I see, so for it to be a short, the diode section (where ground is) and the negative of the cap would have to be connected to the same thing.
Yes, that's what my concern was since if it was a short, none of the signal from the guitar would be clipped.
Thank you for the help, guys.
Hey, I've been working on putting this schematic together (Not my design, got it off of instructibles.)
It's a distortion pedal for a guitar, at this point I have an amplified clean sound coming through, so I know the audio amp is working. My question is, since there's a short circuit...
