Hi Dan

Looks like a missing cut on Volume 3 row and an extra cut on Volume 2 row.  I'd probably give all the other cuts a clean too.  Lots of potential shorts with stray copper.

Well in all fairness, the actual research + development (in non-timmy clone pedals), renting a room, tools, people to churn out enough pedals, marketing, adds, giving them away to reviewers or artists, paying of a laser to aluminum printer, a stupid movietrailer, taxes, boxes, room for error etc adds up to a lot of costs

But yeah, the money I saved.. Or well, to be honest, all the money I'm saving by bilding it myself I use to make 4 times as many pedals as I would've bought ;)

Exactly what i thought loads of fun too just a quick question if i wanted more of a bass cut would i reduce the value of the pot or icrease it or is it a case of messing with the ciruit its self?
