Basic Audio Wildcat

Postby roseblood11 » 29 Jun 2017, 00:32

A very simple circuit that looks similar to the EHX Muff Fuzz, but it sounds great.
I found some pictures that show parts of the traces, so for someone who has better eyes than me it should be quite easy to trace.

My guess: first stage with 1m resistor, second stage with gain pot in the feedback loop, diodes to ground, maybe in series with a resistor.

I found another shot. Comparing all of them, the values appear to be: 2.7k (sometimes 2.74K), 3.9k, 10k, 22k, 100k (x2), 270k, 1M with one of the pcb's having an extra 1k. Other than a few values, they don't match up with the Gretsch.
