Rickenbacker - Transonic Fuzzstortion in pedal format.

Postby Rambozo96 » 21 Dec 2019, 03:55

Just finished this Rickenbacker fuzz circuit found on the Transonic amps that the likes of Led Zeppelin and Steppenwolf used as a backline. Wanted to know how it sounded and didn’t have the room or the cash for a Transonic so I did the next best thing by building one. The schematic didn’t specify what the fuzz circuit used for transistors so I used 2N2222A’s since i had a bunch of those on hand needing be used up. Here’s a clip of the fuzz in action. Very ratty! Unfortunately due to the lack of in depth clips of the Fuzzstortion in action I have no idea how close to the real thing I am.

Any chance you could post the schematic you ended up with? I've been looking at the original amp schematic and I'd like to know what all you chopped away to make it work.
