Re: Bee Baa
It was me that built a BEE BAA on perfboard a while ago. I took it apart, as I was just experimenting, but this is what I remember about it:  
-I omitted the booster circuit  
-I omitted the bright switch  
-I cloned the gain stages  
-I threw in a lowpass filter for a tone control, instead of what was already in there  
-transistors were MPS A18s  
Suddenly, the circuit became bone-headed simple.  
How did it sound? It kicked butt. It was kind of Fuzz Face-ish, but maybe a bit angrier, a bit more liquidy (a welcome thing), and the EQing maybe a bit more hi-fi. I loved it.  
BTW, thanks, Gus. I got the idea from you long ago.

People look at the schematic posted at R.G.'s of the EH axis the Bee Baa dist stages look alot like the EH with the Mix(fuzz) control set to one side. A Bee Baa with a Mix control?
