This is the classic ratty sounding distortion form the '80 and '90s, with some Dazatronyx tweaks.

A distortion unit with two voicing modes. 'SI' silicon mode is the classic sound. This is achieved by a two-stage distortion of first overdriving the operational amplifier chip into a metallic fuzz, and then compressing the signal using hard-clipping silicon diodes.

In the 'GE' germanium mode, the op amp fuzz has been removed. Germanium transistors and four germanium diodes are used to achieve a more rounded and organic overdrive-distortion. This works well with humbuckers where the gain is driven a little more.

There is an internal trimpot to dial the mid/high saturation to suit your pickup and style - only if you feel the need to fiddle. Turning this completely right achieves the 'stock' metallic ratty distortion. Turning this left achieves a more flattened and bassier response, which can be well suited for the germanium mode.

All of the active signal processing is handled by parts wrapped in either metal or glass - all mojo. These components are in limited availability, and likely will be subject to change in the future as this project continues.
