    Hi guys i need some help.
    I put together the colortone from a Musikding kit. And while its sounding good when not distorting, its doing strange things once I turn the gain high enough to distort.
    Its kinda farting, and when I ring out a node there is a point where it suddently stops to distort. Right before that point its sounding quite strange.. almost bitcrushery.

    I put a switch in for the C3 with a 220p and a 560pf. So thats why there are cables.
    In my recording I used the 220p but its sameish with the 560p one.
    Also I’m using a c10k pot for the gain.

    This is how it should sound like:

    My recording was with humbuckers though but i think something is wrong.
