    The comments on Donner's site prompted me to try one of Marcus' Cold Gin pedals.
    One of the reviewers - "Rollo" - really seemed to know his stuff, and the fact that it worked well with his Eternity convinced me to buy (plus I'm a sucker for limited editions).
    So I bought the last "Ace" Cold Gin from Tone Factor, and it arrived yesterday.
    I didn't really get it at first, so I went back and read the reviews again - then tried it with the guitar on full volume and the pedal volume and gain at 12.00.
    Wow - it is a really nice pedal.
    It is definitely a "sweet spot" pedal, but that sweet spot is very sweeett.
    I had a peek in the back to see what was used to produce the distortion, but the circuit is wrapped in insulation tape and I wasn't too keen to pull it off.

    Nice one Marcus.

    VERY COOL!!!! I'm so glad that you like the pedal. The insulation tape (electrical tape) is just there to protect the circuit from shorting out. You bought the pedal. You can remove the tape if you wish. I would make sure to put the tape back or replace it with more tape. I have no secrets in there to hide from my customers, but please don't post pics of the insides on the web.

    The op-amp has a socket for easily replacing it in case of failure. So you can try other op-amps in there like the LM107, LM101A, TL071, and TL081. I've not tried these other op-amps. I don't know how they would change the tone or how the circuit would react, but those are direct replacements for it.
