Tube Overdrive

Tube overdrive based on the Valvecaster circuit, using a Mullard ECC82 Tube.  I tweaked the original circuit a bit (slightly different component values, no tone control), and added a silicon booster circuit before the Tube Booster.  You have control over the volume of the Si booster, then control over the drive and volume of the Tube booster.  Turn the Si booster right up with the Tube booster low and the pedal starts to get very fuzzy indeed!  Back off the Si booster and turn up the Tube booster for more of the warm Tube sound and less distortion. Runs off a regulated 9v power supply only.  Soundclip soon ; )
