Kaiser Mk1 | Dark-Grain Overdrive
Simple single-transistor warm overdrive, borrowing from designs by Joe Davisson (Diode Compression) and Christian Hemmo (Bazz Fuss). There are no controls, just an input and output jack and a 9V battery inside.
The low output makes a pre- or post-gain boost necessary.
