MXR - Super Badass Variac Fuzz

Postby dbalu » 05 Jan 2018, 01:56

Hello,
As I am an avid cloner myself, I thought that it's my time to give something to the DIY community. I got ahold of the effect mentioned in the title and I am providing some gut shots, also a list with components. Capacitor values on the list have "?" due to my lack of experience with SMD components. Where there is no indication on the list will be completed tomorrow then I'll get a magnifying glass. All other info from the list are markings on the components (mostly SMD).
Here are some links to the pictures. The final picture is the components list.

Hello... I think I saw a YouTube video, where the guy explains how the "super badass" came about... It's a "Band of Gypsy" fuzz with a tone added....and then the "variac" circut added on...
You could start your search there...

Good luck
