i was just looking at the various schems on AG's site and noticed that the RM classic fuzz looked like a starting point for the woolly mammoth.

interesting.

[cynical on]
Impossible!!! Blasphemy!!!

VZEX circuits are all originals to the bone, deveped over years by Zachary himself. All possible relation to other older designs is purely coincidence. It is posts like this that hurt Zach the most. Although impossible to find evidence nowadays Zach has been very helpful to DIY-ers in the past. Is this the way to thank him for all he has generously given to the world!!???

Interesting observation. When I feel like diving into fuzz circuits again I'll check it out. Expect response around may 2015... :mrgreen:
Sorry. Plain out of planes.

The woolly mammoth was actualy designed by chuck zwicky, not vzex. But how "designed" well, its a fuzz face with a gate and tonestack.

I think the former use of the "new ideas" were already disclosed in the Wooly Mammoth thread - if not here, then in the other forum.
