I'm finding my "ideal" distortion pedal.
I recently built Wampler Pinnacle (a great power in the box, although a bit noisy) and JHS Andy Timmons (not an amp in the box, but the dense overdrive).
But more recently came across a pedal Emma Reezafratzitz, which intrigued me, I spent two days trying to build it and all the while faced with one of two problems
1) or very little distortion
2) or a high level of distortion, but there oscillation
My question is - does it make sense to continue to try to build this pedal? Can it(Cmos) sound better than Wampler(Fet) or JHS(Op Amp)?
