This explains the creamy dreamer version... but there's a switch that you can do which is a "creamy dreamer." I want to know what exactly to do to make this work. I know it has something to do with emitter resistors... just not sure exactly how to execute this mod.

If I understand clearly (english is not my native language), you have some BIg Muff - like version, and you want to do modification to get Creamy Dreamer sound. So, to change circuit with some switch to this creamy version I attached upper? What is your version? Typicall Big Muff?

I have a wren and cuff super russian that has a "dreamer" switch. It's been a while since I've looked at it but I think it's just a dpdt switch with two wires going to the end of two resistors. I'm guessing that flipping it just "ungrounds" them? Maybe I just need to take my super russian apart again to see how they did it:

From youtube video "Creamy" switch seems to promote that mid range notch, as it is usual for pot "body" or "contour" in tone controllers. So, only high and bass are up. Something like Univox fuzz I attached. Flat-scoop switch only sets in tone controll, like at Big Muff opamp version Tone bypass switch. See as attached picture too.

BTW that link I gave you has 4 parts as you surely noticed. Many Tone modifications are seen here to fiddle around.
