Sounds good. Just seems like another overdrive pedal though. Great job on the build though. Looks great!

nah it sounded fine. and in fact people like you inspire me. it's much more satisfying building things for yourself. not to mention you can learn the skills required to make money doing these kinds of things. keep it up!

btw where did you get the box? or did you make it?

The range of tones sound great! Where did you pick up the schematic?

I picked up the Marshall Guv'nor and the MI Crunch Box Schematic, picked the stuff I wanted in my box, and integrated the schematics and made my own.

I got the boxes from Tayda, cannot make these boxes myself, have to have a fabrication units.

:lol: Glad I asked! I remembered TC Electronics made a Rottweiler Distortion pedal a while ago, which I thought was the coralation but when I listened to those demos it wasn't near the tones yours had. Nice work!
