This is a forum first i'm pretty sure!

Unfortunately I'm not if we do have any guitar enthusiasts - are you planning on making one yourself or perhaps modifying one?

Well Ive started out with the basic distortion pedal using just an opamp pretty much. Ive been thinking of slowly bumping up slowly until reaching the more difficult ones like the delay pedal which used a bunch of digital circuitry I believe. After I have a decent set of pedals Id like to build some system or circuit to set them up together and have control of the settings of each.

All this is of course for when I have time but if there is anyone out here with similar interests it would be good to know

thanks

You could use all sorts of analog circuitry as well - maybe some capacitors and inductors to create a delay and some BJT amplifiers for amplification and distortion :)
