VFE Pedals Dragon Hound

"The DRAGON HOUND is a dual overdrive + distortion pedal that combines the core circuits from the Alpha Dog and Pale Horse into one unique dirt box. Each circuit has a dedicated drive control, and the blend control can dial in saturated distortion tones that retain the clarity of an overdrive."
You can find their original pedal (now discontinued) on their website here and the original schematic here.

    1. The A-P pot is a "Blend" between the Alpha Dog and the Pale Horse. What do you mean a Blend for dual offboard wiring?

    2. imagine you have 2 effects, in one box with 2 switches, you can have use one at the time, or both effects on, (1 Ts and 2 fuzz face) I want a blend pot for mix both pedals, the pot in middle position is both eefects mixed to the right ts only and to the left the sound of fuzz face, thats the idea

    3. I THINK with pedals that have equal and low output impedance (they have to be pretty much equal) you will be able to get away with just a simple passive blend (essentially a pot of the right size).
      For everything else you will need a buffered (active) blend like e.g. the splitter-blend of rog is using http://runoffgroove.com/splitter-blend.html

  3. Is it possible to substitute two B5k pots inplace of the B10k A.P pot? I'm thinking this would give more blending options of the two circuits.I'm building this circuit now and plan to try this out if anyone is interested in the results?

  6. OK I have built this almost exact to this vero layout.Only thing i changed is the Comp trim is now a B100k pot.Row two is leg 3 on comp pot and row three is leg 2 on the comp pot.So this is verified now,Thank you very very much Alex.I have built the Plimsoul befor this but i think this circuit is soooo much better sounding.I'm going to try replacing the A-P pot with two B5k pots and see if this mod will work.Thanks again Alex and everyone involved
