I'm a bit late on this so please can you let me know what the craic is...
Is it an original circuit or are you making it from a kit/schematic available online?
Yeh it's a wee circuit I built a while back from some stuff I'd seen lying around the net. I tweaked a few values to suit my (broken) ears and added a pull down resistor.
I'm sure a similar thing has been done before by someone as it's just a simple transistor based fuzz and there's only so much you can do with the circuit TBH. All fuzzes (in my opinion) are more or less built in this way.....clones of others with component values tweaked to suit the builder.
I think Kev provides the kit for £25 currently, with pre-drilled enclosure.
Timm, I don't think he's published a schematic or layout. He hinted in another thread that he'd prefer people to buy the kit and give him, rightfully, a little bit of profit for coming up with a design.
Slightly ironic considering the OCD and Box of Rock clones he has sold surely ?
But the schems for those were readily available online... Kev was just selling a bundle of parts for them and a printed schematic from a public access area. This time round, he's actually designed a circuit himself, so will not be making the schems available.
Is there much gain on tap in the circuit? The reason I ask is that I'd actually like a fuzz with very little gain for using with a Harp mic and going from the pedal into a PA - All fuzzes I've tried make a feckin awful noise when I try this.
Or can you suggest a tweak to the basic fuzz circuit which might accomplish what I want? BTW the other question that I wanted to ask is .....do you have a 9V socket in the kit or is it battery only?
