Two Fuzzies
« on: February 17, 2016, 07:35:47 PM »
These are two DBA fuzz wars, one for me and one for a good friend, built from Fuzz Dog's pcbs. I must say, I've never played a fuzz as inspiring. I was having a lot of trouble deciding which one I'd keep. The diode rating made a surprisingly large difference in tone. One of them has a more full low end sound that's really ballsy and the other has a little less low end but a little more fizzle gross. I decided to keep the fizzle gross one. They sound similar enough though that either one is a winner and there's so much volume/gain on tap that you can really dial in a wiiiiddeee range of tones.

The etch didn't turn out too hot =/...  well.. it got too hot and the toner burned off so it's very thin. I tried etching both in the same tub at the same time so maybe that had something to do with it?.. or maybe I just didn't apply the transfer well enough this time. Either way... I spray painted it teal and it just looked ugly so I spray painted black to the top after. Some teal came out in areas I removed too far. On one of them, before I spray painted it black, I tried filling in some spaces with a pink acrylic paint pen... did not work out well... but that's why one has some pink as well. Overall, I'm pleased though :) black paint to the rescue. It's a raw sounding circuit so the grunge box suits it well.

Nice! You've convinced me to try the circuit. I love that etches can still look pretty damn cool even when they don't turn out exactly like you thought they would.

Exactly how they SHOULD look! I really have to order from Fuzz Dog and build one of these. Great job!

Paint Job looks great to me. Suits the character of a pedal like this perfectly.
I've wanted to build on of these since hearing that it's Ty Seegals Fuzz of choice.
Definitely want to build one now

Thanks guys :). I made a quick demo video for my friend. Here's the link on the tube for anyone interested in hearing how one of them sounds:
