Thinking I should build a fuzz face or something?
What are you building?
Currently building a double pedal. A custom phat Phuk boost into a custom if 6 was 9 fuzz.
Circuits are built and tested, and about to start on the case prep
I plan on buying a kit or something here soon when or if I get this stimulus check. I think i might go fuzz face, treble boost, or a mk2 bender. I plan on sourcing the parts where ever possible. Sucks that Smallbear was closed last time I checked.
I have a barrel full of copper and an oxy/acetylene torch kit, so I may go crazy with a housing. It's all ideas as of now though.
Yes building the mosrite fuzz and 4-track fuzz from fuzzdog.
I've never built a pedal, but it seems like a good time to learn.
I’m trying but I don’t have any experience. Starting with simple projects like an ABY switch. Even there, I’m struggling so far.
What's the hard part?
I haven't started yet, but now I'm scared...
Don’t be scared, it’s just me. I struggle with the terminology, using the multimeter, and just plain ignorance. I’m just trying my best to understand and learn as I go.
I was able to construct a basic “pedal” last week just by metering parts for continuity and twisting wires together. What would likely take a normal person 15min to figure out took me a few days. But it works as intended.
yes, I just realized this. Now I am not sure how I am going to get parts to try and build a fuzz face with.
I'm thinking about revisiting my shelved tonebender
Just finished modding a Vox wah V845 and loving the sound. Now kinda similar to Dunlop Jimi specs, but with my own additions.
You can still order from lovemyswitches.com if you need enclosures, jacks, etc. Also, Tayda is still up and running. At least they were last week. Granted, you can't get mojo stuff like you can from Smallbear, but you can get some bc109's and build a silicon FF. Mouser and Arrow are still delivering too I believe.
I built a a zvex super hard on clone the other day from parts I had sitting here. Really easy, sounds great. This would be a great first build for anyone to gain some confidence. It’s probably my 25th pedal so came together pretty fast.
GREAT call. Super clone.
I'm in the mood for fuzz! After payday I'm looking looking at a Mosrite Fuzzrite, and a Univox SuperFuzz from GGG if they're still shipping. I have an idea on putting the Fuzzrite into a partsocaster I'm just acquiring parts for, a pine HT strat with 1xHumbucker in the bridge.
Got some PCBs from pedalpcb, now I'm just waiting for the components to arrive. I'm building the ADHD (OCD) and the Covert Overdrive (Dirty Little Secret MkIII).
I have a couple a cool vintage transistors, I was thinking about building a fuzz around them. but I am still looking for them.
