they're pretty good, aren't they?

 

Seem good so far, for all the components including delivery it was about £10.45 which is miles better than Maplin or RapidElectronics. Although they don't have many resistor values or potentiometer values which was a bit disappointing.

My own fuzz face variant, the "Pugfuzz":

Schematic here

 

Sound here

 

Well, before everyone starts to comment on my guitar playing:

1. this is a sample to show the sound

2. I am not a guitarist

3. I played on a lefty strat copy (stringed lefty) and I am right-handed

Righty ho... Sorry mr Vex! ... didnt know before posting...

 

But... arnt Schematics considered "Art"?...

 

Dont worry, i wont post any more Vex stuff...its his living at the end of the day...

 

still making a Fuzz Face tho :awesome:

 

any ideas for unique mods?

 

Still need a name for it tho...:happy:

Not all the stuff that Zvex has done is unique, just the combination of things and the way they interact. Buy a fuzz face PCB (such as here )

Then add things such as a voltage control (pot attached to the voltage) and a feedback loop (connect two points on the circuit with wires and a control pot to send the amplified signal back through the transistors)

There's loads of other mods for 'faces about and you won't necessarily be treading on Zacks toes

Sounds like a plan!

 

the feedback control... can it be any 2 points in the circuit?

 

thanks!

for the feedback loop, would you connect the input and output tips using a wire? and would you connect lugs two and three and have lug one go to hot input and lug two to go to hot output?

 

also, how would you wire up the voltage? just connect the positive lead of the battery to a lug on a pot? what value of the pot? any other information would be super!

i was thinking linking before and after clipping stages (transistors + diodes) with the unaffected wave... would that work?

 

and in response to Teej...

yeah, just have a pot on the inc power from the 9volt battery...

thats all you'll need... or should i say...

"all 'Joule' need"

:eek: what is that... its like a crappy 8bit schematic from habbo hotel...

 

appreciate the good intention but i cant understand that one bit... :p

 

answers to my questions would be greatly appreciated...

It's an A/B box with LEDs. If you can't tell, i'd suggest you give up on life now.

 

EDIT: It's fucking labelled on the picture!

am i understanding right that that splitter pedal would need to be plugged in to function? if so it seems a bit overkill for only powering 2 leds

It looks like it would function un-powered.

 

It's not really overkill if it's part of a pedalboard with a daisy chain. LEDs on an AB box can be extremely useful as I have found in the past in shit gigs with crap sound on stage.

Didn't read through that, just copied out of a .doc file

How simple would it be to include a dry mix signal (with a blend knob to control between fully dry -> fully wet ) to either an existing pedal or one which i may DIY as for bass a lot of pedals kill a hella lot of bass freqs?

 

also, what good UK based sites are there that sell those kits like on BYOC etc? or is it relatively cheap/quick to just order from BYOC?

Looks like it would be cheaper to buy the PCB from them along with getting a schematic, then order the parts for them separately? I might also be more tempted to go for a strip board build too...

 

anyone got infos on the clean mix knobbage?
