I have a question about the purpose of the 3.3M resistor (R5) in the boost section of the LaVache pedal from Madbeans. Its a variant of the Lovepedal Les Lius Overdrive which I believe is built upon the Electradistortion.
Here is the schematic
When the switch is open its just a huge resistor in parallel with R4 and when the switch is closed its bypassed completely.
What am I missing!?
