Greetings!

Well I got the BB wired and working. Sounded pretty darn good, no buzzing humming or anything like that either.

But, I had the pots wired backwards. Ok, solder remover thingee, re-wired it and nothing. Upon close examination with a jewelers loop I had burned the pcb pretty bad, at #3 of the drive solder point. Tried to jump r6 to it with a resistor lead, but it was gorked. Oh yeah so were the other two pot solder points. dang…

But it worked! So I’m really glad about that, not so glad about the burned out pcb. I will order another one and also the Ancestral Apparition – I’ve got the bug!
