Si Fuzztoid for my bro's Bday present

Post by Ben Lyman » Tue Oct 13, 2015 5:20 am

Completed just in time to give to my brother for his birthday tomorrow,
a Si FF circuit with some minor tweaks of my own.
Just trying to get the best sound that I can out of $7 in parts.
Ransom strat w/DiMarzio Area's -> Fuzztoid -> Li'l Dawg Prince.
Starting off clean, then fuzz w/guitar vol down,
then all over the place with the vol/tone knobs.
I hope he likes it.

Thanks Chris! It can be fun to build cheap junk that sounds great! I got 100 Jellybeans on flEaBay, measured a couple gains, and punched the numbers into the Joe Davisson FF Calculator.
Had it on the BB 5 minutes later with perfect results, no need to adjust bias, no trim pots, no nothing, just a couple voltage dividers to hardwire the gain and set max output. :cheers:
