Tube driver help

Tube driver help
I just finished the tube driver off the page. It works ok with a high level input, but with a guitar it is crap. If I manage to get any sound out of it at all, it is very much gated. With a high level output as found on my roland synth, it gets pretty nice distortion, but is still gated a good deal. I'm pretty much a novice at this DIY effects thing, but if I had to guess, I would say it has to do with input impedence. Is it that or could it also be a bad 4558. Any help for this slack-jaw (me) would be greatly appreciated
