Distortion+?

I built the NPN Boost (my first perf pedal) and am ready to learn a bit more. There was talk about another project tutorial in the future and I was hoping to suggest the Distortion+?

Some advantages: It has a relatively low parts count, we could learn a bit about ICs and I've read that there are quite a few mods out there that might be fun to play with. Sound good? Any other ideas?

I might make something like a Dist+ but probably not the exact circuit.

Thanks for the suggestion!

So maybe Fuzz Face project will be exact ?

It was my first effect  ... (and the only one :)

I used schematic from this site:

And I must say that with Ge transistors it sounds really nice... :)

There are any number of circuits I suppose I could do next. I was thinking of an IC-based project, but I am not adverse to something like the Hornet or Rocket as a 2nd project.

I'll be very grateful if we could do together any kind of compressor e.g. Dyna Comp :)
