Today's #fuzzfriday offering is the Punch-In-The-Face, designed by Tim Escobedo. It's based on the Fuzz Face, but with a JFET in Q2. Here's what Tim had to say about it:
The latest Fuzz Face inspired offering. The big difference is the "Trauma" control, when used with the Gain control, will yield tones from hard fuzz to octave up to sputtery pulse to "soft attack" fuzz. Good clean up with the guitar volume knob. It may be good to choose Q2 from a lot of J201s to give the best "soft attack" fuzz and octave up effects.
The pots can be board mounted using common short leg PCB pots, with the board vertically mounted in the pedal. Trauma and Volume pots mount from the component side, and Gain from the solder side.
