:wink:

I've unofficially quit visiting and participating in all forums, but I still browse here occasionally. I've decided I want to sell my old Fuzz Wah, but I thought the very least I can do is share some good photos of it before it's gone. I will try to measure the values of the silicon transistors too, so you can find a good substitute if you want to make one. I like the fuzz in this very much! It has a cool old-style sound that reacts well with the guitar's controls. But, if I were to build my own (which I probably will), I would definitely make a couple mods: replace the output voltage divider with a proper volume control (at full volume, it's barely unity level), and drop the superfluous 22uF input cap nonsense. Would also do the usual negative ground, since I'd only be building the fuzz part.

Never ask. Just post. Who knows someone years from now might find just what they were looking for. :D
