Just another Fuzz Factory
« on: January 31, 2017, 10:38:12 PM »
 I order a fair amount of boxes from tayda so last order I figured I'd try one of their pcbs. The pcb was great, build document sucked (didn't show which side of the board each pot was supposed to be on) Anyway, This thing is wild! Build is pretty close to stock. I'm using a 3904/3906 combo right now but am going to audition some other transistors this week. Maybe I'll take a gut shot when I go back in there!

I like the knob configuration and the window. Coolness!
I build, and once in a while I might sell, pedals as "Vertigo Effects".

Aw man - that window is cool enough on its own, but I love how the graphic and knobs are lined up around it to kinda showcase it.

Fuzz Factory is one DIY rite-of-passage build I've yet to check off - need to remedy this ASAP.

Several cool ideas jammed into one build!

That's awesome!

Sort of reminds me of the look of Screamin FX (only they do huge cutouts):

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

cool stuff and superbly executed.

not trying to badmouth your idea with the window or anything, but just fyi, the newer line of ZVex pedals has a similar window.
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

Yup, I saw the Fuzz Factory 7 and decided I needed to build something similar with a window in it. It's basically a mismatch of the 5 knob and 7 knob. Thanks for the good words everyone. The screaminFx pedal is pretty sweet. I might actually attempt something like that in the future. Trying to figure out how creative I can get with my pedals! I do alot of custom fab at work, actually have a few one-off enclosures in the works, my welder is loaned out at the moment though.
So many ideas and pedals to build!
