Cap't Munch - Crunch Box Style Screamer Variant


Part of the Tube Screamer Family, but with Dual Op-Amps driving each other, while a pair of Clipping Diodes to Ground add extra Muscle.

This Circuit uses Red 5mm LEDs for a High Gain with Tube style tone.

Whiles some may compare this to a Crunch Box™ this circuit is unique and uses (2) IC chips instead of (1) for extra gain as well as a unique tone control section eliminating the need for a circuit board Presence Trimmer.

This circuit can be used to replicate excellent Orange style tones.
