Russian Large Beaver Build. Sounds great but the tone bypass switch is flaky It either turns the pedal off or stays in bypass in both directions of the switch. I remember thinking the rocker felt weird before I installed it. I reflowed it a couple times.

Looks great, nice work!

It sounds like you might have a faulty toggle switch—it might be worth replacing that. If it was dodgy before you applied any heat to it, you could request a replacement from sales@buildyourownclone.com. You could test it with a multimeter and reflow the solder joints on it one more time, although the quality of your soldering looks solid.
