Love your enclosure artwork! Very distinctive. It's obvious that you put a lot of planning & effort into that! :mrgreen:

Where are the three 10uf electrolytic caps for the open spots I've marked on your photo below? Those are needed to support the +18V/-9V function of the charge pump.

Also, the one 10uf electrolytic cap you have installed is fine as is for use with the smaller boost modules, like the LPB you have installed, but will interfere with inserting any of the larger ones. To use any of those, you will need to lay that cap over on its side like the 47uf cap next to it.

Wow, that's pretty amazing that you spotted that, and know exactly what those are for. At least it actually still works! I mean, if I flip it to 18v, it still works, maybe its just acting the same as it does on 9v setting tho.

Luckily, I still have those caps. So I bought this kit way back at the beginning of the year, I put most of it together (but not completed/functional). Then I asked a friend if he wanted to do the artwork. Well that took a long time and I finally got the enclosure back last week and put it together. I'm not sure how I missed those pieces initially, and it should have tipped me off that I had extra parts, but I kinda figured they were from some other project and got mixed in or something, I was pretty sure I finished all the steps.

I made a couple other errors too. I didn't realize that one of the small switches was on-on, and the others were on-off-on, and so the 9v/18v has an on-off-on switch, and the mid-q has on-on. So basically I don't have the "narrow" option for that. I also meant to have the blue/red LEDs opposite of how they are, but that's just cosmetic.

So I've been hesitant to pull it back apart, but now I do plan on fixing up those mistakes and getting the pedal working even better!

Thanks so much for your comments and help!

I took my pedal back apart to put in those missing capacitors, swap the two switches I put in the wrong spots, and even swapped the drive and boost leds(I meant to have blue for boost and red for drive).

It didn't take too long and it still works!
