I'm guessing the big one labeled 224m50 is 224nf 50v, so i should look for .22uf. open to suggestions as to what type. and if anyone has a guess on the other two. i've done recapping before but never on a guitar pedal.

according to the diagram posted above, the little green fuzzy one would be C10, so 0.001uF - sound right? film, ceramic?

224 = 220000pF = 220nF = 0.22uF

DC voltages would be good.

It's possible the electros are stuff.
Are the leads on that smaller green-cap OK ?

Is the volume supposed to be pretty low on these?

The output filter really kills the signal.

Ah, read the Tone Machines write up and this is normal.

This one is a 9v version in very good condition.
