4 from 5 Great Fuzz

It sounds great! Much better than I expected...
Instructions should be more detailed for electronic newbies like myself.
It was a struggle to fit everything in the stompbox without stepping components on each other.
I got one component that doesnt exist on any of the documents... Anyway I didnt used it and the pedal works just fine.

4 from 5 Good Fuzz Face-clone

This is good sounding Fuzz Face -clone, almost better than most boutique fuzzes. However, the stock transistors can be too shrill sounding...So get a pair of different transistors (bc108s for example) and you are good to go. Building was easy, and it definately can sound like other Hendrix-era fuzz-pedals.

5 from 5 juste énorme!

Bon ok il y a une petite coquille sur le schéma mais cest pour mieux se faire la main et cela se modifie en un tour de main quand on a compris le principe de cette fuzz simplissime mais qui sonne la mort ! Pour ceux qui ne pigent pas lélectronique, aller un indice, ça concerne Q1 dont les pates ne sont pas dans le bon ordre...
On mavait déconseillé les fuzz silicone car réputées trop agressives, jai fait ce choix pour pouvoir lalimenter avec lalim de mon pedalboard (plus pratique que la traditionnelle pile quasi obligatoire avec les fuzz germanium) et ben en fait euh comment dire, cest pas du tout agressif là, cest même super !!! Les transistors fournis (bien que nétant pas les BC108 de rigueur) sonnent super bien, on se croit tout dun coup revenu dans les 70s, cest dynamique, ça se met à fond et ensuite ça se travaille au volume de la guitare, pour une palette de son allant du clair expressif au bon graoumph plein de chaleur et de sustain que lon sent sur le point dexploser. Ne faites pas lerreur (comme moi) de chercher ce son qui vous fait réver depuis que vous avez entendu Jimi un jour de votre 16ème année avec une overdrive, cest de la fuzz !!! Et cest juste le pied !! Led Zep? de la fuzz ! les Who? de la fuzz !!
Vais me monter la germanium prochainement...et après ce coup de foudre, mon histoire damour pour les fuzz nest pas près de sarreter!!!
Merci Musikding!

4 from 5 Excellent fuzz, but some hiss

This fuzz sounds really great. I tried some fuzz pedals before this, even the original fuzz, and I like this one more than the others i tried. However, there is constant high-pitched noise that increases with the fuzz level or when I turn guitar volume all the way down. I tried to add the extra capacitor (100 pf) across the base and collector of transistors Q1 and Q2 and the noise decreased in different ways, but only slightly in both cases. So Im going to buy some more caps to try to make it decrease even more.

5 from 5 Excellent !

Super pédale ! Au-delà du plaisir (si ! si !) de la monter - ce qui ma rappelé les cours de techno du collège - on a là une pédale avec un très très bon son, pas de buzz et un réglage très simple. Du tout bon on vous dit !!!
