guitar stompbox

I used to play the guitar a lot when I was younger, but haven’t done much since my kids were born. I recently pulled out all of my gear and thought it might be fun to try to make my own effects pedal.

I came across an article on building your own stompboxes and thought I’d give it a shot. Here is the schematic from the article.


I built the circuit on a small breadboard. It is a very simple circuit and it does work, but it doesn’t sound all that great.



Overall, it was a fun experiment and I think I will try to come up with my own circuits and build my own pedals in the future.
