little bear r.attack - RAT copy

Hi, I would like to know how the pedal can switch between 3 different clipping with only a SPDT.

Apparently there is 3 1N4148 for Vintage (unusual for a standard rat), 2 1N60 for dirty and 2 Red Led for Turbo


Thanks a lot if you have any suggestions.

It's an on-off-on switch
The LEDs are always connected and active when in the center switch position. The center lug of the switch is connected to ground. The other sets of diodes are connected to the respective outside lugs. The lower Vf diodes will take over from the LEDs when they are activated.

Hope that makes sense.
