    Hey,
    I am new to this sector of electronics (been doing guitar wiring for ages) and i am having trouble understanding this schematic. (the top one)
    As far as I can tell the input jack is stereo, wich is weird.
    I know pretty much where everything else goes but im not 100%.
    Thanks for your help!

    The input jack is stereo because it uses the extra terminal to short against the shank of the plug and connect the battery.

    I agree, and you could use a mono jack just fine as long as you connect battery ground to shank ground.
