That's insane. By the way, that looks more like the G2 pcb that DirkH degooped for us. But it looks like silicons diodes in there, so it's likely a P1 or P2..

Does anyone want to work on setting up a new tracers fund..?
In Lou Reeds memory?
I love the NG Fuzz sound he gets on Like A Possum. Its insane and kind of unique yet something that's always been there, ay?

Because I've been chasing that Like a Possum sound for so long, I'm willing to pledge $100 toward a tracer's fund to get this one moving. Anyone else?

The description might give a hint that it's similar to a Tone Bender with an added output stage. Maybe similar to the mu amp stage in a Catalinbread Formula No. 5, which delivers a similar "dying amp" sound.

Probably is, but it's hard to know what exactly we're looking at, let alone exact modifications made, without delving further. I vote we do it!
We have a pledge of $100, earlier in the thread there was at least $20 but that was years ago so lets forget it, and also Ivlark and the bois at tagboardeffects said they're willing to do degooping work and etc.
I will be making EagleCAD PCB designs and will give out ZIPs of the CAD files. My design is going to be board-mount potentiometers and wired switches and jacks, single PCB.
I would also donate some amount of money but am financially a little tied up at the moment so I'm holding my statement of fiscal contribution back until I know confidentially how much I can put forth.

I just ordered the "Nugget Fuzz" board from Robert at Pedalpcb.com. It is based on the NG-2. No schematic up yet but...

Thanks for the heads up. Just snagged one, worth a shot anyway. I'd figured, given some of the ungooped gutshots posted earlier, that there'd be some germanium transistors in the final (speculated tonebender-ish) gain stage. Interesting. The schem on the build guide has some tonebender-isms going on. At least it's not a big muff...

If you look below the info you'll see a "download build docs"- there's the info how to build it as welll as the schematic !

Who will post the first vero layout? Should fit in a 1590B

Well, ignore what I said above about the big muff... should have looked at more than the final gain stages. Indeed a silicon FF goosed with BMP output and clipping stages as noted over at guitar-fx-layouts.

Any way of knowing if this is just someone's approximation of the circuit from the scant info in interviews over the years or did some covert degooping go down somewhere?

My PCB's stuck in the mail for the time being, anyone get one of these built up yet?
