Route 66

Whoa this pedal is totally cool! What a great idea to combine a TS-808-like distortion with compression in one pedal. The housing is all totally old school pressed metal. The inside circuit is most beatious. Nice circuit layout, wide and roamy with plenty of elbow room.

This unit had a fried resistor due to some abusive power supplies. The resistor was fried beyond all recognition (FUBAR). No way to tell what value it was. Some circuit tracing in the power supply section was required to determine an appropriate replacement value. The pedal is now on it's second life!!
