Build your own clone of a pretty spectacularly uncompromising fuzz monster.
A five-knobber with Level, Fuzz, Filter, Bias and Density controls, as well as a toggle switch to kick in oscillation mode. More fun than a bucket of badgers.
The circuit is a bit picky about the input signal, so this works best without a buffer in front of it.
Available in a few flavours:
- 1590B, single footswitch, mini toggle for oscillation.
- 1590BB, as above.
- 1590BB with a second footswitch for oscillation.
You'll have to sort out your own enclosure if you go for:
There's no option for twin footswtiches in a 1590B - it simply won't fit.
Optional extra transistors available so you can experiment with making it a bit less gated - these are now MPSA06 and BC517 (which requires a leg twist, but its worth it) - the results are a lot more pleasing than the standard cans.
Pots are spaced 21mm apart - take that into consideration when choosing your knobs.
Pots and mini-toggle (if selected) are board-mounted for minimal wiring and easy enclosure mounting.
Partial kit: PCB, all board-mounted components, pots.
Full kit: As above, plus footswitch and appropriate daughterboard/components for your selected bypass type (see Downloads section for details of those), jack sockets, DC socket, battery snap, hook-up wire, LED.
Enclosure (pre-drilled) is only available with full kits, and will not take a battery. Knobs are not included.
Builds are only available with full kits including enclosures. Please choose appropriate knobs.
PCB size: 100 x 22mm
Knobs required: 5
Enclosure: 1590B, 1590BB
