I have heard of an effect called a DoWhizzer. What is this?
What order do effects go in?
"My Phaser/Blaster/Clinker pedal is acting funny/dead. Can this be fixed/how can I fix this?
"I have (or have a friend who has) some electronics abilities and I'd like to build my own guitar effects. Where can I find schematics for this?"
I have done this for a long time, so I thought I'd write down some facts and some of my opinions. I have tried to weed out a lot of possible-but- difficult things in writing this. Where I simply state that something ought to be done some way, this is usually an opinion based on having tinkered. My opinion is subject to being wrong at times, so if you know a better way, or if I have left out something that is much simpler and easier, let me - and the rest of us - know. I certainly won't be offended at having a mistake pointed out.
If you have something to contribute along these lines, by all means, send it to me or post it.
