    My tonebender mk3 fuzz pedal has recently started having a ground issue. I have done the usual tests like taking it out of the loop and changing the order of things but it is definitely this pedal. There is a buzz to the pedal that goes away if my feet or hand is making contact with it.

    The buzz is less noticeable if I don't use my treble booster with it, but that kind of defeats the purpose.

    Can anyone figure a solution based on this photo of the circuit.

    It sounds like theres no ground connection to the enclosure. The back of a pot is a good spot to solder a ground wire.

    Where would the ground wire start from?
