Lithium Fuzz [to start off 2013!]


Happy 2013 πŸ˜€

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. πŸ˜‰

The Germanium side has some reverse bias stuff going on, but nothing too crazy.

Gotta build it up now πŸ™‚

Edit 1:

Made a start on the graphic. Probably gonna keep it quite simple. Not enough hours in the day to make everything look pretty! πŸ™‚

Edit 2
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! πŸ™‚

Edit 3
Graphic finalised. Not enough hours in the day! πŸ™‚
