I just finished a 3 string. I added the “psycho Knob” from CB Gitty. when I try to get amplification, the PK must be on the pass through mode or in other words, no distortion or effects.  It should have been pretty simple.  Input to the PK comes from the mag Pup and after the tone and vol pots.  I have a Sterio Endpin.  I am very new to electronics and had never soldered anything before this glorious CBG obsession.

If anyone can tell me how to troubleshoot it or were I can get the information to figure it out, I would greatly appreciation.  Thank you

Correct, but any other setting is silent.   It’s not that the different effects dont work well, they sillence the mag pup

Either the PK is wired up wrong(silencing the pickup) or the PK is defective.

Can you post a detailed pick of the PK's board/wiring where it's wired to the pickup harness? A pick of the PK wiring instructions might help too.

I spoke to Nick a CB Gitty and tried a couple solutions.  It didn’t help, so they are sending me another one.

Let me say, I would not get technical help, customer service or likely a satisfactory conclusion with a Chinese supplier.  There is a reason to purchase from C.B. Gitty and if they sell something to me that costs a couple pennies more, it’s the cheapest insurance I could buy.   Peace of mind - priceless.  Ok I’m done

thanks Paul

Good deal, the folks at CBGitty are great.
