ThisHeavyEarth Bad Trip v1.3 Distortion Pedal

This design started as a Rat style distortion but with the goal of more gain, loads more output, thick to tight low end, and of course it needed a clean blend for those of us who prefer that for gain stacking and the bassist out there. Drop the gain to zero, turn up the tight control, and use it as a boost or do just the opposite for massive doom.
