hey guys
i just built one, i tried a lot of transistors and finally got some nice sound out of it. bias voltages are ok, no ugly noises on the decay
its gated in a nice way, with a hint of octave up when i back the guitar vol pot a little....
what bothers me is on a certain combination on the guitar volume pot and the "fuzz''/ bias pot in produces a kind of octave down sound which is actually very pleasant
my question is whether this is normal. i havent heard of a zonk pedal doing this

i would appreciate your answers...cheers!
