Yup that's supposed to be the internal of trim pot but mounted at the bottom. Easy adjust 💪

Thanks, I will build an external Dlator. I'll use a 12vac and then use a transformer to convert it to a high current (300v) internally. I was considering the ceriatone one but it's not tube buffered so it's not as punchy as the original one. One tube is enough.

Made a footswitch using an old footswitch enclosure. Gutted the inside and added the circuit and removed the graphics. Controls are OD/Clean, Jazz/Rock (not a standard feature for the ODS), Boost. It works perfectly.
