Rockett Animal

Another fun overdrive from Rockett, this time going for a Plexi sound. Think of it as the first half of a buffer-less Tube Screamer with an AMZ Stupidly Wonderful Tone Control 2. Here's the schematic for reference. Should be an easy fit in a 1590B.

    1. In this circuit half of the op amp is not used. In original units, the unused pins are left unterminated, which can cause unwanted noise. There are a couple different ways to terminate the unused opamp pins. The vero version just uses a different method.

  4. Just finished building this one. My build works, and sounds fantastic. All of the controls work properly, except the volume control. It has no effect at all - its always full volume. The output is isolated to lug2 of the pot. Lug 2 of the pot isn't connected to any of the other lugs on the pot. The pot is grounded out to lug1, and lug3 is taking the input. Im thinking bad it may be a bad pot, but does anyone else have any ideas before I change it out? Aside from that, I'd say this one is verified.

    1. My guess would be you have a bad pot. Thanks for verifying!
