Dr. Boogey Layout

This is electrictab’s pedal emulation of the Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Solo Head. See his schematic at http://geocities.com/electrictabs/dr.boogey.png. It is a very popular build on Aron’s forum. This layout is a substantial revision of previous ones. It is the product of contributions by many members of the forum.

    Does anyone have a kit that I can buy that has been tested and works? If you also have a video of the pedal I would like to buy one.

    I just etched and built it. Sounds OK but I think I need to tweak the bias on the 201’s. It’s pretty a generic distortion pedal running through a Carvin V3.

    Also tweak the amp setting as well.

    When I originally commented I clicked the
    “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is
    added I get three e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Cheers!
