    Nice work! Sounds like fun - fuzzy dumbling!

    Did you design the circuit or was it a kit? Bet it sounds awesome.

    Neither, I used the stripboard layouts found here for the fuzz and here for the zendrive. I'm not sharp enough to design my own!

    The right side is fuzz and volume on top, tone on the bottom. The left side is gain and volume on top, voice and tone on the bottom...all copied from the original circuits.

    Next step is to have my daughter label everything...her hand is much more artistic than mine!

    Love it. You know, the Dover Drive is something very similar in concept, but not with the amount of control you have there. Pretty cool!!

    Can we see the guts?

    Zendrive is a great overdrive. Actually a fairly simple circuit for those willing to give it a go.

    "a fairly simple circuit" like many things served in a great breakfast place so simple and yet some places make breakfasts well beyond the "simple ingredients" and out of the kitchen comes incredible food.
    How many overdrives are compared to to Dumble amps

    Mark the the Moose, I mostly use the Digitech gsp 1100 (plugged into my audio interface)
    which I got turned on to by Dweezil Zappa who had to in his touring rig and said that they did "old tube amps well. So I bought It. later on bought a back up
    I have a question , the 1100 responds to volume changes from the guitar , that means the preamp is alive ? I'm not certain about the effect of dirt, O.D pedals Distortion pedals , boost pedals affecting the preamp the same way these pedals hit the front of a tube guitar amp.
    Wadda' you think, please? mr mask small.png

    I don’t know that particular model, but most amp modelers at least try to respond to boost and drive inputs similarly to the amps they are emulating. You could pick up a cheap overdrive or boost and give it a shot.

    Did you get your girl on this? I'm curious to see the final product.
