Toying between the Pork Loin and the Fat Sandwich as my next build.
They're both (about) as complex.

Don't really NEED another high-gainer, but I've heard the FS is pretty amazing/versatile.
However, I don't have that many low/medium gainers - working on a Barber Gain Changer, and have a Maxon OD-808 in the works somewhere. I've heard great things about the Pork Loin, and I like knobs. 8)

So, talk me into the PL!!

Right there with ya man. Been on the fence between the two, as I like those hex inverter distortions for my peavey classic. Just saw perf and PCB released a layout for the fat drive but pedalpcb came out for a very nice looking board for the pork loin and have gone that route. I got 20 of the transistors for $18 shipped via ebay. I read on MB that someone said the 2n2222 transistors were pretty close, but the originals were better at lower gain, which I think you would be using it for. Good luck either way!

Yep - I was going Perf & PCB's layouts for both, but might go vero for the PL. I printed out the FS board from Perf & PCB today.
Time to hunt down transistors now.......
