It's almost embarrassing it was so easy. My wife got me an SD Tweak Fuzz for Christmas. It was quixotic at best - apparently I got one with the volume pot issues that have been well documented here, as has the mod. Pulled R4 and R5, jumpered R5 and put a 1/8W 10K resister in R4. The volume is way louder and the thing is a BEAST!. The original mod called for using the 8K2 resistor from R5, but I was a little leary about reusing a surface mount part. The 10K seems to have darkened it up a bit, too. Maybe too much, but for right now I'm lovin' it.
