This is part of our FuzzPup range of circuits designed for 1590A builds. Please read the general build doc available here and ensure you're happy with what's involved. They're not especially difficult, but working in a confined space can be fiddly. Take heed.
Of course there's nothing stopping you using these PCBs for 'standard' builds. They're Direct Connect compatible.
If you like your fuzz raw, splattery and face-meltingly intense this one's for you.
Two different flavours can be built - standard (if that word even applies to this fuzz), and vintage, which has a pronounced octave-up. The only difference between the two builds is reversing a transistor.
In either guise your amp will feel like its been on the wrong end of a red hot poker.
We've included pads so you can easily add a switch for 'chaos' mode in either build, which makes a real mess of things in a good way. No enclosure option available for that though - you'll have to buy a suitable SPST switch and fit it in where you can. Shouldn't be hard, but positioning is down to your personal taste.
Caution: This is not a clean, quiet effect. It's a beast, and as such has noisy fangs..
Kit includes: PCB, all components, hook-up wire, 3PDT footswitch for true bypass, jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, LED, footswitch daughterboard and header pins. Enclosure (pre-drilled) is optional and will not take a battery. Does not include knob(s).
Supplied with 9mm pots (round shaft)
PCB size: 25 x 33mm
Knobs required: 2
Direct-Connect compatible (6-way)
If you want the kit pre-built you must add the enclosure option below and select your knobs in the Components section. Check Enclosures section for powder-coated enclosure availability.
