Re: Any idea what this could be?

So....what is the effect? Fuzz/distortion? Wah? or what? Soldering looks really crappy. U said this was "home made"?? How about some pics of the top/bottom/side etc?? Never seen anything like it.

Build a Fuzz Box for Electric Guitar, Popular Electronics, February 1968

I've always liked this Popular Electronic Fuzz circuit because it had the waveforms:
"Build a Fuzz Vox for Electric Guitar" by Anthony Leo, February 1968.

Feel free to move this if U want, modman.
I have the three other pages also (entire article in jpg) if anyone wants....

keep on fuzzin'

Re: Hofner Fuzz [schematic][traced] [schematic]

can't work the way it's drawn: no feedback from pin6 to diodes.
