VFE Distortion 3

Product Description

Three classic tones in one box

The Distortion3 combines three nearly identical circuits with very different tonal palettes. With an added filter control to tame the high end fizziness of high-gain settings, and dual 3-way clipping switches, this pedal goes from a smooth & mild overdrive to full-on distortion box with ease.

DRIVE

Controls the amount of gain in the circuit. Counterclockwise = less distortion, clockwise = more distortion.

LEVEL

Controls the overall output of the Distortion3.

FILTER

The original circuits did not have any type of tone control. However, at the higher gain settings, the distortion can get somewhat harsh. I added a FILTER control to tame the fizziness of high-gain settings. Setting this control fully clockwise sets the circuit to the stock frequency response of the original circuits.

MODE

This 3-way clipping switch toggles the different clipping setups of the original circuits. G = Germanium (Dist+), L = Diode Lift (MicroAmp), and S = Silicon (DOD 250). There is an internal DIP switch to convert the L mode to 5mm LEDs, for a more natural overdrive crunch.

OD

This 3-way clipping switch is in the overdrive position of the circuit, for smooth overdrive tones. A = Asymmetrical, M = Mosfet, center = clean. Both clipping switches are independent & located in separate parts of the signal path, so they can be used separately or independently.

LO - HI

This unique control switches between a lo-fidelity 741 op amp and an audiophile-grade OPA134PA op amp. The difference between the two op amps is somewhat subtle, but the OPA134PA is clearer and smoother sounding at higher frequencies.

INTERNAL CONTROLS

There is one internal DIP switch in the Distortion3. This 2-position DIP switch can select between diode lift & 5mm red LEDs for the “L” mode. A diode lift provides more headroom & clean boost, but 5mm red LEDs have a more natural, crunch-style distortion when you crank the DRIVE control.

The second position of the DIP switch increases the bass response of high-DRIVE settings.
