hey, i would like to wire i black ice overdrive onto my guitar. i was looking at the tutorial and its not very clear what i have to do. can someone direct me to a better one or just explain this one to me? i have wired guitars before so it will be no problem i just need good instructions. i have heard that i can just use diodes instead of the part from stewmack, what will i need to buy? also i saw in this thread that you can make a on off switch for it? (scroll down the page) strawberry ice can anyone help me out?

thanks

Not just any old diodes will do, you want to use Schottky diodes. For help on electronics, the best place to start is DIY Stompboxes. They have all the information you need to get started. Read over the FAQ. If you still have questions, come back and I'll help you out. There are several others here who are fairly knowledgable as well (at least they pretend to be :D, you guys know I'm just kidding). Ansil used to have a diagram up on his site about the Black Ice, not sure if its still there?

Yes, that's what the government wants you to think... B)

You can get schottky diodes from Mouser or Digi-Key.
