    Best inexpensive Hendrix-style fuzz

    I’ve built several BYOC kits and their quality is top notch. Their documentation is very thorough and noob friendly. I would put GGG as a close second behind BYOC for a noob friendly build.

    Looking for a Germanium Fuzz Face DIY kit

    I'm not sure if this kit will ever be re-stocked but I have gassed on it for awhile now: Electrosmash has some really good circuit breakdowns of well known pedals and the Fuzz Face is no exception...

    Choosing gain potentiometer value for SD-1 mod

    I am not sure I really understand how pot value works for the gain control in a circuit. I'm hoping somebody can explain like I am 5. I modified an SD-1 and changed R6/C3 to give the pedal more gain. It still has the stock 1M pot. I have all the gain I need at about 12 o'clock. Am I correct in...

    New Wampler DIY Mod Book

    What qualities enable a pedal to cleanup with guitar volume??

    Thanks for the responses Mojotron and cousinpaul. I did find that a treble bleed circuit helped. I ended up using a 2.2n on my HSS Strat without a resistor, it sounds good but still needs some tweaking. I would say that I use enough gain to play 70s classic rock but not enough to play heavy...

    Guitar pot with built in Boost?

    Durk, What kind of circuit is that? I see it is designed by PedalPCB but I do not see it on their website. Is it commercially available?

    What qualities enable a pedal to cleanup with guitar volume??

    Can someone explain what helps a dirt pedal clean up with guitar volume? I recently did 11 Gauge's SD-1 to OCD conversion and while it cleans up reasonably well it does not clean up as well as I would like. It does not seem to clean up as well as the real OCD. What aspects of the circuit would...

    Question about old thread--SD-1 to OCD Conversion

    Thanks for the replies. I actually got it done and it sounds fantastic. It has a nice meaty crunch that cleans up reasonably well with the guitar volume. I think 11 Gauge may have advised connecting both wires because somewhere else in the thread he advises that a 100 ohm resistor be placed in...
