I've been on a pedal building tear, and recently built a Crimson Drive. It has a great sound with the exception of some high pitch (~3kHZ) background noise. It sounds like a static-like buzz that gets quieter, not completely though, when I touch the strings. Sometimes it pops it's head in between notes, and that's the most annoying part, I could deal with it otherwise. I know the original version had noise issues, but how can at the very least "tame" this noise. Should I add an electrolytic between 9V and ground? Is there any solution, or is this a germanium tranny issue that can't be fixed?
