Husky boy Verified working
« on: November 20, 2017, 03:05:19 PM »
This Paul C design is priceless. I made a Vero from an ancient torchy layout that sorta worked. But this bad boy KILLS. Its about as good as a clean booster gets. I used a c10k for the gain pot and that was alotta help with dealing with gain spread. It sounded a bit too harsh with the j201 so I used Q1-2n5458 Q2-2n5485 Q3- 2n5458 and it sings glorious sweet sweet music. Thanks madbean this one is a definite keeper. I'm making a few more tonight to give to friends for Christmas. If that's cool

Cool, glad you like it! The Fat Bastard was maybe the 5th or 6th pedal I built way back when. I gave it to a buddy of mine but I should really build another one. One thing to try - the Orman Mosfet Boost and Fat Bastard in series sounds insane.
I own madbeanpedals (duh). I am part owner of Function F(X).
