BearFoot FX Arctic White Fuzz

Fuzz Friday is once again upon us, so here's the BearFoot FX (BJFE) Arctic White Fuzz. It's probably based on Tim Escobedo's JFET variations of the Fuzz Face, but with a lot modification. It's set up for board mounted pots and will easily fit in a 1590B enclosure.


  1. What if I use 2N5457 insted of J113?

    1. I don't know off the top of my head. Google's your friend there. Definitely socket and try though.

  2. still unverified? thanks a lot!

  3. Has anyone built this one? Found it adds hiss when engaged?

  4. Please mark it as verified! It is necessary to use j113 otherwise the pedal doesn't work.
    Sounds nice, kinda modern fuzz face with better stability.
