is the blue electrolytic cap a non-polar (bipolar) type? why? what part of the circuit? is it vintage or just too big to SMD?

It's a 10uF polarized electrolytic - the coupling cap on the input of the fuzz circuit. Since it's in the signal path, I stuck with 'lytic but chose a high-voltage cap for the big, axial vibe.

And thanks for all the kind words, guys. Worked on designing and building this since February, I think.

Here's the PedalPCB version of the EQD/Sun O))) Life Pedal.

I didn't like the knob and footswitch layout too much. So, everything got moved, except the clipping switch and the boost foot switch, which explains the spaghetti wiring in there.

Sounds pretty good.

Inspired by the fact that TGP have been slavering over this for some time, and the schematic is now out there
I have built a clone of the DRV on vero. Not built anything on vero for a long time, this went together ok - make a slight bodge which the keen eyed will see.

I must admit it sounds really good - doesnt have that sag that most normal Rats do. I appreciate some people like that, but I find it a bit bothersome.
Can't beleive the price these tend to go for - but seems the hype is somewhat justified, and they dont sell out in seconds now, so the scalping has died down a bit. Still, $250 for a Rat? Eash...

Because I wasnt bothered to save space this has gone in a 1790xx case ;D buffered bypass - apparently its a klon buffer but the parts values dont ring true to me from very distant memory... I could be wrong (!) 1983 because the original is 1981 and I was born in 1983 8)
