Hey there!
which bugcrusher schematic have you been looking at exactly (there are a couple different ones). maybe I can help you with them, since the schematic for this pedal here is quite a bit more complex.

well one of the schematics I found was
the one from "The Squarewave Parade".
It's a Perfboard layout and it kind
of bothers me, cause I can't figure
it out... I'm just so used to work
with vero boards, or strip boards.
It has taken me quite a while figuring
this thing out even though it
looks really simple :P...

Then I found another one from somewhere.
Can't find it again.
Do you know of any
other layouts? Maybe a Stripboard

thanks for the help! :)

I came across your site while searching for SRR/Bit Crushing guitar pedals and was wondering if you would be willing to make another one to sell?

Thank You,

well, i finally got it together. But I did not have the 22pF so I put a
10µF instead. I tried it out and it
doesn't alter the sound at all.
Is it because the 10µF? or do you
have to do something more than is
shown on the Schematic?
