The Real Tubescreamer was a design that showed up online at the start of june 2007. The concept by R. Nijboer contained a starved plate tube (12AX7) preamp followed by the tone control of a tubescreamer. Good thing compared to may "tubedriver" like concepts is that this design does start off with an opamp stage containing enough gain for a decent distortion, other than an overdrive alone.
While looking into this design, more or less pushed by the youtube video, I decided to give the thing it's own board layout. Another layout had been made already but I preferred to keep the wiring, usually the most time consuming part in building a pedal, to a minimum. In the case of this pedal, feel free to contact me to make you one.
