    I've just completed this device and it does what it's supposed
    to(distort a guitars output signal) but has no gain... Can anyone help
    me try and get more gain out of this pig? Perhaps change some of the
    devices values...add pots? Who knows I don't... see this hyperlink to
    view the schematic ( http://www.diystompboxes.com/pedals/orange.jpg )

    Thanks

  2. What kind of a load does it drive? If it is high-impedance load, you can
    get a lot more gain by moving the 0.1 output coupling capacitor to the
    collector of the second transistor.
     
  3. This is for a guitar...an effects box that creates distortion...

  4. I'm not 100% certain but I think if you made the 4.7k larger, or the 1k
    smaller you would get more gain, also a potentiometer across the output
    would allow you to control the level with the amount of distortion staying
    the same (assuming you would be playing clean and bypassing the fuzz some of
    the time. Though no bypass switch is shown)
