    1. Ditto on the TremShifter. I bought the PCB from DeadAstronaut. Amazing sounds with that design.

    2. That pic looks wrong according to the deadastronaut wiring. Follow the link to the thread and use deadastronauts layout for wiring the switch my good man.

  5. Hi gents, im having troubles with position 4 or the most clockwise position on the 3p4t. It completely shorts the circuit out, even the batt light on my test box goes out... anyone else having issue?

  6. Right. Well i think i have found my issue. There are 2 different versions of how to wire this. Someone posted a picture of the 3p4t and had shifted all the lugs round by one. I was watching the video thinking hang on a mo, this dosent sound right. My pos 1 sound like pos 2 in the vid and so forth. For anyone wanting correct wiring follow the link to the thread and deadastronaut has posted a layout pic and there you will find the wiring layout. Phew.

  7. Hello,
    If we realize the wiring of the 3pt4 following the picture and not sum deadstronaut
    The positions must work the same it is just what will be reversed no?
