Thug Fuzz


A gloriously simply build of one of the best Fuzz Face-derived pedals available. Solid, predictable meaty filth available across the range of the single Dirt control, with loads of response to playing dynamics. It just works!

Parts are provided to build both Normal and Dark (much more bottom end) versions, and this latest version even lets you have both at the same time, selected with a DPDT toggle switch.

Board-mounted pot for minimal wiring and easy enclosure mounting.

Kit is available with a standard sized 1590B enclosure with battery, or a mini 1590A (36 x 90mm) enclosure with DC power only, though be aware that you'll be wiring in a very confined space, especially if you go for the 1590A/Switched combination. If you include the switch in the options your enclosure will be drilled to take it.

Those funky friends of FuzzDog, LongFallBoots, have a demo vid right here

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. 1590B will take a battery, 1590A will not. Does not include knobs.

Difficulty: Easy (Medium with switch option)

PCB size: 34 x 23mm

Knobs required: 1

Enclosure: 1590B, 1590A

If you want the kit pre-built you must add the enclosure option below and select your knobs in the Components section. Check Specials for powder-coated enclosure availability.

Great build, great sound! 5 product stars
"This will tear your house down. Nice and tidy build, easy assembly, quality parts. Thick and crisp fuzz sound with a whole lot of bottom end even in the "normal" version. Recommended!" Sverre - 18/02/2014
Gloriously Unsubtle Fuzz! 5 product stars
"Soldered up the 'dark' version in a couple of hours. Worked first time. Excellent price, clear instructions, simple build, seriously chunky fuzz tones - what's not to like?!? Get one!" Matt P - 17/06/2013
VALUE 5 product stars
"I've built three of these now, one for me and two for friends as gifts. They've appreciated the glorious racket as much as I had hoped, and at this price it's a pretty cool gift: a hand built, high quality, solid block of fuzzy rock. Very proper indeed." steve - 19/04/2013
