To make it more realistic i would add an accelerometer chip to cut out the output on negative Gs ;) Box it in a nice elliptic enclosure and put next to a yellow 109 Germanium overdrive ;) Nice sounds!

For some time around here, there has been a school of thought that is demonstrated by the switchable EQ concept.  It is, that the circuit used to produce the clipping isn't as important at the EQ.  Here we have one of the more popular clipping generators i.e. the dual mu-amp, with 2 separate EQ stages that are switchable that are specifically tweaked for 2 different types of sounds.  Very Cool.  ;)
