SOmeone quoted the parts of the Alpha Drive on Freestompboxes.com

okgb- the alpha drive is pretty new and is supposed to detrone the Zendrive as the best dumble pedal ato date. It's a very bassy pedal. I loved the sound clips but I really only like it with the bridge pickup of a tele with my rig so far.
I have the board cleaned and will take some good pics so no one else has to bother. The IC is a TL082CN, there are 3 transistors (one BS170 and two 2N7000), four diodes (two 1n4001 and I'm not sure about the other ones. One is a fairly large clear glass with a red stripe and the other is the small glass orange and black one). The pots are: OD- B1M, Vol- B500K, Tone-A10K. 17 resistors and 13 caps (11 film and 2 electrolytic- 100uf/25v and a 10uF/25v). The resistors are really small and it's hard to see the bands. I'm hoping the camera will help. I'll take pics by the window to get some natural light so maybe that will help with colors. I can see almost all of the caps but it's really hard to read the component labels (EX: C1, C2, ect). They are super small and are right under where the component solders in. I 'm not too good with tracing circuits but I should be able to get some good pics and identify everything on the board.

And someone posted the mods for the Joyo Ultimate Drive Pedal to the Freekish Blues Alpha Drive.

Just so it's clear, if you are modifying the Joyo pedal, the changes are as follows: 330K resistor in parallel (solder across outside lugs) with "OD", 1K5 resistor in parallel with "T", 470K resistor in parallel with "V". Change capacitor "C9" to 100n (104). Done.

based purely on vidclips i've listened to (since i lack actual on-hand experience), i still like the Zendrive better.  :-)
