Thanks for the info on the transistors. Could you please share some leakage on them transistors or collector voltages with them in circuit? I have tried some different transistors and depending on leakage and gain I have 0.2-4V on q1 and 0.3-1V on q2. I'm trying to get some spirit in the sky tones. That is clean with light picking on G string and heavy distortion with heavy picking on A string.
Just saw this, sorry for the delay. I have no measurements from a original germanium Fuzzrite to share (would be nice to know), but I've built a number of them and here's the info on my latest, which sounds just like it should. Hope to have a sound clip next week.
Q1 is a RCA SK3003, one from a batch of these I stumbled on that spec out almost exactly like 2N2613s. Gain 222, leakage 142 µA
Q2 is a RCA 2N408 gain 97, leakage 226µA
Q1E and Q2E are zero
Q1B is 51.1mV
Q2B is 92.2mV
Q1C is 0.390V
Q2C is 4.74V
I was under the impression the Norman Greenbaum fuzz was a one-off custom build someone did for him and not a Fuzzrite, BTW....is that wrong?
