Fuzz has octave. Not intended.
« on: September 26, 2019, 10:44:06 AM »
Built a metal oxide fuzz (diy guitar pedals Australia ) last night. Has an unintended octave. Common reasons that this might happen?

Is this the circuit your referring to? Did you make any value changes or substitutions?

That is the board. No value changes. I知 pretty anal about testing components before using. But I知 happy to check because I知 a human and prone to error

How is the output volume? Do you have multiple mosfets you can test with?

Should note that the pedal worked correctly before boxing.
