Nov 8, 9. Diamond Transistor Tickler Posts: I just finished building this and it rocks! It took more than twenty years, but in a reissue Overdriver was created that incorporated a volume pot on the output.

A group picture in the works? Follow the link below. Also, you may want to try a lower value for the gain pot.

My Vick Audio Overdriver adds a great sparkle even in the house. Those are called gentlemen transistors.

Guitar FX Layouts: 18v Colorsound Power Boost

Oops, disregard my last entry about the places that need to be jumpered. This time I’m going to space them out so there’s not a sudden flood.
