I just finished designing another schematic for a pedal. Its called the Vintage Boost. I dont know if I want a overdrive stage, but I am going to add an optional one, just in case. So heres what I am asking... Where should the placement of the overdrive stage be? Heres you options (please also answer in the poll):
1. Pre treble and bass boosts, and tone control.
2. Post treble and bass boosts, before tone control.
3. Post treble and bass boosts, and tone control.

Thanks. I want to make this pedal to specs of what the people want .

Overdrive stage?
You can't really just add an "overdrive stage."
You mean a gain stage? To overdrive something you need two stages. And what are you going to be "driving?"
I'm not very active here on UG currently.
I'm a retired Supermod off to the greener pastures of the real world.

his asking what does the difference in having the gain/boost put matter. i think

ohh ok, well putting it before the boosts makes the overdrive become treble boosted, bass booster, or both. putting it after the boosts makes the guitar signal turn more treble, bass, or both and then overdrives it.
