Re: D*A*M Grease Box [traced]

New GB-88 version was introduced with added output capacitor blend (between 4700pF and 220nF).
Also input cap increased to 22nF in place of 15nF. Rest of compontents looks standard for 220K/47K bias string.

New M-27 version which replaces Meathead Deluxe M-26. Input blend between 4700pF and 1uF, 18K on Q1C and Q2B lowered to 12K and 15nF output cap instead 100nF. Fuzz cap 10uF like in old mid tuned meats. Rest of has standard values. Transistors are BC337-16 as Q1 and BC109 as Q2 (sometimes in military...

Re: SolaSound - Tone Bender MK1.5 [schematic]

Yup, these transistors seems to be pretty rare. I now that at least one more MK1.5 and one MKII are existing, pics are somewhere on DAM forum.
Here is pic from pigdog transistor porn session:

Re: fuzz face low volume

You can try to connect output from second transistor directly to Q2 collector, not through bias resistor (usually 8k2), it should boost volume, too.

EDIT: like this in general FF schematic, I'm not sure what tone stack You've used.
