Well, kind of. Initially it did lots of weird things, but I guess that's what happens if you forget to attach the pot earths to the earth bus... In my defence the last amp I built had them earthed to the casings, all the casings joined together and then that link taken to chassis.

Now though the thing sounds awesome without the overdrive. Channel volumes up around 3 o'clock and there's a really great crunch.

Overdrive does nothing at all, but I've worked out there is a wire missing which isn't shown on the layout for the relay board driven off the heater wires, namely the one from Pin 1 of the overdrive pot. It makes complete sense that it is needed, but perhaps an update to the documentation to show it?

Off to make some more noise now...
