  2. I've notified Miro but he's away from the computer so just wanted to let people know that this one's verified and it's a pretty good fuzz for such a low parts count!

  3. First IC build for me, super simple and effective but nothing stellar. Used 47klin pots, no worries. Thanks guys!

    1. And i'll take my words back and eat them! Works great with a tube amp with slight hair on the sound already.
      Great little circuit.

    2. I thought this might be a good circuit.. Kendrick doesn't do anything half way - and looking at the design, it was (and is) like all the other Kendrick products. Simple, but still better than anything else :)

  4. Yes, familiar enough. I'll make the stock a bit more gritty by replacing that 1k with a jumper, we'll see how it goes as it needs just a bit more push to make it from good to great pedal and worth to box up :)

  5. 1k resistor paralleled with 5k pot makes for a nice boost level control.
    Goes fairly wild on minimum resistance, so could be in series with 100r resistor or so.

  6. Would 25k lin be sufficient for the Volume pot?

  7. I built 2 of these! First one in front of a booste grande! Man the sustain is amazing! Stand alone unit sounds great but boost this circuit more wow! Great sounding pedal!

  8. D3 works as polarity protection, right?
