Well, after the uncovering of the CJOD as nothing more than a Landgraff Dynamic Overdrive/Tubescreamer 808 I wanted to try the circuit out, so out popped the breadboard. I built it up, OK sound - too many parts though. So I rustled up this for you guys, it's a cross between a Clay Jones Overdrive and Jack Orman's "Son of a Screamer" circuit.
As you can see the input and output buffers have been removed, this has very little impact on the sound and, if anything, actually makes the unit sound better - nomore dirty transistors ;-) The rest of the circuit is identical to the CJOD.
So, if your looking for a quick fix for that original Clay Jones Overdrive tone - here you go, a unit that has less parts and sounds just as good if not better :-)
Here is the schematic:
Here's a couple of videos of this circuit in action (The pedal was built by DEAJ, great little builds!):
