I consulted the comments under the layout and changed the oscillation pot from 100K to 2K and for a bit more "spittiness" suggested in another comment, swapped Q2 from an MPSA18 to a 2N2222, which appears to have made a fairly subtle difference.

Much more usable as a consequence, so I'm going to consider it "done for now" and box it up when I have a minute.

Hurrah!

That's what it does. The oscillation thing is just a ground starve. I didn't care for it.

Good job, it's almost always a cut or a row ;)

Yes, the oscillation isn't essential, but it might come in handy as something I can put at the beginning of my chain and chop up and mess around with - or even as a sound generator for debugging other circuits :)

I still want to return to the first layout I tried at some point, I'm sure I will learn something by getting it working.
