Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

OMG during the time this forum was down tthis pedal has developed into SAtan's Anus... It has 6 pots and possibly adding an INSANE switch. I thought I lost all this information I had in this topic I started! That god its here! This is important in the development of SATANS ANUS!!!! Check out the top...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

hey dude you were right I put a 1k resistor and it really opened up! I got it all working back how it should and soldered it well this time. I am going to have a jam with it with my friend. I recorded a much better example of it although only with a shitty behringer mic and bad mic placement so its ...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

well I spent enough time on this for now I will update when i reconstruct this out of bread board and NAIL THIS design as at one point I was in love with the phasing and overtones I was achieving. I guess it could have been from some bad soldering I was getting that effect. I have photos and a diagr...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

i actually killed the effect and now it only makes a slightly over drived tone! so frustrating now I a just trying to get it back to how it was :-( just when I was going into mass manufacturing ! at least I kinda know how I had it set up! gotta work out why the filth was so great!! Here is a better ...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

I couldnt be bothered to figure out the schematic software so just drew it... This is how it was when it sounded the best I believe. I have since changed a few things and its not as good! :-( Fiddling with the input and output caps to get the best tones outa it. Seems 30uf on input and 0.01uf and 10...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

There is nothing to stop you trying to make a living selling handmade pedals, apart from the reality of the market. I have just paid my daughter's drum teacher £32 for an hour of his time: I would probably need to charge something similar for chemistry tuition if I didn't have a salaried position. ...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

Hi thanks so much for your help! I will try and make a schematic now so I have everything recorded... :-) Will share!

I was thinking can you hand make pedals and sell them online? Is there any money in that?

Re: joyo voodoo fuzz high pitched whining on dc psu

yeah thats what I am asking innit cuz I waNNA FIX IT :-) You can't fix the thing if you don't know how it operates. Also, AFAIK, there is no proven schematic for joyo voodoo octave to compare your unit with. I wanna fix the noise thats why I posted a question about that... So I dunno what your purp...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

I got it all working and somehow removed the horrrible noise!! I connected the Q1 collector to a 103 capacitor then to the input!! hahah it works for some reason. So the input is going into this and also the other capacitor that was there normally that then connects to the base of Q1! dont ask me wh...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

thanks dude I am learning so much I actually worked out that when taking the output from the 10n cap the high pitched noise went away. But also some of the high end of the signal and it sounded more dead and muted, so I guess I can play about with that to change the high end? To be honest I put the ...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

Maybe I should start from scratch with a better schematic now I kinda know what I am doing better... Also I can order the right pots and other parts. I liked this one as I want the BIAS pot more than volume or gain. I like the FILTH pot. If I could get it all working better together. At some stages ...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

In a "standard" fuzzface, the output capacitor that leads to the volume pot would NOT be connected directly off the Q2 collector, but instead taken from the node between the 330 ohm resistor and the bias pot. Some people complain that this makes the fuzzface output a little low, and a common mod is ...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

I put it into a stripboard and it's all a bit cleaner but the terrible noise is still there. Any ideas ? Wish it was a clean signal as I actually really like it. Did I ground everything ok? The battery - plus all the earth connections all connect with the cable/output negative? I am probably doing s...

Re: problems with MESSY FUZZ

i replaced the 10k coming from the capacitor to a 10k pot I read it would act as a gain control? he said to put a capacitor across the back of it or something . I dunno what that means. Here is ther post about replacing the resistor with a pot: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/anyone-with-a-point-to-poi...

problems with MESSY FUZZ

hey there I wasnt sure what this was but I like having the BIAS knob for that weird effect. i now realise this is a fuzz face? but with a bias control? I did a bit of a botch job as I am totally noob I just soldered all the components together. I only had 10k pots for both knobs. I replaced the two ...

Re: joyo voodoo fuzz high pitched whining on dc psu

is that the big chunky oldskoool style transformers? I do not have this issue with any other pedals I own and the PSu comes with good feedback on amazon is built and marketed for this purpose. ALso other people describe the same issue with the joyo voodoo fuzz. Someone said about putting a capacitor...

Re: Joyo Ultimate Octave: how to make it useable?

if there is whistle your supply is not really good,anyway,try inserting a 100 to 470 ohm resistor between the positive voltage in input and the main filter capacitor,that should cure most of the problems. Hi thank you. But I do not have this issue with any other pedals? The power supply is decent q...

joyo voodoo fuzz high pitched whining on dc psu

Hi I attempted the mod and it seemed to do nothing also an issue started where it cuts out momentarily when the octave pedal part is activated. But the main issue is that there is a high pitched whining sound when the fuzz part is engaged and only when using the pedal with my 9v dc power supply. It ...
