Re: Tube Distortion effect with real tubes??
Levi,  
 
I know some people have built (and liked) the Tube Driver from the schematic on AMZ. I don't know where the link is anymore though. Someone was raving about how great it is on this BB last year. Some suggestions for that schematic from Jack Orman where:  
 
- leave out the zener diode since it doesn't do anything  
- try a LM833 in place of the 4558  
- use 12 volts instead of 9 volts for power.  
 
I started putting together a PCB layout for that one, I'll try to finish it and post it soon.  
 
JD
