FOUR HORSEMEN GUTS & V1 SCHEMATIC

here is a 4H i built up for a very patient member of FSB. I think it turned out pretty well! below that is the latest schematic with the output buffer added. click on the image or link to see them fully. such is the way when blogging from your phone!

I really kinda dig this layout, too. it gives the user the option of positioning the pedal vertically, with both jacks on one side(saving space), or horizontally, with top mounted jacks. the knobs on the front side keep them well out of the way of the stomping foot, which also leaves a nice canvas for whatever graphics might be used. sooner or later, I'll have to decide on a form factor and stick with it, but as of right now, every new pedal is a different challenge. I'm kind of looking forward to the day when I don't have to measure everything out for the new box, knobs, and layout I'm using, but it's definitely helping me get my chops up.

btw- I have since separated the battery wire from the input cable. even though it's shielded, and I heard no hum, I wanted to be sure, and it's just good practice.
