Ibanez STL Super Tube

Doron! I think you meant this one and not the MSL :P

To add a few words, the clipping diodes are placed neatly where you can easily take them on the switch and have your way with them. I would probably go with three position two pole switch and have the middle as diode lift, other end as four 1N4148s (two in series and two of those in parallel for more volume) and other with 2 or 4 1N4001s or LEDs.

  3. Thanks Mirosol, but I am quite sure it was a green Metal Charger. I don't have it anymore but this TSL version probably sounds better.

  4. I want to sub the 1uf films with tantalums, instead of subbing them with ceramics. I was wondering wheret the positive side of the electro needs to be facing?Or if it even would matter?

    1. It matters. However. Since there is voltage on both sides of each 1µ cap, i wouldn't recommend using tantalums. Tantalums are best used in those places where the negative lead sees no voltage. There is approx. reference voltage on all those leads... If the differential between positive and negative side is not high enough, those caps won't function properly. Ceramic or polyester is the way to go with this one.

    3. I fired it up it! Sounds great! You can sub a BF244a fet for the 2sk30. But not a 2n5457 even if you flip the source and gate.
