Re: Fender - Fuzz Wah ( 1st edition ) [schematic]

I realize this is an old thread but I have one of these I am working on and wonder if someone could answer a question, please? :-) In the pic of the board there are 3 electrolytic caps on the vintage board but the schematic only shows two for some reason. The one by it's lonesome towards the top of ...

Re: Mike Matthews Freedom Amp [schematic]

I worked on one of these a few years back and had a schematic but will have to dig it out.

Why the amp sounded so good came down to the transistors used.
they were same transistors used in vintage fuzz boxes that fetch so much dough.

Re: Klon Clone Issues

I have no horse in the race but the BYOKC. Build your own Klon build your own tone and all the other key words used by this guy do not make up for the fact that the pedal won't sound right for the simple fact that he uses the wrong value components all over the place in that circuit. I built one onl...

Capacitors for sale (make me an offer!)

OK Here is a list of what I have in box #1 (future boxes to follow) Let me know how many you need and I will start counting. FYI, I have no idea how many of each that I have and pretty much weigh them by the pound so I need to lessen the load over here. radial electrolytics 33uf 10v 33uf 16v .1F 5.5...

Re: Roger Mayer - Axis Fuzz [traced]

I may as well add this to the thread for anyone interested in turrets or ptp wiring: Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz - IvIark.png On Fuzz Central there is a recommendation to omit the 220R + 1nF in column 5 so it may be worth experimenting. Axis fuzz turret layout.PNG I was looking at the layout and just wan...

I don't care for the Cancel/speed pedal feature on mine. I'd rather be bypassed than canceled, so I stick it in a loop. One big reason is the volume drop when it comes out of cancel. By grounding that transistor, the phase shift stops and you get full signal. When effect is kicked in, phasing start...

Thanks for the pic! Once again the same layout. The differences are in the caps used. Funny they all have the zero ohm resistor due to using the same layout. The GCB95 has two open spots for parts used in the JH and other wahs. All of this stuff has already been posted and really nothing new here. T...

Oh my bad....one board is green and the other one is brown.
Also one says "Vox" and the other doesn't.

Man, at first I thought they were the same pedal.

Notice the zero ohm resistor at R17 in your Budda pic?
This is actually better off as a jumper.

It's the same pedal.
I already verified this to be true.
