    when you refer to the resistor values in the parts lists what value are you referring to when you spec 2k4 or 2k3 etc. thanks,i don’t want to assume and buy the wrong values thanks

    Alright George that’s all explained in the beginners guide to components on the guides page here

    https://guitarpcb.com/forums/topic/pedal-building-guides-mandatory-reading/

    The letter is used instead of a decimal point which can often be missed, it’s used mainly for capacitor and resistor values and sometimes for potentiometer values

    2K2 for example would be a 2.2 kilo ohm resistor 4N7 a 4.7 nf film capacitor and 2U2 a 2.2 uf electrolytic capacitor

    As you can see with the decimal points above it could be easily missed especially on schematics and parts lists
