Frequent questions about dead or faulty pedals. Whether you repair, mod or build pedals, debugging is important. Threads about general debugging problems irrespective of the circuit involved...

My Pitch Pirate is pirating my pitch

Postby ElSpeakoDelSpanisho » 05 Sep 2014, 21:51

I've double, triple checked for solder/flux bridges between the traces. Still no sound when engaged, only my clean tone when bypassed. The 5mm LED on the board doesn't light up at all when turned on, but the PT2399 gets a bit hot to the touch. That's it. I have no IC voltage ratings since I don't really care about this pedal a lot, but if someone wants them I can go measure it.

Here's a link to the photo album. The voltage regulator in the pictures is NOT the one in there currently; it's now a 78L05, with the traditional transistor shape to it.

Have you tried using an audio probe to trace out the signal path to see where you're losing signal?...... :hmmm:

Wow, I totally forgot I even made this thread. I just remembered five minutes ago.

I haven't probed it yet, I'll try when I have time.
