Esprit de Fuzz v3

Another good looking Effdub design. One could pretty easily mod this for "smooth" switch (by making the 2n2 cap from input to ground switchable) and giving it a "fuzz" control by replacing 1K resistor from Q3 emitter to ground with 1K pot. Thought i'd draw this to the spec, as some people seem to like one knob fuzzes a lot :)

Didn't see a sound clip for v3.. So, Tagboardeffects crew calling Geiri to the controls, Geiri to the controls...


  1. Haha! I'll get to it as soon as I can! I'm expecting some 2N2222 but I don't know when so I might just use a 2N3904 instead.

  2. Verified! This an unruly beast. Setting up the trimmers is really critical; from horrible gating at one end and howling at the other. In the middle, however, bags and bags of sustain! Nasty, I like it!!

    Think I'll get hold of some multiturns to make this job a bit easier or swap the 10k for something smaller. Thanks, once again yawl :-D

  3. Whoa! This thing is heavy. A thick heavy fuzz, and loud as hell.
