Re: Zvex - Fuzz Factory [traced]

The Bottom of Q1 & Q2 are both the Collectors (you see the little blue C on the bottom of Q1) the collector on your AC128 should be the Red Dot and the Top of Q3 is the Collector of the 2N3904 Does that make sense? if so good luck :thumbsup for the fastest reply and most helpful person on here,...

Re: Zvex - Fuzz Factory [traced]

okay guys im kinda confused with this build. I dont fancy just putting the AC128's in and hoping they are right to start with, nor do i fancy re-soldering them over and over to find the right place.
Any advice on which way around to place them, or how to check once they are in?

cheers

Re: Fuzz Factory Clones?

Any ideas?

Re: Colorsound- One Knob Fuzz [schematic]

anyone know if you can do a tonebender trick on this and replace one of the resistors with a pot to reduce hiss?

not quite sure how it works on tonebenders but blondegraemey on youtube has a video of it.

Re: Colorsound- One Knob Fuzz [schematic]

built this pedal (finally) using an old behringer channel switcher as a base (judging by its habit of chewing drill bits im betting solid steel) sounds veryyyy gated and out of control but is suprisingly melodic too. Works well with an overdrive after it to boost it a little Im running mine in the e...

Ultimate Guide... hopefully!

Okay, i've built a few simple ones that work nicely (One Knob Fuzz, Green Ringer etc). Planning on a Red Llama and a runoffgroove Peppermill as a boost for my setup just wanted to see if you guys (who no doubt have loooooads more experience than my worthless tush) could offer any generic help to peo...
