18v distortion/boost circuit
Gorilla Glasses is a DIY-friendly interpretation of the GCI Ape Eye high voltage distortion/boost circuit. It uses a charge pump to internally add a -9V rail to the standard incoming +9VDC supply for a total swing of 18 volts. The sound is classy and transparent and features the typical gain, volume and tone controls as well as a unique "clipping" control. Turn this to adust between "boost" and "distortion." Increasing this control lowers volume and increases clipping. Bassists, in particular will love this feature.
