Marc at Skreddy said one of the design goals of the screwdriver was to be able to get page tones with a strat. Here's my strat's bridge pickup into the cosmo->secret preamp->deluxe reverb

This circuit is always a good time!

If you have any, I'd suggest trying different Ge transistors in the circuit. I got very good results with a Russian MP38A transistor.

Thanks for the tip. I've got a few AC127s shipping from China to the States, and I bought a handful of GT404Bs from Russia (http://diy-tubes.com/index.php?route=common/home) when SBE went offline last year. Looks like there are a lot of options for that NPN Ge in this circuit
