Hi. I just finished a modified Woodrow/Trotsky Drive mongrel. Sounds great. But trying out different clipping diodes and amplifying units was kind of a déjà vu - made me remember the times when I was trying out diodes and different ICs for a tube screamer clone. So I was wondering, what is the difference between ICs and Transistors in sound, sonic properties and technical aspects? I known there are pedals where the clipping is produced by the amplifying transistor - is there a comparable IC circuit, where clipping is produced only by the amplifying IC instead of diodes or transistors? I'm thinking mainly of drive pedals. I don't know if it's the same with Fuzzes. I don't really know a Fuzz pedal with an IC chip. This is a hobby builder asking. Please forgive me if I didn't see the obvious yet.
