I think it's worth it. The 4558 just sounds better, so do a host of other op-amps.  
While we're talking about tube screamers, I have a question about the clipping diodes. I changed one side to a single germanium. I'm not convinced I like the sound, should I have used two one side? Also, as the note fades out, I percieve "waves" in the signal, is that because the two sides are too mismatched? Thanks for the help. Joe
