Reduce Bazz Fuss noise
« on: July 31, 2017, 05:37:36 AM »
I've breadboarded a bazz fuss circuit. I've added tone control and fuzz control I'm using MPSA 13 transistor. Works and sounds great. As I imagine there is a lot of noise with a pedal like this will noise be reduced when built in a metal enclosure? Is there any way to reduce unwanted noise?

Define "noise."

If the circuit is on a breadboard, wires everywhere and you are testing it, yes there will be noise interference humming buzzing etc but effect works fine.
As soon as you have made your effect soldered put in a metal enclosure and completed. Noise will be gone.
Breadboard builds always have interference noise.

Noise is general buzzing/humming when volume is set full and not being played. Thanks for replies I'll box up and see how it goes.
