I don't have supply for good 3PDT switches here in EU, so that is reason why I am starting to use relays. I am using takamisawa at the moment and didn't have any problems.

Yeah, when I say I dropped it I mean I really dropped it, hard! Bout 6ft to be exact from a shelf right onto the concrete garage floor... I doubt most pedals are gonna see that kind of fall so, probably not an issue... I would like to get out my PIC programmer and make a soft touch momentary switch but it's been years since I programmed with it and I would have to learn it all over again... Not enough time in the day.

Oh I understand why relay stoped working :D
I am not programming PICs, I buy them programmed at the moment. But I am thinking of getting arduino one and try it by my self :D

Thanks for info. I am using currently musikding, but I just don't believe to those 3DPTs anymore..

Tayda Electronics ;) 3PDT switches are $2.99 a' pop, and they've got cheap shipping to EU. usually between $3 and $5 shipping for $15 worth of parts...

@ brejna

Checked the pdf and saw a 4PDT in your partlist.
Is this correct? :scratch:
Could I do it with a 3PTD this way?
https://app.box.com/s/n0pmsle75rngzdofi9yv

Allso the gain switch. Isn´t it a SPDT?

Want to order the parts.
Thanks for that awsome work!

Unfortunately it is 4pdt, you can use 3pdt but without LEDs. Gain pot is meant to be changed with that 4pdt and be carefull with the wiring, all square dots should be on the one side of switch.
Thanks for kind words and credits go JOK3RX, I just did layout :)

A lot of room still on that board... maybe include18v voltage doubler and maybe cab sim?

I could do that, if you have good sim-cab schematic send me and I'll add it along with voltage doubler

Is it related to the Tight Metal or to the AMT L1 Series?
