Re: Sweetest pedal.. thickness/dynamics
The Tube Sound Fuzz can be fixed - I have done it. Larger caps on the feedback loops and a lowpass filter on the end fix things up nicely.  
In addition, use the booster at the beginning like Frank Clarke's version or Mark Hammer's version.  
The problem I am having is that it has just a tad little bass. I am still working with this circuit and will have something fairly soon (I hope).  
This is one of the easiest pedals I have built - just needs a little bit better than usual soldering skills. Otherwise this pedal is sure easy to build.  
I am beginning to think this chip is a "distortion-in-a-box".
