Menatone Red Snapper

Gotten a few requests for this one. It's a based on the Tube Screamer, but without the input and output buffers and a modified tone section. I've laid it out for board mounted pots and the electrolytic caps are folded on their sides.

  1. Finished my "fishfactory" today - combined the Blue Collar with the Red Snapper. Works fine. Just one question: the gain knob needs to be turned up to nearly 50% before any gain gets in (I mean distorted / overdriven sound). I don´t know, if the original works like this. At Ivlarks site, it´s mentioned to leave lug 3 of the gain-pot not connected to anything....any hints? thx

  2. You might want to try swapping out the gain pot for a linear taper 1M.

    1. thx....you made my day :-) works fantastic. I roughly combined the 2 pcbs, got 8 pots in a 1590bb, 2 dpdt switches....no battery (I usually use a powersupply). awesome!

  4. Hi, Could you make two PCBs for me? I would pay for your pcb work and shipping to Canada.
