Do you want to share the schematic?

Oh great!
- The plug sockets and the stable footswitch are handwired
- The electronic components are of the highest quality and selected for best sound quality.

Eh Dirk youre getting old.

You forgot the most amazing keyword:

- The gizmo preserves the most full tone integrity.

(or some other variation on the theme .. like most authentic tone integity.)

So... It’s a Tube Screamer with Monte Allums mods?

I have a hunch that he signed up on FSB to schil his pedal not to help out the DIY community, :lol:

Not to worry, if it is successful it will be traced sooner or later otherwise it will soon be forgotten!

I have no idea what Monte has done but this pedal is unlikely to be a mod of TS.
A clue to the signal path is on the JCA webpage.
Active bass > diode clip > passive treble > or something along those lines.
Of course you still need an Amp that is setup to OD in the right way or it will just sound like another dirt pedal.
This clip does at least explain the importance of having the right Amp;

There's likely many ways to get that sound. You just need to understand that it's not the Pedal mojo it's the combination that makes it happen.

Active bass > diode clip > passive treble


That pretty much sums up a Timmy Pedal.

Well yes a timmy could work but there is still the missing tone tilt!! I'm yet to hear an all in one pedal as good as the clip I linked to above.
I just wish he would plug that into a SS amp as then you would realize that it only works because of the way certain valve amps OD.
A lot of dirt pedals have way too much diode fizz to get this particular sound and a BIG part of that is due to too much bottom end passing through.
The trick is to get enough high pass tilt but still keep the bottom end tight,,so there must be some high pass involved. I'm sure if you messed around with OD circuits for long enough you could pull off something similar.

FWIW,
I've mentioned this on several forums but I don't get much response,, most likely because most think that it could not possibly be so simple.
If you are the lucky owner of an amp from that era then all you need is a cap and a couple of resistors in front of the amp and you will instantly recognize the tonal signature of SRV,, now just add a TS or similar. [smilie=a_yumdumdoodledum.gif]
Remember that Stevie ran those amps at full volume and I've never been able to turn the volume full without the sound turning into mud BUT YOU CAN if you tilt the tone BEFORE the Amp. :secret: It does not matter if you turn the bass to full it does not turn to mud even at full volume. :mrgreen:
Without that tilt it's mud.
HTH,, Phil.
