So many, many times when people ask toubleshooting questions the seasoned pro's will start by asking things like, "Is your guitar plugged in?" and other veterens laugh, and the newbies feel insulted... Well, the reason why they start there IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALL DONE IT at some point, the reason they laugh is because the felt stupid at some point for forgetting to plug in the guitar too. Last night I'm troubleshooting my latest build, Wampler Ecstacy clone... I'd been checking it on and off for about a week whenever I had time... Can't figure out what's wrong, checked every joint, replaced componants that held any suspicion... just about to scrap the board and start fresh... And I notice the IC is not oriented correctly... should have spotted that in the first 5 minutes... so I fix it, but now I'm getting a strange hiss and odd volume behavior... another 45 minutes of audio probing to look down and see that, because I had the box turned over, I had plugged the input of the pedal into my amp... and all I could do was laugh at myself. Here's the finally finished product. Complete with psychedlic, glow-in-the-dark paint for those dark stages. Sounds Great! I definitely recommend the Wampler Ecstacy or Euphoria (currently)!
