5 from 5 Nice One

The pedal works great, its really similar (not the same...imho even better) to the original one. You can get some great sounds paying less than half price... Its really easy to mount, you only need to know how to solder...and you can even modify the pedal as you like! The service is really good and fast. Dont forget to buy the knobs and the washers and nuts for the knobs. So..go for it!

5 from 5 VERY GOOD FUZZ!!

I see no difference in sound to the original fuzz factory pedal. It was relatively easy to build the pedal (I already have some experience), but it has to be well planned to fit everything inside the box. I made a small change, added a 100k pot at the input to control the guitars impedance and better adjust the values with other pedals.

5 from 5 Easy build

It is a cool kit for beginners. A lot of cables some components and a lot of space. The sound is pretty destructed

5 from 5 crazy fuzzzzzz

Truly a factory of fuzzy sounds. Amazing packs, everything was spot on. This was my first project from musikding, I had some normal problems with short circuits but totally my fault. If youre new, my advise is to build it for a 1590BB enclosure, youll have plenty of space to put the pots and wiring without any problems. And since it is a crazy sounding device, you might want to search for fuzz factory settings online and you will plenty of resources to have fun with!

5 from 5 Intéressante

Bonjour, montage facile, avec les schémas fournis. Faut fouiner un peu mais ça va, cest tout à fait à la porté dun soudeur, cest un peu du légo.
Tout est indiqué avec des numéros sur la carte pcb.
Sauf pour le sens du footswitch qui doit être horizontal (et après dans les 2 sens cest ok mais horizontal) pour les branchements.
Les résistances nont pas de polarité. Sauf les condensateurs, la diode et les germanium, mais cest indiqué.
Prévoir les boutons des potentiomètres non fourni, et prévoir un pince pour casser le petit pins pour plaquer les potards.

Résultat, pédale très intéressante, destroy, noisy et créative. Elle peut repousser (voir cr youtube) si vous préférez une fuzz face plus classique.
Jai pris lenvoie en lettre deutsch, ça a mis 15j cest très bien emballé, protégé.
En gros, je suis ravi, pour 40€ une factory créative dont je naurais jamais voulu mettre 200€ pour sa particularité.
Une bon exercice, ce fût mon premier achat musikding, il y en aura dautres. Merci à vous 👍🧡

5 from 5 Great pedal

Thus pedal is great, a nice fuzz with lots of knobs to tweak and make the sound you like. Building it was easy. I only had some trouble with making it work with the 3pdt board. But that is mostly because of my knowlegde about understanding the circuitry. I ended up with not using the board. But i had fun with building it and the sound is great!

5 from 5 Help?

Looks great, not a lot of part to assemble but I think I screwed with the wiring. I cant play with the pedal. Anyone to send me pics of the pedals inside??

5 from 5 EXCELLENT !!!!

Il y a tellement de réglages possibles que cela peut devenir un casse tête !
Mais je ladore !! Placée juste avant la Box Of Rock, elle devient redoutable !!
Facile à assembler, le boitier BB permet de tout faire rentrer aisément.
Merci Musikding.
