I'd love to see that too! Mind, I'd love the schem for his Fuzz Universe pedal too mind, I can't easily get one in this country without paying a lot extra on the retail price!

I third that. I use my Build Your Own Clone - Fet Preamp (Boss FA-1 clone) to clean up my distortion sometimes, but I can't help but wonder if the Detox EQ would do a better (cleaner) job. :hmmm:

I'm also very interested in this pedal. I thing that the new Mad Professor Evolution Orange Underdrive it is based on the Detox EQ.

I like the idea of this pedal, adding a clean channel to a dirty amp. But there are more roads that lead to Rome and I recently came across the video below. In 2012, Paul himself used a compressor to clean up a dirty Marshall instead of his signature HBE pedal. He still may do that, who knows.
So while we wait for a Detox EQ to come along for tracing, perhaps you can have some fun with a compressor. :)

The bit about the compressor starts at 6:52 minutes.

Actually, I use a volume pedal with a treble bleed inside. Works well with my Orange amp but it's somewhat limited with the EQ, especially, switching between guitars and pickups.

The idea of the compressor is good but I can't do it with my Diamond Compressor clone :slap:

If anyone can provide high-res pictures of the top and bottom possibly with the component values (especially the caps and pots) then I would try to trace it...

If you'd rather go with perf or make your own PCB, the good people over at effectslayouts blog got you covered.
