Thanks. Actually this was one of the wrong boards for the amp I wanted to build. Same board, but resistors result in higher gain. For the boards that I already finished with the lower gain, I need to test those. That leads to my next question, which I'll post elsewhere.

BTW, I don't understand something-why is it that the connection I made on the POT got rid of the hum. I mean, I didn't actually connect anything to ground, did I?

Often hum is the result of a connection to earth/ground causing a loop with other wires/equipment also connected to ground. It isn't the ground itself that causes the hum, rather it is this loop that makes a very good aerial that picks up electromagnetic interference. This may help you understand and is very useful info for making your amplifier hum free. http://hifisonix.com/wordpress/wp-co...tober-2017.pdf
