DAM Buzzotron

I was just reminded of this one on FSB and although there are already vero layouts available, I thought it was worth adding to the library for the sake of completeness.  Positive ground so watch the daisy chaining or try the voltage inverter.

David Main's words:

"This circuit is a little different to a stock Buzzaround. You can still nail those Crimson tones with ease but this Buzzotron circuit will give you a little extra extension of frequency range and a little more of a tailored fuzz tone. The hand selected original transistors will have very much the same character and tone of the original pedal. Giving you great tonal break-up and control from truly ear splitting high gain to garage-y overblown decay!"

    1. Yea. Just use a set like you would for a buzzaround. I did a layout for this awhile ago before I was an admin, it's in the contributions section and there's some mention of transistors and build reports.

    3. Lol. No worries. I completely forgot about it until you posted this one. Always good to have it on the main page, not to mention I think yours is neater and more compact.

  4. Verified. Good grief what a circuit. Q1: MP20 (~60 hfe) Q2: OC75 (~80 hfe) Q3: AC125 (~115 hfe). Probably my favourite sounding fuzz build yet. I've listened to a lot of praise regarding the Buzzaround and in my book its well deserved. Thick but articulate fuzz with extremely responsive controls. Doesn't seem to be that picky about transistors either. I put 3 random AC125's in and it sounded good. Now that I measured them as per original spec its sounds epic. Thank you lvlark.
