Building my first pedal, a 69 Stones pedal but am running into some problems. Some are caused by me and some might be from lack of pedal building knowledge and others might be my unfamiliarity of pedals (learning to play bass but wife wanted pedals for her guitar) and how much they effect the signal. Below is an image of the build and description of the problems. Let me know if you need more info or clarifications.
I soldered in the green LED wrong so when the pedal is bypassed the LED is on and when it is engaged the LED is off. Would this have an effect on the below?
Bass pot doesn’t do anything
Drive pot works, but the effect seems pretty subtle (not really sure if this pedal gets heavily overdriven)
Treble pot just seems to make things a bit brighter and scratchier
