Sounds great - is the fuzz circuit itself the same as a Fuzzrite?

Love how you resisted the urge to play "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vidda" for a whole 35 seconds. :tu:
Wah sounds way better than I was expecting. Does it have an inductor?

there are some similarities but it doesn't take the signal from either transistor and send them to either side of the tone pot... the tone pot is driven by only the last transistor then split high to low more like a MKIV... here's the schemo floating on the web....
