4 from 5 Good pedal, very amusing

Nice and amusing. Quite easy but not boring.
I suggest to use a 2N2222 and not the 2N3904 I received in the kit. I verified 4 different transistors and 2n2222 gives the best amount of gain and volume.
The only doubt is about the switch SPST for the bright cut... I can say that it gives so little volume that, in this position, you cant hear almost anything.
Anyway... recommended.

4 from 5 Sweet grain

Nice vintage sounding overdrive, just the low switch position is not really useful with the value but easily modifiable

I use it often with my p90 guitar, match perfectly with my tube amp 😍
