Building a Simple Op Amp Booster – SPICE

I went through schematics for MXR Micro Amp and my Thunder, so now I’ll go through some SPICE analysis for them. I said the circuits are similar and should have pretty similar sound. Let’s see how they look when simulated and if we can learn anything. Schematics Here are the schematics in SPICE: The schematics […]
