Old-school germanium fuzz tone machine from Burns (and don't forget Baldwin!).
This is a positive ground effect, which means much woe if you want to power it on the same daisy chain as your standard polarity pedals. But wait... this new version of the kit has an optional onboard voltage inverter, which means your power supply won't complain.
Very similar to a Tone Bender Mk III. Excellent sustain and very tweakable with the Balance and Timbre controls. This is the heaviest version of a Tone Bender type circuit these ears have come across.
Currently supplied with AC128 transistors, or you can have the kit without cans if you want to source your own.
Designed for vertical mount pots (which have round shafts), but you can wire up 'normal' pots with splined shafts if you prefer.
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 take a battery. Knobs are not included.
PCB size: 50 x 32mm
Knobs required: 3
Direct Connect compatible (4-way)
