Thanks for sharing. My first pedals as a kid were (in order), the Supra Distortion, the Stereo Flanger, and the Meatbox. I would give anything to see a diy pcb for the meatbox. Or the buzzbox, gonkulator, vibrothang...

I've always been interested in playing with that delay knob on the hard rock distortion.
That's not something you see very often.

Its really strange seeing a MN3007 used as a "delay". I imagine with sub-50ms delay its more chorus-y than echo-y.

It does that doubled sound that was all the rage in 1988.

Wowzers! I remember the ads, but a handful of those I don't remember at all. Nice collection, for sure!

FYI,  I got that Buzz Box before the super spike in prices.  It cost me a princly sum of $175, with box and instruction booklet.

That stupid thing is reaching Klon level prices on eBay and Reverb.
If you have one (or a meat box or a gonkulator), I'll buy it for $100.  Or you can try and sell it online for whatever crazy price someone else will buy if for.

I guess the Buzzbox is basically a Grunge and a Blue Box with a mix control?  It would be a nice project to trace and figure out.

I've owned quite a few DODs over the past few years. On the dirt side, I think the Classic Fuzz is my favorite.

The FX-96 is also a great pedal and can easily be modded to do super-long repeats that sound like robots are attacking. :)

The reason there are 150 parts on a "fuzz" PCB is that DOD's input/output buffering and bypass system uses a lot of parts, and also they use op amps for pretty much all dirt/gain, AND they tend to use gyrators instead of passive filters (and that adds more op amps and R/C parts).
