    A circuit diagram would help for that fuzz, rather than just the component layouts.

    I'd guess that the signal boost could be increased, so that as the input signal level drops, more of it is pushed up to clipping level. So you could try adjusting the booster gain resistor values.

    Thanks Simon. I actually stumbled upon the answer when searching for the schematic. Someone else was having same issue. I must have been using the wrong terminology when searching previously (so much to learn).

    Turns out the schematic had missed a resistor in parallel with the diodes, which is obviously what this layout was copied off.

    I'll give it a burl tonight.
