I've been working on this for quite some time. I've always wanted to design my own distortion pedal and finally I have.
I used 2 main parts for this - one is a TL081 general purpose J-FET op-amp and the other is a more special LT1037 op-amp - I chose this for the high-end clarity and low end solidness... haha not really (I don't believe that crap) no, I chose this because it is a very fast and low noise op-amp. it also has input current limiting diodes which affect the type of distortion this pedal gives you. it is also quite low power (in the order of about 2.5 mA)
I did a quick video demonstrating how it sounds which I will attach below.
the name comes from my favourite cartoon growing up - "the flight of dragons" hopefully I will make 3 more of my own stompboxes for the other 3 wizards in that film.
NB - I put germanium diodes in this and it improved it drastically
