Creepy Fingers FuzzBud

Here's a great sounding one-knob fuzz from Creepy Fingers Effects for your FuzzFriday. It's based on the fuzz section of the Colorsound Fuzz-Wah and follows the basic structure of the Fuzz Face, just with a fixed resistor in place of the fuzz control. Shouldn't be hard at all to fit in a 1590a enclosure.

  3. No prob! One question though. Do these transistors have to be matched?

    1. It's a fuzz face derivative, so I'd start with a higher hfe on Q2 then experiment a bit.

  6. Built this but with 50k pot even at very little it is very very loud. So i cant get much range. if i turn it all the way it has no output but touch the pot even a little and it roars is there a way to control this to get some range that i can use.

    1. Did you try any different pots? Increasing the value should give it better range. Try 100k or 500k

  8. So use a B50K pot? I think the poster above had a bad one.

    1. Use a 50k and if you don't like it try 100k or higher. YMMV

    2. Thanks. I bought a 100k also. I have some 250k pots from my telecaster project. I'll try them out.
