Stompboxes circuits published in magazines, books or on DIY electronics websites.

From a small DIY guitar electronics book which I bought
in the mid-1980s.

I remember building this for a friend at that time.

I think it sounded halfway between an overdrive and distortion.

The circuit obviously has to be modified to be of use in practice.

I think R6 can be replaced with a 500k variable resistor as
a Distortion control.

Another variable resistor will have to be added as a Level control,
I guess at the output after C5, or after Pin 7 of IC1.

A tone control circuit could be also be added in.

The bypass switch of S2 could be replaced with those Boss
flip-flop type FET switching circuit.

S1 could be replaced with an input jack with a ganged switch.
