Here’s a DIY circuit from mictester over at FSB. It’s a basic overdrive with a good amount of added sag/compression as you turn up the gain. Quite cool.

I built it, and while the first version/schematic suffered some distortion at full gain, adding a small resistance in series with the gain pot solved this, and this is reflected in the layout. Verified.

  1. sorry, please remove nmy comment. I didn’t look properly at the design. the Ge’s are diodes. so nevermind my questions. thanks

  2. what ge trannies would be good on this? I’am assuming this is a neg ground design. what Hfe range are you talking about as low gain? and do they need to be bias’d for this to work properly?
