Fat Furry Freak - bass fuzz monster

Hot! Fat Furry Freak - bass fuzz monster

This is one absolute beast of a circuit.

Four-knob box of ear-splitting fuzz. Utterly uncompromising. Fuzz control goes from zero (very, very fuzzy) to ten (broken-speaker crackle fuzz).

Though actually a bass fuzz, this is just as good on guitar, and sounds unlike anything else out there.

Most layouts for this pedal have a hefty amount of fiddly and confusing pot connection. This kit has all the madness contained within the PCB, so much simpler to get to grips with.

If you want to make things really simple take a look at the board-mounted pot version of the kit.

There's the option of going for a 5K reverse log pot for the Fuzz control which gives much better range and sweep than the original 2K linear.

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.

Difficulty: Medium

PCB size: 40 x 24mm

Knobs required: 4

Enclosure: 1590B

Check Specials for powder-coated enclosure availability.

Absolutely Great Pedal (For Bass or Guitar!!) 5 product stars
"Had to leave a review given how much fun I've had messing with this pedal over the last few weeks! A bass playing friend of mine built it, and I originally acquired it as a swap to use with my bass rig, and thinking it was too bass focused was about to sell it along with the rest of that board, but gave it a blast with my guitar setup out of curiosity... so glad I did!! Great, versatile bass-ended fuzz and brilliant on both bass and electric, its a must have for any fuzz fan!" Niall - 12/08/2016
