Title: #1 for 2014, The Freaky Fuzz *demo added
Post by: Guitarmageddon on January 03, 2014, 11:41:05 PM
First build of 2014; the 'Freak Fuzz.'

(http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z30/codtone/IMG_2529_zps9b08ef46.jpg)

Derived from a Ge FY-2, my turret layout, ditched the "fuzz' control, tuned the bias (Q2 is at 4.49v), added switchable output caps for a bit more beef and a polarity inverter IC for the  PNPs.

Trannies gains are Q1 = 67hfe & Q2= 79hfe.

Working on a clip...

Here it is, my first ever Cubase recording....
Playing is rough as guts, it's all improvised, no eq, mastering or any idea about anything much... :P ...but sure had fun!
Guitar is a tele with the fuzz on everything except the first arpeggiated chord. Different tones just by using the guitar controls.

Wow.  Nice etch and it's dripping with mojo!  Love the turret (amp) style build there.  Sweet.

Ah yes, the old family photos.  I thought we'd destroyed all the copies.  Odd that you'd end up with one.

Very nice etch.  Dig the turret, too.

He waiting for someone to hold up a match...

Perfect image for your pedal and extra mojo kudos for the curly-q lead on that resistor!

Kind of has a old school EHX mojo vibe to it. Wish I had the goods and know how to burn it into the box like that

Rumor has it that Archduke Franz Ferdinand wound his resistors exactly the same way.

Well based on that alone, 2014 is going to be an excellent year.

Plus Franz Ferdinand's reanimated corpse approves, so what more could a lad ask for?

Hey, thanks mate! It was your excellent FS&H demo that inspired me to try doing a demo this way. ;)
