BJFE Folk Fuzz 3.5%

Another one of John's here, this time for Bjorn's DIY project, the Folk Fuzz.  I can't find the original post with Bjorn describing this but I think most people know what it is.

    1. You could use any pnp, like a 2n3906 (That was what I used) or a 2n5087
      Check out the topic in the forum (contributions - layouts - page 2)

  3. Built it and the audio passthrough was totally clean. Re-seated the transistors in their sockets, and everything works perfectly. What a pleasant surprise. A very nice fuzz. Great work John!

  6. Really like this fuzz because of the overdrive/distortion characteristics. Thinking of building a second one. Are there any suggestions for mods? I see some circuits use green LEDs, germanium transistors or diodes in the second clipping stage. Thanks!
