Title: The Cockpit - PyleDriver
Post by: SirEgno on November 19, 2019, 03:26:08 AM
This sunday I was bored so I made a fuzz.
I was curious about the GI Fuzz, so I made the pyledriver, but changing the name. I think that mine fits better  ;D

The build itself is simple, few components, pc mount pots, the graphic is minimal.
I don't like the 125b because it's too thick, so I reduced the thickness by cutting away 8mm from the bottom, so I don't have to lift my foot very much  8)
The sound is very... as you want, there are many controls, many sounds. It is still a fuzz, but very versatile.

It certainly does have a large amount of knobs.   😂   Nice one.

Very nicely done!

I like the idea of changing the height of a 125b. Does the base still fit okay? I would think because of the slope on the sides it would not fit as well now.

Yes, I had to adapt the base, but with a dremel it took 3 minutes.

I have a question.
With high gain/fuzz/bias level I can hear a local radio. It's not a good radio, they stream shitty music, so, I want to remove this.
It is also very noisy.
I tried to put a 220p cap between Q1-base and ground, but nothing happened. How can I make it less noisy?
