Re: Echo bender noise from feedback and dry pots (edit)

Whilst you wait for the multimeter to arrive, run a knife along the gaps between the rows. It could be a bad pot but it's probably a short somewhere, perhaps a little solder bridge or a cut that isn't fully complete. I'd focus first on the rows connected to the feedback pot.
Once you have a multimeter, double check your cuts and links are all correct using the continuity setting, and yes, post your voltages from the ICs.
