I'm guessing it's the same architecture as a lot of the other Xotic pedals:
Input buffer (BJT)->soft clipping(opamp)-> tonestack (in this case, not a Baxandall like the AC/RC/BB)-> output buffer (BJT)
I only see one pair of clipping diodes, so I think the dip switches are probably switching caps in and out. I'm guessing this isn't exactly YATS, but it's got TS-style building blocks.

I heard one of these the other day and it is a great little pedal! Priced kind of steep but since it is inside a little 1590a and built well I guess it is worth the price of admission 8)
I may look for a used one to add to my collection :applause:

Hi, for a few days this pedal really attracts me.

Is there a verified layout or schem. for this?

Thank you.

I'm so disappointed to see nkone who has the ability to trace this pedal has taken any interest.
