    Ok, so I bought a really cheap pedal kit just as a learning tool. I have done some soldering, but never on a PCB before. The bypass works, but clicking the switch gives me no sound and then it gives me a loud pop when I switch back to the bypass. Is there something obvious I'm missing before I start pulling my hair out? Maybe a capacitor in backwards?

    I tested the switch and have been doing basic continuity checks all across the board. I just wanted to ask the experienced folks here before I run around in circles on my own.

    Dangit, never mind. Just checked the wiring diagram again and I got all of the potentiometers wired backwards. Awesome. I will rectify at work tomorrow.
