Hey guys...built the Silver Pony 2 and love it. Metal flaked the case and it sounds good but problem is there is only one sound that comes out of unit, even when I operate the 3 way switch. Enclosed are photos. ThanksImageImage

I would want to see a less blurry photo of the solder side of the PCB under the toggle switch and clipping diodes.

Also, it may be helpful to know that there effect of changing those clipping diodes is on the gain of the pedal, so if you do not have the gain pot turned up very far, you're unlikely to hear much difference. This is true on most dirt pedals with clipping toggles, but it is doubly true in this circuit, where the gain knob is also a mix knob. How high is the gain turn up when you test this pedal?

Glad I could help! It's a pretty common issue, especially with a pedal that a lot of people use as a "clean" boost.

Happy playing!
