||Re: How to unfuzz your DF-2|
This is not really CLEAN boost.
It distort too, but with more volume and less compression.This Red Led mod sounds similar as without diodes
but with a bit of tube-like shaping.
Sound with diodes is my favorite.
|And now, a word from our sponsors:

Exactly:sound with red leds is my favorite.

I maked a new mod today!
Instead of one of red leds I added one
1N4148 for assymetrical clipping.
Sounds better and better.
Now I have three total different sounds-
original, no diodes-boost, and
this assymetrical clipping-my favourite.
I maked another good(for me)mod.
I dont like filtering on original
DF 2- on middle position it have some
mids cutoff and it give some"metal
feeling" to my ears.
I added 100n(c13) cap instad of 22n to the
tone control. It give flat tone in middle
pot postion, and just cutoff bass on one side
ind highs on the other side,
which sounds more "Bluesy "and naturally to my ears.
In mode NO CLIPPING-NO DIODES I have a
problem-when Drive pot is minimized
and diodes disconnect, it gives nice
clean bright boost.
But when I play with this setting
some real POWER chords(I used
passive pickups), the peaks
of signal IS a little clipped.
I want in this mode just CLEAN signal(and, of
I have idea - jumping the 1k resistor
in series with drive pot in feedback loop.
IS THIS WAY??
Or changing resistor R7 or R10 by preamp
Have you any ideas?

||Re: DF-2 switching conundrum: the flip-flop flaps|
Thank you for your idea.
I will disconnect the diodes from the ground.
I have one idea-adding switch for diodes.
Two modes-boost and fuzz-it would be great thing!
