Fat Furry Freak - board-mounted pots

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. Those board-mounted pots take all the headache out of this build.

If you want to make a version with a different pot configuration take a look at the wired version of the kit.

There's also 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.
