The boost pre or post depends by your intentions od sound. The boost in the original project is before the main circuit and it gives a sort uf fuzziness. I read that the original boost is not so good after the distortion.
I have to try my MXR Micro Amp clone pre and post the main circuit of the Triple Wreck.

I tried the MXR Micro Amp before and after the Triple Wreck. It works really great!
It encreases the gain without changing the tone or adding hum if it is before the TW, and it can add a lot of volume if it is after the TW.
If somebody wants to replace the original booster of the Triple Wreck with a real gain booster the Micro Amp works perfectly.
Maybe changing the gain pot of the Micro Amp with a 250k, 100k or 50k reverse log to get a better taper.

Hello to all.

I have a question about TW. What is the accetptable noise level with gain potentiometer set to maximum? I have completed TW clone and there is almost no noise from zero gain position (7 o'clock) to 12 o'clock. Then it gets noisier, with noticeable noise from 15 o'clock.

I found the TW not so noisy... we have to remember it's a distortion pedal.
Anyway, you can add the noise gate of the Tight Metal, you can use a simple switch or a pot to set the right value for you.
I still didn't try it, but someone else yes.

I have my triple wreck 1590BB enclosure ready to shove all the guts in.
It's going to be a tight squeeze.
More to come.
