I got one of these cause they seemed cool. It sounded alright when I played it so I ended up tracing it to see what was going on under the hood. Going off the other pedals by this brand I'm pretty sure its a clone, not sure exactly what it's a clone of but there are some familiar elements. A TS style soft clipper with switchable asymmetry into a two-band Baxandall followed by a JFET buffer. (Yes, I know there's a gate resistor 'missing' from the buffer, it is not a tracing mistake, and the circuit seems to work fine without it).

Also I'm fairly new and still don't know how to add the cool [Schematic] tag to the title, maybe a mod could help, thanks :^).
