Hmmm, I've decided to go with PNP trannies and use a battery snap. When I start selling these things, I'll add DC jacks for £2 extra, but it's gonna have to be used with a separate adapter. PNP sounds better tonewise than NPN, IMO, and I guess you gotta make sacrifices for tone, even though it's not really much of a sacrifice.

I'll probably go with a BB enclosure then.

By the way, are the AC127s matched?

No, I just bought a bunch and measured them at home. I have this really old huge analog multimeter (and a nice Fluke as well by the way) that can measure transistor gain directly. Here is a description of a simple rig with which you can measure transistor gain with a regular multimeter. It's quite an interesting read on fuzz faces in general as well.

Coo'. I think I'll be going with the high gain PNP germies on banzai, mainly because I wanna build a fuzz with octave and overtones. The bias knob is handy with that too, cos then I can dial it lower for less octave and gain.

I was trying out a Silicon fuzz face the other day (on a breadboard) but i didn't have high gain transistors.

I tried out some BC547C's in it but the output was REALLLLLYY low.
I turned up my amp volume and i could hear these really weird octave/ring-moddish sounds happening.

Was quite cool.

Anyone know any fuzz circuits with BC147/547 or 2N2222 or 2N3904/5/6 ?

Anyone know of any sites where I can get a Russian Muff shipped to Ireland?


I'm having no luck finding a Russian Muff round these parts, which just isn't fair

You can't find a Russian Muff anywhere in Dublin?

Look for Dave_Mc - he's our resident Irish genius. He'll be able to help you.

I believe the Triangle Muff has 2N3904s, but I doubt that's what you're looking for. Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz uses 2Nsomethingsomething.

A simple fuzz circuit preferably.

I'll have a look at the triangle muff.
Unless you could send me a schem?

Ah, yes! Cheers dude... if I see him I'll send him a pm. Have a feeling the only place I'll get one is on ebay though!

If you want one, I've got one. I THINK it's for PNP, so you'll have to reverse the polarity if you want NPN.

Oh f**king yes, I love this thread.

Fuzz Factory owner here, and I love it.

I seriously, might never buy another Fuzz again, because of this one pedal ( With the exception of a few Devi-Ever, and Death by Audio pedals)

I'd review it, but I don't now where to start.

the original fuzz face can use 2N2222, or 2N3904 OR 2N4401 (IIRC 4401s are the same as 2222S)

I'm getting my first fuzz on Monday! It actually got here yesterday but I'm waiting to open it on my birthday.

It is the Old Skool Fuzz by (fellow UG user) Bostonrocks. I most likely post clips as well, since I found out how to work Audacity.

Has anyone heard the new Fulltone Fuzz?! DAMN! It sounds AMAZING! It's not really a wall of sound type but for every thing else it sounds great and seems to have a versatile range.
Will probs be buying soon

If you could build a Shin-Ei FY-2 clone for less than $110 plus NZ shipping (the price Brett offered me) I would buy from you.

I don't really think I'll do much else apart from the Germanium fuzz right now, and I wouldn't be able to build anytime soon. I might be making some Germanium boosts in the future though.

Bump.

Anyone have any cool graphic ideas for a custom fuzz?

It's has like two sides to it...so i was thinking of a two-face/desert-oasis/other contrasting concepts.
Ideas?
#106
Ooh - I missed this thread earlier. I have 1.5 fuzzes. I've got a ZVex Woolly Mammoth and a Way Huge Red Llama. Both are clones that I built myself though. The Red Llama is sort of a crossbreed between an OD and a fuzz (hence the 1.5) and I love it tons. The Woolly Mammoth is absolutely sick however - oodles of gain on that thing.
Unet - I really like the desert/oasis idea.

(you're like the millionth person i've shown this to

I'm getting that sometime next year when i get my first job.
I'm having some customization to the circuit done, also getting some custom graphics.
that's what i need it for.

Also, clips of the Mammoth?

Is your WHRL original?
#108
Haha, I saw you all hyper about that pedal in the TPR thread during my ban.
I have a demo of my Woolly Mammoth clone in my profile titled "Fuzzy Elephant demo".
Like I said, both the WM and RL are clones that I built myself. I wish it was an original though.

I have a EHX Big Muff and a fuzz I build myself, pics and clips are in my profile if you want to check it out. I'm kind of gassing for a Fuzz Factory right now, but I might as well build it myself. I'm still looking for a vero-board layout though because I can't make PCB's, so if someone knows where I can find it!

But yeah, fuzz is the ultimate effect!

Umm also, could you send me some schems for both?

The Mammoth sounds....well, Mammoth.

WtrPlayer - I orginally wanted to build a FF, but couldn't find any germ trannies locally so I decided to build a WM instead. Greatest decision ever - WM sounds so much fatter and less brittle.

So I want to get a nice, fuzz box 'since a bit of a Muse fan, however I'm not willing to spend $180 on a Fuzz Factory. Are there any other, much cheaper fuzz boxes out there for those Bellamy-esque sounds?

i absolutely love mine. i tried capturing a demo of it once, but a video camera can only do so much.
