Breadboarding DIY Pedal Basics Fuzz

Silicon Fuzz Face – PNP Version

I did a post on how to modify circuit from using NPN to using PNP transistors, and as a bonus I added a quick note on how to do this for Fuzz Face. Now it’s time to actually do it. I’ll breadboard a Fuzz Face clone, and then I’ll swap NPN transistors with PNP transistors. […]

Breadboarding DIY Pedal Basics Tone Control

Adding Tone Control

After spending my sweet time going through a few boosters – it’s time to make them better. Adding some sort of tone control to a guitar pedal is a great way to make it better. In this post I’ll explore some of the ways to get a useful tone stack for your build. I’ll be […]
