I have a Tyco on my breadboard. I've tried 3 variations of the circuit; Mr Huge's Tycobrahe schematic, the hand drawn one and the Dunlop Octavio. No matter how I combine the dozen different types of transistors I have I don't get such a nasty and thick sound. :cry:

I've had the GGG Tyco and the wedge Dunlop octavio. I've watched a bunch of YT videos of different clones and I'm starting to believe the guys who claim that there is nothing like an original Tycobrahe.
