Ape Eye distortion/overdrive with GAR 2520 op amp and clipping mod
2520 op amp compatible overdrive distortion
The God City Instruments Ape Eye is a highly refined dirt box centered around the API 2520 discrete op amp format commonly used in high-end studio electronics. Internally, the op amp runs at 30 volts, but thanks to an overbuilt power supply, is powered externally by a standard 9v adapter.
This run is powered by the GAR 2520 discrete op amp and also has an internal trim pot (the square one in the top row, not the rectangular one) to adjust balance between clipping and boost. Bass players will love this mod!
