2. Dead Kings bass effects pedal – clean boost

Continuing the Dead Kings preamp series

The tests in real hardware have shown very close characteristics to what LTSpice have simulated, this means the models of the transistors I’ve been using are pretty accurate, that’s good news!

i’ll be testing some slight modifications – reducing maximum gain and maximizing undistorted output – smaller R9 and R10 and higher R8.

The first stage (Q1 and Q2) didn’t need any modifications whatsoever. Even the modifications I’ll be doing are pretty minor and may not be necessary, time to try this and see if it worked out better at all!
