Compressor Pedal

I built a compressor pedal for my guitars from a parts kit from General Guitar Gadgets. They have a huge variety of pedal kits, though I did have to scrounge for a couple resistors that were missing and take my best guess at a parts list and schematic that sometimes contradicted themselves. I’ve soldiered wire splices together, but this was my first time soldiering things onto a circuit board, and on top of that it was an extra challenge because all the resistors are standing up and not laying nice and flat on the board.To my shock and relief it worked straight away, I didn’t want to paint the enclosure because I was anticipating dismantling it 6 times trying to troubleshoot, but it worked!
