    Hope this is the right section...

    I've got some pedals that I'd rather not have in my signal chain full-time, so I was looking at bypass boxes and couldn't really find one to do what I wanted for sensible money.

    I figure a couple of bypassable loops with volume pots on them should be an easy build even for a knows-nothing-about-electronics guy like me, but are there any plans for this sort of thing available online? I've seen a few distortion pedal designs around, but not just an unpowered (presumably?) switch box like this.

    Idiot-proof advice much appreciated!
  2. I've been playing around with the DIY Layout Creator from diystompboxes.

    Can anyone tell me if this looks okay for a passive, non-LED, non-volume bypass pedal?
