I know this is a pretty old thread but I just wanted to say that I breadboarded the schematic on page one, took a few tries to get it to fire up and when it did, holy did it ever, honestly, with that schematic, no issues at all, no funky noises, the only thing I really did was take the ground off the pregain lug and now it doesn't shut off when rolled all the way back, resistor still works if its really needed to have that lug going to ground.
This circuit is loud!!! Thank you for sharing that schematic! Im messing around with tone stacks and the rat one sounds pretty good!

Its amazing! Oh! might have been the way I breadboarded it but I did have to have the leds the same way, also the 1UF cap and the 220K resistor in that group, I removed it and now its got a lot more output, not that it needs it haha!
Switched up Q1 to a bc108 and the bias resistor to an 18k, still got that splatty sound but a little less. Im really enjoying this, its the first time I've ever done a circuit with more than one transistor so its been an awesome learning experience!
Still gonna investigate to see what the led deal is haha!
