Voodoo Lab - Superfuzz

Postby marshmellow » 25 Aug 2007, 08:15

Hi,

does anybody know more about this pedal? It's actually a Jordan Bosstone plus a tone control and some kind of bass booster. I have looked for a schematic but maybe somebody knows more about it or how to achieve these things the appropriate way.


Thanks,

Volker

i've been studying the boss tone lately and i'm wondering if there is a schematic for the voodoo lab super fuzz available.
i've been google-ing for a while with no result...

maybe someone can trace one?

Comes more time, comes a schematic. Right now I can't do it, so if someone's in a hurry I can give him the parts values. The transistors are a 2N2907 and a MPSA18. The upper IC is a H11F3, a photo FET optocoupler (for whatever they used it here). The other one is a TL062.

Bypass switching as in all VL pedals.

seems like a complex way to add some tone control to a bosstone...
i was hoping for something simpler, but still looking forward to a schematic, or maybe even a torchy vero layout? :?:

There is a "2SD95?" for Q2 in the schematic. Is that the correct part or is it something else? Someone mentioned a 2N2907...

Wow, it takes all that extra stuff to ruin the sound of a perfectly good Boss Tone? :hmmm:

It was a TO18 metal can transistor with a "D95" mark on it. 2N2907 is in To18 packgage, but i have found no 2sd95 datasheet. So, 2N2907 is probably right.

Yes, but it's heavily modified. I'll put it up here if you want.

I loaned my Superfuzz out to this incredible guitar player; he loves it and bought his own.

Now the problem is that the new one sounds different. He checked it with mine and LOVES mine.......
