Funny.... a complete different pcb-layout than those two I have seen before...

Anyhow, here is the only valid schematic for the two units I´ve seen before - the factory schematic is incorrect.

has anyone here played one of these? if so how do they sound? searching for demos on the net have come up short

im contemplating putting one together but im having second thoughts...

is it going to sound grindy like satisfaction? or grindy like poop.

could i substitute easier to get a hold of transistors such as 2n3904's for the trannies?

if you demand satisfaction, why not just build the Maestro Fuzz Tone? it was on the record!

ah, just use any old Ge, and adjust the bias to taste. you don't need those particular transistors. 8)

Sorry, but I don't know this box, so I just pointed to the given circuit schematic itself.

I can't confirm it, olny this, ok?

I worked on one years ago.
I drew out a schematic, and with help from the DIY stompbox forum guys I figured out I had it backwards...as in it plugs into the amp, not the guitar.
Sounded like a typical splatty fuzz, nothing great, but a nice different fuzz.

I'd sure like to hear one does anyone know of any recordings done with one?
