Thank you for the thoughtful, informative reply. Thank you also for the links. I’m here to learn and start filling in those holes I mentioned in my previous post. I actually built those amps (no PCB-all point to point wiring) before I ever attempted a pedal, which seems backwards compared to most of the DIY amp and/or pedal builders with whom I’ve dialogued. I do have my ways of doing things that are a result of trial and error in amp building; these methods may be inferior when it comes to pedal builds. So I’m open to learning different ways to accomplish a solid, dependable pedal build.
