    • How to Make a FX Pedal For a Guitar Kirk Smoot EDUC 373
    • Experience
      • My experience with guitar FX pedals is that I use them often when playing guitar
      • Sense I use them so often I wanted to learn how to make my own
      • I have never made a guitar pedal before, and therefore have no idea what goes into putting one of these together
    • Questions
      • What materials are needed to make a pedal?
      • How will it sound when finished?
      • What will work best to put the circuit in?
    • Indicator Connections
      • 4.2.3 Make simple and safe electrical connections with various plugs, sockets, and terminals
      • 4.6.1 Demonstrate that in an object consisting of many parts, the parts usually influence or interact with one another.
    • Materials
      • A Schematic
      • A PC board
      • 5 Resistors
      • 1 Transistor
      • 2 Capacitors
      • Metal Box incasing
      • 22 gauge wire
      • Soldering Iron
    • Step 1
      • The first thing you will need to do is get all the materials need
      • Then you should assemble the circuit
      • Before soldering it together it would be a good idea to just line it up in the proper place or else you will have resistors burn up.
    • Step 2
      • Take the metal box, and then drill the holes in it for where you will screw it in.
      • Also drill holes in the places where you will be putting the knobs and buttons for this pedal to work
    • Step 3
      • In making this pedal you do not have to do this, but you can also make a design to put on the pedal.
      • It might be a fun idea to make it stand out as your own.
    • Step 4
      • The final step is to place the circuit into the box, and screw the bottom of the box onto the top to make have your finished product
