Hello everyone!

I just completed a Maestro Wah Clone that unfortunately doesn't work. Bypass is working and I'm pretty sure I only wired it up wrong.
Now I'm not to sure about my "out" because it seems to be connected to "CW". Would that even work?
Could someone go over my wiring please?
Thanks!

Are you attempting to clone a Boomerang?

You do know that a Boomerang's pot is set up opposite of a normal wah pedal right?

If not a Boomerang, could you link to the schematic/project you are working from?

I used this:

But for the wiring I used two different layouts, and that's probably why I get no sound:

So I pretty much wired according to this last picture and that's why I dont have an "out" like the two other pictures.

Thanks

Let me ask this way:
Is the switch-wiring right and the did I install the filter cap right?
