Ugly Face Volume Mod

I like the Tim Escobedo’s Ugly Face I’ve built about 7 now. This is a really fun pedal. Total Sonic Mayhem. Not for Jazz, though I’m hoping someone will take that as a challenge…

Something that is not really a problem, but has always bothered me is the volume. The Ugly Face is extremely loud. The output swings about 0 to 9V. Which leaves a small usable range on the volume knob.

Lately I have been adding a 68K resistor in series between the volume pot and the output from the circuit. My measurements seemed to suggest an 80K would be better but I had 68K on hand. The the thing is still way loud. But now at least volume pot seems to have a more usable range.
