Re: IRF510 sucks for distortion as amplifier
Aron I should have given you a write up. The two mosfet overdrive is very mosfet sensitive. I used power mosfets. It does not have a alot of gain however it will smooth out a Transistor amp IMO. The input cap of the devices is high so the lowpass action can be heard and "tuned" with the source R. Using an fuzz/dist before is a fun thing to do. For you I would use it as a building block. Try some very low RDS resistance Drain to source power devices under 1ohm.
