i've been working on building a fuzz pedal. it's very basic, based on the bazz fuss. just a few transistors, a few capacitors, a diode and a resistor, but it sounds so fucking good. i made a darlington pair with a 2n5551 and a 2n3904, which really helped with the consistency of the fuzz. before, the cutoff was too high no matter what components i used, but that isn't an issue with the darlington pair.
i don't have any pots of the right values, so this is basically always on full fuzz and full volume lol. i also don't have the right kind of foot switch, so if you're plugged in to it, you're stuck with the fuzz.
