So I built a BYOC distortion + a year or so ago. I always though it was a bit too fizzy. When looking for grit I would always reach for my ts-808 clone instead.
Anyway, a few weeks ago on the BYOC board I saw some mods that were supposed to smooth it out a bit.
Notably using asymmetrical clipping with n4001 diodes instead of 914's
Well, I tried it, and it di smooth it out, but maybe a bit too much. As now it seems to have lost too much of its fuzzy grit and unique Dis+ properties. It is acting too much like a semi-clean boost/over drive now.
you be the judge: this money honey below is using the dist + on the solo section. Where is the fuzz now ?!
(Please excuse the MANY clams )

I like the smoothness of the pedal now, it isnt as angular, but I want some fuzziness back without giving back some of the smoothness improvements...a different pot value maybe for the drive?
