I tried replacing the op-amp for an actual TI071, it sounds really good! Also, I went in and fiddled with the components on the board, made sure they weren't touching, etc. Made a HUGE difference! I'm so excited with how it turned out! :D

Bump thread for this timeless gem.
Built the 03' version, NICE fuzzy OD: that's true the similar grain' with the BD2.

Used TL081, I'll try TL071.
A25K in reverse (as the old version?); 220R to lug 2, and lug 1 to ground: nice sweep.
