Yesterday, 06:19 PMThere are so many! Fuzzrite, FY-2, Fuzz Factory, Harmonic Percolator, FZ-1A, Buzzaround, Soda Meiser... A Rangemaster is maybe not a fuzz but you should definitely do one.
Definitely check out the Buzzaround! It's kindof a Tone Bender but it has its own thing going on and it's very usable. The Harmonic Percolator is also very unique and interesting
And here are some fuzzy guts from that 69/MK1.5 hybrid
Yesterday, 03:05 PMThanks pup! The trem sounds great with fuzz too
Speaking of fuzz, I just rebuilt a Fulltone 69/MK1.5 hybrid that I built a while ago with some different transistors.
I used an RCA 2N217 from an old radio for Q1 and a cheap Chinese germanium transistor of all things for Q2. Kindof a weird pair on paper but they sound great! Thing is I selected them very specifically for their hfe and leakage so the actual part number is sortof secondary.
That Chinese transistor is actually great.. It has an hfe of about 136 which is higher gain than I normally use but I wanted to freak out with this pedal and it totally rips!

Here's a clip with some pedals that I made. The fuzz tone is my MK1.5 into my Rangemaster (which is set low so that its not really boosting) and the tremolo is one that I built a while ago
Excuse the stain on my carpet. My friend spilled a coke there
11 May 2013 - 02:52 PMNO WAY!!!! LOL..... The old site manager with the dreadlocks that was at TK has a studio at YOST now, and I ran into the fooker ..... I scared the crap out of him and thanked him for wasting a month of my bands time, when he knew the place was shutting down..... We didnt mind the place, but the smell was bad.... Once the notices went up on the doors we found a room at YOST and our gear was out the next day.....
We must have ran into each other????? We were in studio E-32
Yeah when we saw the notices we got out immediately. We were actually afraid we'd show up one day and our key wouldn't open the outside doors and we'd have to figure out some way to get our gear back through Mike which would obviously be a nightmare.
I was in E13. Hope my band didn't cause any problems for you guys. We were mostly there on the weekends.
11 May 2013 - 02:46 PMHonestly I've never listened to that album. Not a Clapton fan.
My advice is to throw it on your breadboard and see what you like for yourself. Don't bother with what other people and myself are using. It's such a simple circuit to tweak, you owe it to yourself to suit it to your own taste
