This is a library of perfboard and single-sided PCB effect layouts for guitar and bass. I'm not an electrical engineer by any stretch of the imagination, just a DIY'er who likes drawing layouts. It is meant for the hobbyist (so commercial use of any of these layout is not allowed without permission) and as a way to give back to the online DIY community.

MicTester's 1969 Fuzz Box

Her's a unique fuzz circuit from MicTester for your #FuzzFriday. Here's what he had to say about it:

Way back in 1969, I heard "Inna Gadda Da Vida" for the first time. I realized quickly after building some simple transistor stages that didn't work properly that "the" sound was coming from abused transistors! Experimentation over some weeks led to [this circuit]! Just two pots give an amazing range of distorted sounds and none of the components are critical. 

Please tweak away until you find the sound you want! Alter capacitors, change the transistors–experiment!



The original FSB thread with the schematic can be found here.
