Filth Fack! - extreme five-knobbed germanium fuzz kit Summary

Take a look at what's involved - download the instruction PDF here.

As with all my kits, this includes EVERTHING you need to do the insides, including the transistors, jack sockets, potentiometers, hook-up wire. Just add solder and patience.

Oooh what a noisy chap! You know you want one.

*** This is the original kit. New version with board-mounted pots is now available. ***

Classic, noisy five-knobbed fuzz box with stability, compression, gate, drive and volume controls. The fuzz comes from a pair of specially selected germanium cans which can produce tame, soothing fuzz tones or veer off into wild oscillations and gated madness with the turn of a knob. This version of the kit is great if you want to mount a fuzz in your guitar.

Please note - the transistor sockets shown on the image in the instructions are not included. They are for the WEAK!

Most DIY layouts, and even the only other manufactured PCB I've seen available to purchase, have fiddly off-board pot wiring. My board has connection points for all lugs of all pots. The fiddly work is all done in the copper traces. Sanity maintained!

Number of knobs required: 5

Pre-drilled enclosure available, knobs not included. Enclosure will accommodate a battery due to the offset footswtich position.

TO AVOID CONFUSION, PLEASE NOTE: The kit does not come with an enclosure unless you order the pre-drilled option. Thank you.

Taco Fry Fuzz - Keith Roberts - 10/08/2012
Excellent value and very professional. The finished pedal offers many hours of not-so-innocent pleasure when built. I recommend buying the case. It's tight in there but it all fits and I couldn't make a box that good. The board worked first time when trialled without the switch. However, I spent some time with the meter trying to get it to work in the box with the wired switch etc until I realised that I had transposed the input and output leads from the board when I wired the switch!

Sweet! - Azoora - 07/21/2012
Ace kit. Poodle takes the pain out of DIY!!No spending hours trying to figure out what components to order (and invariably getting at least one wrong). No oval shaped drill holes. Just a great pedal and sweet sweet fuzz!

Excellent service and quick delivery, kit worked perfectly first time, a great chance to own an expensive pedal for cheap! Wish i'd discovered this website earlier to be honest.Cheers

Second kit i've had from Poodle (see also fuzz face review)... I completed this very recently in a matter of hours. I've never used a Zvex nor had I heard the possible sounds so I didn't know what to expect, but true to the claims, this little kit recreates all the sounds that are available from the real deal. Excellent fuzz parameters coupled with all those controllable synthesised squeals and howls.Very highly recommended kit and for the price (especially considering that the position of the pre-drilled holes are crucial for fitting all components neatly inside), the box is an absolute godsend... Buy. Build. Buzz.

A fantastic little kit which arrived the next day very neatly packaged. Great fun to build and even more fun to use! Had a few teething problems which were all down to me but Mr Poodle kindly provided some excellent and clear email support - basically I didn't link all the grounds - Doh! All in all great value for money and fuzz to die for - Buy one!

Amazing - Richard - 03/04/2012
Such a great kit, for about 1/5th of the cost of a zvex. Works exactly the same, I have just wired this up and installed it into a guitar and it works and sounds perfect. Will be back for more!

Another great kit. Superb quality PCB, good parts and instructions. Follow Mr. Poodles advice, and do not socket the transistors - I socketed mine, and could not get the lid on the enclosure as they sat too high off the board. Fortunately the board is top quality, so the extra heating involved in removing the sockets and soldering the transistors back in place caused no problems. I opted for a pre-drilled enclosure, and again the drilling was accurate and very well done. I can't recommend these kits highly enough.
