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.
A different PCB is available for 'standard' 1590B builds - see the related products listed below.
Old-school fuzz tones from this vintage box. The original model plugged straight into the guitar jack socket - crazy!
The Bosstone has been described as a bit thin sounding, but far from it. It has a very robust tone that gets very fuzzy towards the top end of the gain control.
EHX have nabbed it for the Satisfaction Fuzz, and there are a few boutique boxes doing the rounds that use this great little circuit as a basis. Worthy.
We've included pads so you can easily add a switch to take the clipping diodes in and out of the circuit for two completely different ranges of sounds. Tasty! NOTE: Switch option is only available with side mounted DC jack.
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.
