    Hi, I built the little Mini booster on the AMZ site and it sounds great but a little harsh, any of you guys have any experience with these things and know a good mod to smooth it out a little?- Thanks- John

    I've built a couple of them but have not done any mods. One mod I've seen is to use a 2N5457 JFET in place of the J201. Good luck.

    I do have the 2N5457 JFET in there now also have the 500k pot for the input volume like the Boutique version. Works really well!
