Been a while... Fuzz
« on: November 28, 2010, 04:19:46 AM »
This is a rehouse of a one knob fuzz pedal, which also marks my return to the world of pedal building after a fairly long break.

Shielded wiring, a switchable pot which works as a mid boost and a footswitchable gain boost which sends the fuzz to the brink of stability.  Fun!

 I really like those transistors and knobs.  What finish is that?

Looks like a factory Hammond finish. Those are extremely durable.

Knobs are great :)

The knobs are from Sato Parts, a Japanese manufacturer

The finish is actually "spray stone" for giving things a fake granite effect.  The black one looks nothing like stone, but it's really classy over a black base coat.  I was aiming for that Toneczar look on the cheap :D

Time to get back into building again!

Next up is the Kokbox that's been sitting populated on my bench for about three months.

That finish is very cool.  It reminds me of blackstone appliance.
