I recently finished putting my Cmoy amp together, only it doesn't work! The sound is very distorted even at normal listening levels. What's odd is that if I put my finger against C1 and bridge that to ground, it sounds great. I measured the gap across my finger with a multimeter and estimate it at 300K ohms, which would be equivalent to an R2 value of 75K ohms. Out of a mix of frustration and curiosity, I tried replacing R2 with a 68K ohm resistor that I pulled out of an old intercom. This produced even worse sound (not entirely unexpected). Any ideas what's wrong?
