T Jauernig Electronics Luxury Drive/Boost

Here's quick on for your Friday. The Luxury Drive is a simple JFET boost circuit and is the same as the boost section of T Jauernig's Gristle King. J201s should also work just fine.

  1. it is verified, but is just too weak of a booster. pot on max is near unity.

    1. Have built a couple of these in the past, haven't had this issue, and a big leap in volume. Try out another JFET

  2. I built this and it has an awful lot of breakup. I repaired my buddy's Luxury Drive and I don't recall it being so dirty. Mine almost sounds a bit like a voltage starve. Any thoughts?

    1. Sounds like it's not biasing right. Adjust the 10k resistor going to the drain of the JFET.
