By the way, I DID put the transistors backwards! *Face palm x2* Now it is working perfectly, a bit low volume but that can be fixed with a little biasing I guess.

Hello,The FoXX Tone Machine PCB sold by GGG is fine. It's the basis of my DIY one, with a "more" selector added to increase gain and some light mods : - switchable emitter decoupling 10uF cap on the 1st stage ("more" switch).- 1st stage Q is a 2N5088 (Hfe ib10ľA = 400) instead of a 2N3904 (Hfe ib10ľA = 135).- FUZZ and VOLUME pots are LOG instead of LIN.An "awful sounding" pedal... built for the fun... And there's fun in it, indeed !!!A+!
