Description

The Fuzz Face is one of the big classics in stompboxes. This Silicon version features 2 silicon transistors and has negative ground. So it is possible to power it along other pedals on one power supply.

This kit contains all parts you need to build a fully functional effect pedal. You can select the enclosure you want. You only need a 9V battery or power supply and 2 knobs for the potentiometers.

This kit contains all parts you need to build a fully functional effect pedal. Also very useful:

Not included in the kit, but also good to have:

  • Aluminium enclosure: select one from the top
  • 9V battery or DC power supply
  • 2 nice knobs for the pots, for 6,3mm shaft
  • Decal, transfer or transparent sheets for labeling

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.

5 from 5 True FUZZ!!

I had no difficulty mounting it.

The pedal I tested with the G3 Blues amp.

I like the sound it brings from classic FUZZ.

5 from 5 Sencillo y muy bueno para iniciarse

Es el primer pedal que he construido y ha sido todo un acierto. Con las instrucciones delante sale sin problema. Quizá la parte más complicada está en la soldadura del switch. Viene muy bien usar una PCB que está en el catálogo para el switch. No viene en el kit. Facilita mucho la tarea. El resultado es fantástico. Le doy bastante uso, mucho más de lo que esperaba.

5 from 5 Easy to build!

Its a great sounding fuzz and easy to build. Also a good kit for trying out mods on the classic fuzz face sound

5 from 5 Excellent

Excellent, facile ŕ monter. Parfait pour un premier KIT.

Seul bémol, le volume pourrait avoir un peu plus de gain. Ca doit se corriger avec un jeu de résistance je pense mais sur la version de base, cela aurait été parfait.

5 from 5 Simply great

Really easy to build, great sounding fuzz!
I’ve built three (some of my friends liked it as well) so far, and all sound great. Cleans up well as you’d expect from a fuzz face. I have played many (and expensive) fuzzes, and this one is on my board.

Wiring layout is not updated to work with the footswitch pcb, so building could be even easier.

Capacitor (C5) is not in the schematic but included. I still don’t know why it’s there. We all like some mystery in pedals i guess.

5 from 5 Simple yet versatile

Easy to build, sounds great. Preserves character of pickups, especially single coils on s-type guitars. By adjusting trimpot you can get conventional overdrive/fuzz tones, or crazy gated velcro fuzz sounds.

5 from 5 Great fuzz!

Bought this kit with top mounted signal jacks. Found that included wires where very thight in length. Maybe I could have routed them a bit more clever.
Adjusting the internal trimpot makes for a lot of varied sounds!
