Well shit, guess the Fisherman's Fuzz couldn't survive the rehearsal space floor or maybe was doomed from the start... I got home from there (where it had worked but below unity volume) and hooked it up, noticed a volume loss situation that seemed to get worse/quieter the longer the circuit was on.

Not stoked on going over the Millennium bypass or rewiring the switch again, I replaced the circuit with an identical but smaller one I had built in parallel, and a neater, separate pot/3PDT toggle switch solution. NOW it fucking works and can be handed over to my bud. I still don't know what exactly went wrong with the mk1, may or may not try the MBP switching method again. Is is really worth it just to have a pot/switch combo with LED indication.

another mod i did this morning.
the OS2 was the first pedal i ever bought when i was in high school
they are super cheap now so i figured why not bask in nostalgia a bit
well stock, it sounds like someone threw a blanket over the amp :(
so i decided to mod it a lil bit & now it really cooks :hello:

What sizes did you use for the input cap toggle? I think I put a 4.7n that measured 5n in mine and then a 47n on one side and a 15n on the other. I l ikr the 50+n stacked with my unidrive clone.. pretty huge

I used 4.7n for stock, 22n for mid and 100n for full. I had been using 47n for mid but I could barely hear a difference between that and 100n so 22n got me the halfway point I was looking for. I like the circuit a lot for it's simplicity but also the breadth of tones available just with input cap, output volume and pickup selection. I was running it into a single ended el84 amp that overdrives easily so with full range boost it gets really dirty and squishy.

Nothing quite like a Germanium boost IMO. I like the Jack Orman Mosfet booster for just straight up volume, though it does get a little crispy at higher levels. It'll definitely goose tubes into breakup. I have 3 tons of PNP germaniums so I try every boost I see with them..

feel like i've been posting a lot in here, hope i'm not burning y'all out
but speaking of boosts...finished these up this morning and noodled w/ it while baking some homemade pizza.
dirty boost/low-gain overdrive into a colorsound bass fuzz-ish, which to my knowledge is pretty much just a tonebender w/ bigger input caps..?
:yay:
