So here is what I have done over the last few days. Picture at the bottom…. I pulled ALL the wires off of the board and 3PDT board because they were very short and I thought it would help to make new wires. So I made ALL new wires that were 5 inches each with new solid core wire. No change at all. I then decide to remove the 3PDT board and take a separate switch I had and wire it directly in to see if possibly the 3PDT board was a problem. Again no change. I get clean guitar sound in bypass mode, but when I hit the switch I get nothing. If I mess with things long enough I can get a “sound” of the engaged side. But nothing usable.
So I dug out an old audio probe that I had from many years ago…. and of course… I broke it. I am going to order another female plug so I can make another one. But for now, I have to wait on trying the audio probe for the key part to get here.
And to answer your question… yes this is a kit from pedalpartsandkits.com.
When I made my new wires I verified that I had the correct values for each pot. I also was able to test each pot. When I mentioned that I got a “sound” with the switch engaged, I was able to get enough of a noise to turn the pots enough to try to tell if they functioned… and I DID get results out of each pot. So I feel like the pots are correct.
I got super frustrated the other night until I dealt with the issue I was having with trying to fit 22 gauge wire into the board holds, so I was afraid I had ruined some of the connector holes. I ordered new 24 gauge wire and things fit much easier now. Just in case I did screw up the board I went ahead and ordered another Boogie57 PCB from Barry. It is in pre-shipment with USPS so hopefully, it is here later this week. So when you look at the board solder joints, I realize they look like crap because I have added and removed them over and over white testing and trying different things, plus other frustrations have left those joints not looking too great and I am aware of those.
So here are two pictures from this weekend.
