    Well this is no fun with the Indonesian Spam dude gone...

    Anyways so I'm thinking it should just be 2 SHO's with the pots that turn it off when turned counterclockwise and a normal true bypass switch to avoid a bunch of ****************. Is that possible? Like the Fuzz pots in a lot of analogman stuff that disconnect it with when you turn the fuzz pot all the way down

      I would just use toggle switches for the SHO's if thats the way you're going. I still think a footswitch per SHO is the way to go, but then both amps would always be on. You could always put the pots for the SHO's on the side and have four footswitches on a 1590BB, one for each of the SHO's, and then an A or B and A and B switches.

        So for the sake of being bored and hungover at work, I think this would be cool. I don't really need to be able to switch the SHO's on and off with my foot, just a set and forget type deal. Can a toggle completely bypass like a normal TB switch? I've never built anything before, so I might try to do this as a first. SHO circuits aren't too bad are they?

          What you've drawn there would be very easy to build, yes. Two "ON/OFF/ON" DPDT toggles (not hard to find) would be fine.
          Good times rolled with:

          WAWBanks, RadioSilence, theboywho, ponch, fruvai, joeyowen, jah_vengeance, sparkfriction, HeartfeltDawn, robw, tvrf21...

          I gave stuff to Melx for free and nothing bad happened

            SHO's are really easy to build. Just be careful because it is easy to fry the BS170.

                No problem, do report back. If you need parts, hit up Mammoth as they have the reverse-log pot, stripboard, and everything else. Our own IvIark has a good stripboard layout. http://tagboardeffects.blogspot.com/2010/07/zvex-super-hard-on-updated-version.html

                  Yeah, man. That should be super easy to build, unless I'm forgetting something. You could use something like this for the toggle. If you just split the signal passively from the input though (just taking two wires from the input jack and running each one to a SHO) you could get some phase cancellation issues though. It could make sense to use some sort of buffer/splitter to split the input, and then everything else would be fairly easy from there. Good luck with your project!

                      There are a lot of good YouTube soldering tutorials.
