There are 3 things I am unsure of (what I tried):
The Volume 5k Potentiometer: I have tried adding a volume control to the schematic by placing the potentiometer parallel to the Dip Switch. But i am unsure whether this is what has to be done. Could someone help me clarify this?
The Distortion, The instructions stated that we could go up to 10uF but i have added an 8 tone dip switch with 22, 33 and 47 uF additional capacitors. Is this acceptable?
The GND I am completely unsure how to connect the earthing (ground). Do i connect the negative wire to the GND but wouldnt that just short the sleeve and the ring according to the schematic... EDIT: As indicated by Anonymous, the shortage will provide the GND.
I also added an led paired with a 470Ohm resistor parallel to the inputs to indicate whether it is working or not.
I am a novice guitar player and wanted to build a 0.5-1W amplifier for the same. but i have little previous experience in Electronics. I would be immensely grateful if somebody could guide me and help me out on this.
Thanks & Regards
