I've been wanting to do a Rangemaster/Fuzzface 2-in-1 combo for a long time! The only thing I've been having trouble deciding is just how much control to give. I could have each effect individually selectable or have the Rangemaster act only as a boost to the Fuzzface. And whether to allow input trimming (for clean-boost tones) on each side, as well as adjustable input capacitors for both, etc. Or maybe just have one input section with the input trim and adjustable input capacitor which feeds both circuits. Or have two different input cap settings and let the 'fatter' setting act as a boost mode. Allow the user to select which circuit comes first? How? Via a Captain-Coconut routing scheme or simply use a toggle switch to reverse their order? Allow each to be on or off individually, or have an A/B/Y setup? Then, of course, you also need a bypass; so that's 3 stomp switches, one toggle switch, and, like 7 f-ing knobs... :) Hahaha Ok ok, I know... prioritize, simplify, dumb down.
