Now direct-connect compatible, though the image doesn't show the updated PCB
All-time classic fuzz. Huge, smooth sounds available from this great circuit. Super-saturated lead tones, or great chord work with the guitar volume knocked back.
Supplied with PNP AC128 or 2N404 transistors or you can have the kit without cans if you want to source your own.
You can even swap a couple of components and make yourself a Marshall Supa Fuzz (much fatter, bassier tone than stock) or a Vox Tone Bender MkII (slightly bassier, not a lot).
The circuit has board-mounted pots for minimal wiring and simple enclosure mounting.
Would qualify as easy but you need to adjust two trim pots to bias the transistors. A multimeter is recommended, though you can do it by ear.
Use in conjunction with a Power Pump or the charge-pumped daughterboardif you want to power the PNP version on your standard polarity daisy chain.
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: 25 x 22mm
Knobs required: 2
Direct-Connect compatible (4-way)
