"Fatso Fuzz" - a sort of Pudgii
« on: November 28, 2013, 08:31:39 AM »





I had a request for a Fat Fuzz Factory clone and ended up using the cap arrangement from the Pudgii build doc on a GuitarPCB Industrial Fuzz PCB.  Usually I don't care for their PCB's, but this one was laid out by someone else (Bruce R. IIRC) and it was really nice to work with.  I unded up using 100nf, 330nf, and 2u2 on a DPDT On/Off/On switch with the 100n bridged across the middle lugs so you get 100n, 430n, and 2u3.  The guy I built it for didn't want the traditional Z.Vex layout so I put it in a wedged 125B.  It has a bypassable Klon Buffer on the output.  I usually find most fuzzes to be fun, but kind of one core tone per pedal, maybe some versatility by rolling back guitar volume, but this thing is incredible how different it can get depending on settings.  I have two etched PCB's selfdestroyer made for me from the Pudgii build doc and I am going to build a 2-in-1 for my board using them.

Is that hand painted? If so, very well done!

Agreed with everyone, it's super nice, both inside and outside.
