Happy 2013 😀
Had some free time to create a proper layout for another fuzz.
This one has 2 separate fuzz circuits – one Silicon based and one Germanium based – that can be blended together.
Each fuzz has a separate Tone (Filter) and Gain control.
The circuits aren’t straightforward either. Couple of interesting things going on.
The Silicon side has a transformer to preserve the awesome when active pickups are used.
The different primary and secondary coils try to reproduce the response of passive pickups.
It also uses the transistors in a non-selective frequency tripler (to use the technical terms).
Yep, learning something new everyday. 😉
The Germanium side has some reverse bias stuff going on, but nothing too crazy.
Gotta build it up now 🙂
Made a start on the graphic. Probably gonna keep it quite simple. Not enough hours in the day to make everything look pretty! 🙂
Name changed to Lithium Fuzz
Something about a pedal with 2 personalities. Really need to get a hipster on speed dial to name the pedals. Too much mental effort on my part! 🙂
Graphic finalised. Not enough hours in the day! 🙂
