Guv'norThis is the classic Guv’nor, a high-gain distortion pedal. It has a vintage valve amp sounding, with a wide range of distortion and three knobs to control the tone. It is a perfect pedal for blues, rock or metal.
Enclosure and wiring Step 4 of 4
Place the assembled PCB and the rest of the components (DC and 3.5 jack connectors, 9V battery clip, 3PDT foot switch, led...) in a metal enclosure. Connect the ground of the circuit to the enclosure in order to attenuate the noise (the GND of the input and output jacks are in contact with the enclosure). The following figure shows the components mounted in a 1590B enclosure.
You may need to remove the little metal tag from the potentiometers in order to place them in the enclosure.
For the wiring, use a 24 AWG stranded wire and connect all the elements as indicated in the following figure. No matter the order you follow to connect the ground (GND) as far as all the elements are connected. The led can be placed directly on the PCB. The following figure shows the wiring with a negative tip DC connector (standardized Boss style 2.1 mm with a negative tip orientation).
The PCB for 3PDT footswitch will help you to wire all the components, keep a neat circuit and reduce the noise. This PCB also includes pads for the led and its current limiter resistor.
