Just a quick question on the gyrators in case someone is so kind to help...

It is clear to me now how to deactivate a gyrator by removing one of the caps ...but what if I want to keep the gyrator and be able to set a different amount than either full on or full off ? can I add a trimmer somewhere ?..For example in the pre section as below

Would something like a 10k trimmer between C034 and C032 work ?

Ok, no kidding.
I'm looking for some information about a kind of Fuzz mod of the MT-2. I just seen a Brian Wampler's video about some modded MT-2, really cool. I'm very curious about the Fuzz version, a great huge fuzz tone.
I found just a source, and the mod consist just to jumper the two clipping diodes (beside the usual correction of the eq). I found really few demos on youtube, the only convincing fuzz sound is in the Wampler's video.

I want to know more about it, Did somebody make some fuzz mods on the Metal Zone?

Thanks! :)
