hum hum hum
why am i getting nothing but hum, in the pedals i build?  
so far i've built the (or *tried to*) 'bazzfuss' at and the 'TMK' at Tim Escobedo's site.  
and when i turn them on i get nothing but hum.  
but regardless of the schems i've used. what can cause this hum?  
and there's only a difference in sound when i touch the hot-tip on the output jack. not on the input jack.  
it's just a hum. like a fuzzy hum. and in the schematics where the VOLUME control is last, i can (at least) turn it up/down.  
what am i doing wrong? :(
