans call for a 0.0056uF capacitor yet I couldn't find one like that, can I just substitute one similar? If so, which one?
4) If anyone wouldn't mind, could someone explain how this circuit works? Preferably answer the other questions, but I would like to learn how it works also.
Thanks a lot to all who answer!
