Stinky Cheese Fuzz

Far from cheesy, this box is bursting with full-on fuzzy madness. Super high gain tones to pound your sensibilities.

Incredibly versatile thanks to the famous four-way tone section rotary switch, giving:

  • Tone Bypass
  • Mid Scoop
  • Mid Boost
  • Gated (very, very silly but mucho fun)

Includes a modified output stage for extra volume, as the original was a little lacking. Many thanks to Plesur for the details of that mod in the Feta Complis build doc.

And all this in a vertical 1590B you say? Damn straight. AND it's great on bass.

Pots and rotary switch are pcb-mounted (though you're welcome to wire your pots if that's your thing), making this the quickest, easiest, neatest version of this circuit you'll find. Direct-connect daughterboard compatible too, so you can get the whole thing built and boxed up with only a 4-way ribbon cable and 6 connecting wires for jacks and DC. POW!

Note: if you select vertical-mount pots these have a round shaft, so take that into consideration when buying knobs - you'll need some that fit with a set-screw. They'll also need to be 15mm or under in diameter. The rotary switch requires a knob with set screw, and will need to be cut to length. Build requires a teeny, tiny hack - not enough of a problem to justify redoing the PCBs before this batch runs out.

Kit includes: PCB, all components, hook-up wire, 3PDT footswitch for true bypass, jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, LED. Enclosure (pre-drilled) is optional and will not take a battery. Does not include knobs.

PCB size: 50 x 60mm
