Wondered if you guys would have any ideas for things I should check to get my pedal build working.

I just put together a Musikding 3verb kit. The bypass is fine and when the pedal is switched on the led lights up and there is signal coming through, but the sound is much quieter and muffled and there is no reverb coming through. Any ideas of things I should look for when I start troubleshooting?

This is the kit:

I'll pick up a decent multimeter sometime next week and have a go at working out what's wrong. But just from looking at the pedal there's nothing obviously wrong to me.

I can post pictures if that helps?

Some of the components are pretty close together on the musikding kits, that one doesn't look as bad as the Big Muff board I'm using, but make sure you haven't bridged any of the connections.

I've built quite a few musikding kits. the pcb's are always really well made and i don't think I've ever had a problem with them. id start by trouble shooting the wiring as thats where I've often gone wrong.

edit: assume couve also checked that you have components in the right way round where necessary (polarity??? I'm not an expert) also i didn't know they did a reverb pedal, video sounds great on the site. definitely gonna pick one of those up!
