MMR fuzz

Simple(ish) two transistor fuzz with a wide range of dirt sounds and decent clean up from the volume knob:

I figure some people may well have a 100kB dual-gang pot kicking around if they've ever built a klon (for the bass control), but it can be replaced with a single gang 100kB in front of the first stage or omitted altogether (replace 10n with 100n and lose the 1uF + pot gang)

Here's a stripboard layout. Not verified yet.

I finished building one of these today, based on the transfer layout at the effects layouts blog, here: ... -fuzz.html

I used PN2222A because i have stock on hand. I am under the impression that these are just a plastic 2n2222 but perhaps they are too different.

The tone stack works. It makes my bass louder. I'm not sure whether there is really "dirt" here.

Is there a recording of how it is supposed to sound?
