...but who cares, it works, and it sounds unique!

http://noouch.de/audio/noouch_bazzfuss2.mp3 - Holy crap! Diodes removed and 0.1uF electrolyte cap between 9V + and -

Utilizing both the diodes and the cap just gives me a basic low pass, good for mellowing the fuzz out a bit. I was pleasantly surprised, this seems to be the first effect I have that sounds completely different depending on how I set the tone knob on my guitar.
I've just got it breadboarded out right now, but I'll probably give the components a proper home once I have some more free time on my hands.
I was thinking of a selector for which diodes you want to have in series (maybe just a connection matrix), and whether or not to use the low pass/go nuts cap.

What the HELL is this contraption you got going on?! O_o

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

It's (the innards of a future) distortion pedal. Just listen to the sound samples to get a basic idea of what it sounds like...
It's really not much. Just three capacitors, some diodes, a couple of resistors for voltage control and component protection and a whole lot of jump wire.

That's a breaboard, or prototype board. It's awesome for quick prototypes and experimentation. No soldering, you just insert the components and wires in the small holes, which are connected together in series of 5 holes if I recall correctly.

sounds way muddy

Well considering this is "baby's first fuzz", I'm quite happy with it. I wouldn't use it for rhythm, just for the occasional solo...

I worked off the v3 schematic, although I pretty much just used components I already had, meaning the values for the components vary slightly.
