Title: Fuzz Freaks arise!
Post by: Musikerochan on April 21, 2009, 09:32:44 AM
share ko lang. first time kong maka-try ng Fuzz mga 4 years ago, and nung time na yun parang di ko na-type-an, and i was more interested in ultra-compressed, high gain sounds than a blatty fuzz (if i had an MT-2 then, i would have been happy (http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm119/musikerochan/icon_facepalm-1.gif)). i am sure there was something about fuzzes that i like, but i can not identify what it was during that time.

the unit actually was a crappy Zoom 707ii i think, probably the reason why i disliked it, as it sounded rather fake. and yes, you guessed it, i was using more ultra-compressed, noisy high gain pedals nung mga sumunod na pagkakataon.

lately i tried building some fuzz circuits, and after two successful projects, i am starting to discover how wonderful these circuits are (again). the clean-up is nice, and the circuit reacts well to the guitar's pot. amazing!
(on a side note: the RF interference can get annoying sometimes, so be sure to set the minimum volume on your Boss pedal as well :D)
(http://i294.photobucket.com/albums/mm119/musikerochan/Image003-7.jpg)

i have an NPN fuzz face and a PNP tonebender MK2 (negative ground), and these two differ greatly, just right for my needs. not of topnotch craftmanship, but delivers :D i know most of us are dirt addicts as well, and probably are into ODs and Dists more. just wanted to know who the fuzz freaks are in this forum.

fuzz freak/aficionados, arise!

Been through a bunch of fuzzes starting from the Fuzz Face of a zoom GFX-5. Next came a reissue US Big Muff, then a Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face (yung itim), then an EHX Double Muff. Tapos ngayon, gumagamit ako ng older reissue US Big Muff (with the wooden box and old style knobs). I just wish there was a way to add mids without using an OD pedal before it. Might go for a Blackout Musket Fuzz next.

^ yun nga din impression ko with fuzzes i have. either it gets too trebley pag nagrollback ng volum pot/pedal, or too bassy when gain knob is cranked.


the FF for me has more bass and quite scooped but cleans up nicely, something i cannot do with my Tonebender - just plain raw power!

will try an NPN/PNP TB MK2 build in one enclosure next time. for teH BroOtaLz.!

just kidding. i want them for their dramatic clean up. when i was new to pedals i kept reading this thing about "clean up" when you roll back your volume pot. i thought this just cuts your volume. hindi pala. it' more than taht. it's magic.

lolz... very true... look at me now... lolz...

anyway, i've had very limited experience with fuzz... i was able to try out the fuzzface and some local custom fuzz pedals... so far, i've fallen for the catalinbread v8 fuzz... pretty versatile for its size... it has found a place on my board...  :wink:

I once had these in one house at one time.

-zvex fuzzfactory
-fromunda big cheese clone (i miss this one)
-zoom ultrafuzz (is with a friend at the moment)
-lovepedal fuzz50 (on a good day it rocks, siguro mas malupit na tunog ngayon dahil palit na ako ng pick-ups sa GLP.
-skreddy zero


Only 3 remain.

A smiley fuzzface clone would be nice in the future 8-)

-zvex fuzzfactory tried. good high gain fuzz pedal.
-fromunda big cheese clone had it. now back with arnold. might get it back
-zoom ultrafuzz still have it. staying. hirap hanapin eh.
-lovepedal fuzz50 would love to try this
-skreddy zero - killed by black out. all my skreddy's are gone. lulz

no one has really done it here sa pinas. consistently making fuzz pedals. would love to try some local builds. if you're into it, here's a tip. make it a bit modern sounding. think triangle muff with bottom end balls.

What gear was used? It sounds like where the fuzz50 started off but more.

His echobaby on the chain....maybe?

How biased was it from your point of view as im out of the loop from effects for quite awhile?

I based it on the other demos. There's probably an echobaby in the end. Like the Pickle vibe. Cables were GL's. Amp was a tweed combo probably a Fender. Guitar I am not sure. I am wondering how it would sound if the gear used were different. Cheaper gear like an MIK or MIC guitar, and SS amp or even a china made amp. Pretty subjective. The video helped sure, but the best way to find out if it really rocks my socks off is to get one. Soon. Lulz.

pero siyempre, walang katapusang pag-aaral ito. i'll build my staple stomps muna then plunge nako to more DIY (ambisyosong DIY) stuff, and tweak tweak :)

Hey pallas! Sold the fromunda, but now it is back with me!
Almost sold the Fuzz50, but chose to retain it, and now has a permanent
place in my pedal board.

Stacking it with the rat, can get me Wilco fuzz tones, ala the theologians solo! Yes!

The Fromunda is great also for Wilco's I'm the one who loves you and Neil Young Riffs!

I have a fulltone 69 now but i am selling it.  :)

germanium refers to the kind of transistor used. meron din kasing silicon (so far eto lang yung alam ko :D)


built a tonebender silicon naman (first one was germanium) and sa lahat ng nabuo ko ito yung umandar right away (the six others needed a little retouch of the solder connections or some baliktad na orientation ng caps; i must be improving :D)

what can i say? it has the same Tbender rasp like the germ version. i modified the board a bit para kasya pag horizontal sa 1290NS. pero baka pagsamahin ko na lang yung germ at silicon TBenders sa isang malaki-laking enclosure.

------------

finished buidling din a FF sili-clone. ibang-iba dun sa nauna kong nagawa. this new one cuts bass and parang ma-mids, while yung earlier build ko is bass-y. in fact, i can use the 1st FF for bass. yung second one hindi pwede, prang mababa yung output pag bass, pero ok naman yung volume pag sa guitar ko ginamit.

and may external bias pot (20k linear) yung new FF clone. sweet spot is about 3pm, 4-5 gives you more output/cleaner headroom. tweak it to about 12-10am for some gated/stutter fun.
---------------------

marami pa kong dapat matutunan.

I really like the sound of fuzz, but I haven't tried one for myself. I'm thinking of buying one, after I acquire all the 'basics' that I need (just one OD left to go. haha).

Bes fuzz, IMO, that I heard - Lovepedal 200lbs. of Tone

Na-appreciate ko ang fuzz because of Eric Johnson.. Jimi Hendrix came afterwards. I know, I know, baliktad.  :lol:

man, i think this really is better, rids the output of the ultra-boomy sound pag metal film cap gamit ko.

The fromunda rocks i tell you. Pag di lang kami umuwi at di expecting si kumander i would still have that puppy.

The fuzz50 simply sounds awesome chained with a delay. I wasted lots of time just me and my usual chain suspects conjuring slow swampy psychofuzz beerfest tones.

hehe, yun ang prob. i dont have yet a decent recorder (sorry poor lang :D), pag sa CP lang di ubra, parang tunog utot lang eh :D iba pa rin pag personal. yung FF is basic silicon Fuzz Face lang. mejo muddy, ewan ko, im playing on a cheap solid state amp pa lang (ipon muna konti at tubes naman nyehehe). it has its basic staple of bass pa rin (prominent when i hit an E chord) pero di masyadong woofy. The TB MK2 is tighter, i used a different output cap value para di masyadong ma-bass (the Si FF too, i changed the ouput cap).

------------------

kagabi tinapos ko tong isa pang Si FF, the Princess Fuzz. i added a pregain control to shape the signal that will hit the circuit. i think this is great pag tamad akong galawin yung volume knob ng guitar when i want a lower gain fuzz without sacrificing the gain control nung FF circuit. it has a mid control too, parang added boost lang and further shaping ng tone. i think this one is really really versatile.

kakatuwa kasi before i was into ultra high gain/compressed sounds, therefore keeping me buried in the mix. rolling back the guitar volume or easing on the gain pot pala makes wonders. parang break-up tones pero clear. i can't attest how good these creations are, pero these simply bring a big fat smile on my face, whether low gain or full gain.

--------------------

ive finished na the Mosrite circuit. basic circuit lang, pero octaves are there when using the neck pick up. im under the impression na parang TB MK2 lang din to somewhat. idk, maybe my ears are just tired.

the enclosures are unpainted and sticker lang talaga yan. once makakita ako ng matinong paint, kulayan ko.

building them is fun. debugging isnt. lately parang nagiging confident na ko sa builds ko, unlike before i wasnt expecting each circuit to work agad.

"your hobby is really expensive," reklamo ng nanay ko hehe.

@ Gas God Turi,


what is your opinion regarding low gain fuzzes (i.e., Ge FFs and the like), Silicon vs. Ge sound etc.? im thinking kasi of tweaking an FF to lower its gain, i dont know how much fuzz afficionados like low gainers.

o talagang high gain talaga type ng madame?

----------------------------------

and update, yung Si FF dun sa Hagaren Fuzz ko is wala na. pinalitan ko ng another low gain fuzz, not based sa FF/TB/FR. and wow, clarity! sarap idale ng rhythm parts!

the Si FF is pulled out for "operation" hehe.

I'm using germaniums for my rehoused Fuzzface. Dual germanium as stock of them red fuzzfaces i got two years ago. pretty high gain which is what i want as well.

um, im lost. madame? sino? ha? you think I'm a she? :lol: or you have chicks you can recommend that i can treat to dinner?  :evil:

make high gain fuzz pedulz man. FF type pero mega oscillators. oh, switchble channels via stomp switches. not toggles. lemme know what you've got cooking, id love to try them

hehe, my bad. it should've been "madami" not madame.

update: i tried some piggyback mods on the Si FF. i dont know how this compared to Ge FFs, the only Ge fuzz i have tried is one Tbender MK2 copy i built, and that one is still a high gainer since it is said to be a Rangemaster into FF kind of fuzz. Si FF with piggybacked trannies = adjustable gain. some players like daw yung low gain Ge FFs kaya i tried that mod. i used the old Tonebender enclosure ko for this, ubos na enclosure ko eh, so that one's pulled out, di na for sale :D

yung stock Si FF, parang muddy pag full gain. ang maganda lang e pag binaba yung volume pedal, lumilinaw. not really clean but parang slight break up tone, bluesy. yung modded ko isnt, idk, maybe it's just me. mas enjoy na ko ngayong gamitin full gain tong bago.

im also tempted to try Beavis' mods on FF.

next project ko is an Octave > Mosrite fuzz. getting some enclosures soon. bad trip lang talaga di pa connected PC ko sa net, nilipat kasi ako ng kwarto hehe.

--------------------

on high gain, i read sa PGS that the Barber TRifecta is a TBender copy. ano bang opinyon ng mga naka-try na about Tonebenders?

hehe thanks. update: im on the process of tweaking new fuzz circuits, parang nagsasawa na ko sa sound ng vintage fuzzes e. mas trip ko magkalikot ngayon kesa gumawa ng straight clones. para mas customized.

meron din akong natapos na heavily modded Si FF. it has a pregain control which is think is key to its tone. ibang-iba.

ty sir Turi, yung mga parts naman na needed ko is available na dito, although wala dito sa town namin yung ibang components, meron naman akong bagong source hehe. mura. yung dio sa place namin mapapamura ka sa sobrang mahal, grabe. imagine, a 10uF electro costs P10, per piece yun ha.

-----------------

ayan, yung ginawa kong magkasama sa isang enclosure gusto ko nang butbutin ulit. balak kong i-house lahat ng fuzzes na gusto ko (i am thinking 5 circuits atm) into one enclosure. sayang kasi ang real estate eh hehe.

----------------

once nag-jam ako sa isang banda hindi na-type-an ng bassist yung fuzzes ko. masyado daw sabog. hehe, e diba nga hard clipping yun? nung inexplain ko hindi din naman nila naintindihan hehe.

mas sanay sila sa distortion tones, and the hard compression that comes with it.

ang balak ko pag natapos ko is i-ship tapos lend it for a couple of gigs. samahan ko ng something like a checklist para magka-idea ako ng solid feedback, and kung anu-ano yung strengths and weaknesses for imrovement naman ng builds ko. then pasa naman sa iba for judging hehe.

magiging Journeyman kung anuman yung pedal na papadala ko. pag-aralan ko lang muna maige, di din kasi pede ako maglakas ng amp ag gabi, nababato bubong namen e nyehehe.

just built another stupidly-simple-but-modded-to-hell na circuit. i built one dual channel tapos nilagay ko yng circuit na to. it had three knobs, voiced to suit my taste (i prefer silicon diode clipping talga, germ sounds too farty sorry). deluxe version hehe.

i built another one using a "recycled" enclosure, pero one knob lang using the same (almost) circuit.

will post pics soon. i miss na you guys eh.:D

i'll be honest, i thought it was made to sound like tool. :-P i think i read that on a review, if only i can recall where i saw that.

i was in no position to test as my friend who went to the states was the one who bought it and the only way i can actually hear out one is on the devi ever website and youtube, the best one i heard was this one. everything sounded almost the same. it was an impulse "pabili" because my friend was already on the way to the guitar store and i had to find a fuzz with little time and research.  :lol: bad decision making, i know....

very little regret though. at least for now, i have something unique and not the common Big Muff/Boss kind. timpla timpla nalang kailangan...

i'm sure interesting din to. it's made naman for noise and high gain fuzz. my taste leans towards the more extreme sounding fuzz like this and pedals of this sort. there are some fuzz lovers that are into the creamy warm fuzz tones and some naman who dig the sputtering decay, high gain torn speaker sound. i've been wanting to get the disaster fuzz myself because i'm curious about the oscillation switch, but turi says not to waste my money with that and just get a rocket or a shoegazer...or a mangler which is 300 dollars. (yikes) personally, i want them all. ha ha ha.

iba rin yun cguro. galing nung devis e. parang yung fuzz responsive pa sa pickup selector at sa roll back ng volume knob when the drive is dimed. interested din ako dun sa feature na yun. i dunno lang sa aenima kung ganun sya. ok din yung mga parang family computer 8 bit sounding fuzz. parang [avocado] yung tunog.

new fuzz on proguitarshop.com is the retro channel fuzz.

looks cool. tone bender mkII derivative.


(http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w270/tomatoisasound/Screenshot2011-05-29at91350PM.png)

The Retro Channel Fuzz could be the ultimate solution for those Page and Beck tones without the hassle of worrying about the effects of temperature or time on those fragile germanium transistors.  Retro Channel has developed a proprietary chipset that delivers pure MK2 fuzz tones without the use of germanium for a guaranteed tried-and-true tone that will handle all the rigors of the road or inclement weather without ever losing that glorious fuzz tone.  The Retro Channel Fuzz works extremely well with the guitar’s volume knob, cleaning up when it needs to, and delivers punchy, in your face MK2 fuzz at all settings.  When dimed out, that thick, rich sustain will go on for days on single note lines and when the Attack is backed off, the Retro Channel Fuzz delivers perfect rhythm crunch.  No more will your MK2 fuzz sound different every time you use it, the Retro Channel Fuzz solves this problem and many more and will consistently deliver the tone you hear in your head time after time.

a new fuzz from devi ever: the silver rose

(http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w270/tomatoisasound/devi.jpg)



description from devi's site:

The Silver Rose is quite simply a classic Super Fuzz and IC Big Muff design combined together with a Mixer that allows you to blend seamlessly between the two fuzz sounds, and includes a clean knob, and active bass / treble EQ knobs (that can be bypassed).

This unique design was commissioned by Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins and is now available for everyone to enjoy! :D  He wanted something classic with the ability to sound more modern... the solution was the dual EQ + ability to blend together what I believe are his two favorite fuzzes.

Made from top-quality boutique components professionally board mounted with a "soft-touch" footswitch utilizing relay switching, which makes replacing the foot switch a breeze years from now when you've put the pedal through millions of hours of good rock and roll use. :)

Powered by a standard negative tip 2.1mm 9 volt DC jack, or 9 volt battery via internal connector.

i suggest you get a fuzz face AND an NYC big muff. then your love affair w the fuzz begins... later na yung mga octavia and tonebender stuffs.

Hmm hendrix used a fuzz face, frusciante used a big muff i think. Try to check out which sound you like more and get that one.


I was gonna go with frusciante's fuzz pedal but I saw a pic of his board he had a boss fz-3 pedal which I think is pretty rare so I gave up on that one. :lol:


i suggest you get a fuzz face AND an NYC big muff. then your love affair w the fuzz begins... later na yung mga octavia and tonebender stuffs.

Thanks for the suggestions. Any ideas on how much they are and which store carries those brands? I'm not really familiar with those brands.

John now uses English Muffin. Nagkaroon din siya ng Russian muff, Zvex Fuzz factory sala Fuzzrite, di ko na alam yung iba.

Sa JB music store may fuzz face at alam ko may NYC Big Muff pa sila. Di ko sure yung price ng fuzz face pero yung NYC BIgg Muff around 5K pag sale. Check mo din sa classified, may nagbebenta ng big muff dun 3k or 3.5k ata.

Question: Ano ba sa tingin nyong fuzz pedal yung tipong naiipit na napupunit yung tunog?

its the gated fuzzes that have the sputtering decay. devi ever marami nun. mga "velcro" fuzzes. vecro kasi yung sputtering decay niya parang velcro na binubunot yung tunog.

meron din naman yung parang wasak na speaker. yung muff kaya yun.

fuzzfactory has those sounds. ok din siya, but too harsh and sharp for some.

GASSING for this FUZZ.

http://ironether.com/pedals/oxide/

Great for bass but also good for guitars.  Has a brassmaster fuzz to a super gated fuzz depending on settings. 

I already have a swollen pickle (muff derivative) so getting the IE Oxide will (hoping, crossing fingers) end my FUZZ gas.

Also tempted to get the Fuzzhugger Arc Flash Fuzz that is FS here in the classifieds.  Great for "weird" face peeling fuzziness, that I do NOT need on my board/sound, but soooo do want.  :-D

a new fuzz from devi ever: the silver rose

(http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w270/tomatoisasound/devi.jpg)



description from devi's site:

The Silver Rose is quite simply a classic Super Fuzz and IC Big Muff design combined together with a Mixer that allows you to blend seamlessly between the two fuzz sounds, and includes a clean knob, and active bass / treble EQ knobs (that can be bypassed).



This unique design was commissioned by Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins and is now available for everyone to enjoy! :D  He wanted something classic with the ability to sound more modern... the solution was the dual EQ + ability to blend together what I believe are his two favorite fuzzes.

Made from top-quality boutique components professionally board mounted with a "soft-touch" footswitch utilizing relay switching, which makes replacing the foot switch a breeze years from now when you've put the pedal through millions of hours of good rock and roll use. :)

Powered by a standard negative tip 2.1mm 9 volt DC jack, or 9 volt battery via internal connector.

the TYM fuzz munchkin

(http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w270/tomatoisasound/P1040480.jpg)



supposedly, this is the mojo of the V3 big muff that J mascis uses.


description from Jmascis.com --

The Fuzz Munchkin is a limited edition clone of J Mascis’ fuzz pedal. Reverse engineered from J’s original pedal and built at Tym guitars, these are exact clones using the exact component values and transistors as is in J’s original. Sounding somewhere between a Ramhead and a version 3 with more “clarity” this will get you closer than any other pedal on the market to the live Dinosaur Jr. sound.

The Tym Fuzz Munchkin also has the added advantage of a “bypass” switch which will give you J’s rhythm and lead sound in one pedal. It comes in a new Tym stainless steel enclosure with custom artwork designed by J Mascis and Tym guitars. Limited to 300 units worldwide and available ONLY through Tym guitars.


the story on how this pedal was produced from TYM guitars:

Well, are you more into si or ge?

Mjm London (I or II), Fulltone 69 and 70 (in the newer small enclosure) are good contenders in small packages. There's also the Skin Pimp Face Plant and the Basic Audio Solar Myth.

I'd suggest the sunface though (w/ sun dial and on off pot).

I think sa fuzz face type, mas maganda talaga strat with single compared to say, a lp with humbuckers.

For tone bender.. Check out burgerman's scarab deluxe video sa youtube. May two takes, one witha strat and one with lp. Medyo malaki din difference in sound. :)

devi ever :" I also never threatened to sue him, "start a war", or threaten him with physical harm. I just had an opinion on the way I felt he was disrespecting me, and the fact I didn't like the things he was involved with, or his apparent moral stance on various aspects of... life in general. If that makes me a bad person in people's eyes... fine... but I know I'm not wrong in having the opinions I had, or stating the facts I stated. On the other hand... the transphobic attacks, and now the physical threats and legal threats... that's some pretty [strawberry] up [gooey brown stuff]... and if anyone doesn't agree with that... then those are definitely people I don't want to be associated with."

at some point devi gives a partial explanation:

"Here's my three-strikes-he's out for Billy and the pedals.

1) I gave him a Shoe Gazer and Rocket a long time ago, and when I met him in person and mentioned the Shoe Gazer, he said something along the lines of "It's a great fuzz, but you can't use that live... you know?" ... No, I don't know Billy. Tell me why you're too afraid to do anything interesting with your live sound anymore. Oh right, everything has to be pristine and perfect these days or vintage and unprogressive... just like you.

2) The Rocket diss in the "Stompland" video. The Rocket was not designed to emulate the sound from Rocket. The pedal is a nod to the song, and a love letter of sorts to Siamese Dream... but anyone who's actually spent good time with it knows that it goes WAY beyond that... so his obvious misunderstanding (through undoubted little use) of the pedal was kind of annoying. What made it pretty [strawberry] infuriating though was that I was in the middle of developing the pedal which I -thought- I was working with him on (the Silver Rose) to make a fuzz that would fit his "modern yet vintage" fuzz needs.... and to have him publicly (metaphorically and literally) toss the Rocket aside was a real [gooey brown stuff] move in relation... to well EVERYTHING going on that point. Fortunately no one gives much a [gooey brown stuff] about Billy anymore in regards to such things, so any business lost because of his off hand comment isn't business I'm worried about. It was just a [sausage] move. I like what a good friend of mine in the industry said "When it comes to fuzz, you're bigger than Billy Corgan... [strawberry] him."

It's true... I'm selling Silver Roses like crazy... not because of anything Billy did... but because people like what I do, and could give two [gooey brown stuff] at the end of the day who uses my pedals... but still... I don't do well with idiots and assholes, and Billy fits the bill (lol) of both these days.

3) The Silver Rose. I spent well over three grand developing the Rose for that ungrateful [pineapple]. I listened to what he wanted, developed something that was far beyond what my business usually does, went through a costly research and development process, and ultimately sent him around $1k worth of gear on top of all the R&D costs during the SR time... and what came of his use, or thanks, or anything for that time spent?

Nothing. The guy didn't say [gooey brown stuff] in response to all that hard work. As a matter of fact, just for [gooey brown stuff], I decided to toss the name of a fellow pedal builder his way who was building a pedal he might like, just as a last... we'll see what happens. So what happens? The [strawberry] writes back the next day saying he'd love one of those!

lol

The guy has the attention span of a carrot.

Seriously though. I'm unapologetic in any of this, and glad to finally just cut ties with the guy. He is definitely the epitome of the fallen hero story that seems to eventually play out to anyone and at least some of their heroes over time.

So yeah... this is the pedal side of things... but beyond that, once again... there is so much about Billy Corgan beyond the music and gear that I just don't vibe with... actually ALL OF IT.... and the music isn't there anymore... so [strawberry] him."

are you referring to that whole drama about someone critiquing the build quality of her pedals?

IMO, the guy had a point naman and pics to go with the critique. and the thing is, a few weeks after the whole issue, she changed the circuit board of the pedal to a much tidier config. so it was all for the best (for future purchase.).

Good day mga sirs,

I just have a quick question re the germanium fuzz face. They said that if its Germanium, it shouldnt be included on a chain with the non germanium peds, and that it should have its own power supply.

My question is can I use a separate ordinary 9v adapter to power a germanium ped?

The reason I asked is im getting a germanium fuzzface here, but im not sure if i can use an ordinary 9v adapter to power it,

Salamat in advance mga sirs! Ingat po.

What model are you getting? Iirc, some ge pedals are center positive. So I wouldn't suggest plugging them in unless you have the red converter cable. You might fry your pedal.

Post by: Musikerochan on December 01, 2011, 08:45:38 AM
IMO converting one of the plugs of a regular center negative DC 9V daisy chain to make one plug center positive is a no-no pa rin. it should have a separate adaptor/battery :-)

better to power your germanium pedal with a battery. i think read in some of the forums that daisy chaining it overloads or stresses the GE transistor particularly.

i noticed nga that when when my Fuzz Factory is daisy chained it is noisy as hell. zvex even confirms this.

using a cheap 9v everready battery solves this. the battery lasts long because the current draw is low and as the battery dies out, it sounds better.

Salamat mga Sirs! I'm using the Dunlop JDF2 Fuzz Face (Red). Im planning on using a battery clip adapter so i can plug it to a separate 9v PSU.
Would that work?
Can I use an ordinary 9v adapter as long as I will just use it for the FF?

Thank you for your seggestions. :)

i used to daisy chain my fuzz factory on a 1spot. noisy as hell. batteries are better.

like teleclem said, they last really long even if araw arawin mo pa. basta lang remember to remove the cables after playing.

Well, I can see how a fuzz factory could seem "defective" at some (many, actually) weird settings. In that case, then I guess buying new through our shippers here would be your best bet if you want to get one new. :) sayang lang yung cash savings if you get one used.

Hey Fuzz Experts! Medyo newbie sa fuzz. Ask ko lang kung ano pwedeng Fuzz pedal na maganda paren tunog sa solid state amp. usually ang alam ko lalabas lang ganda ng tunog ng fuzz pedal pag naka tube amp. Pati sa mga demo sa youtube, madalas tube amp ang gamit pang demo.

I'm aiming for a violin-like kind of tone ala Eric Johnson sana. tama bang pedal set up ang:

 Guitar->OD pedal->Fuzz pedal

                    or

 Guitar->Fuzz pedal ->OD pedal?

I tried the EHX Little Big Muff pero parang hindi na kaya makuha yung sound na yun pero oks din naman siya sa solid state. I also had the Sib! Nick Nitro na may Fuzz Face at Octave effect 1 one kaso nabenta ko ren ng presyong adik nun nangailangan ng money.

kasi pag-gig usually di naman tube amp ang available sa venue/bar eh diba?

Hey Fuzz Experts! Medyo newbie sa fuzz. Ask ko lang kung ano pwedeng Fuzz pedal na maganda paren tunog sa solid state amp. usually ang alam ko lalabas lang ganda ng tunog ng fuzz pedal pag naka tube amp. Pati sa mga demo sa youtube, madalas tube amp ang gamit pang demo.

I'm aiming for a violin-like kind of tone ala Eric Johnson sana. tama bang pedal set up ang:

 Guitar->OD pedal->Fuzz pedal

                    or

 Guitar->Fuzz pedal ->OD pedal?

I tried the EHX Little Big Muff pero parang hindi na kaya makuha yung sound na yun pero oks din naman siya sa solid state. I also had the Sib! Nick Nitro na may Fuzz Face at Octave effect 1 one kaso nabenta ko ren ng presyong adik nun nangailangan ng money.

kasi pag-gig usually di naman tube amp ang available sa venue/bar eh diba?

TIA fuzz freaks!

Sa mga nasubukan ko, Skreddy fuzzes. :)

never happened to me. EVER.

Guitar->OD pedal->Fuzz pedal = this will achieve more sustain. Big Muff Pi at Fulltone Soulbender, kahit standalone mga yan, you should achieve a violin-like tone.

Thanks po sa mga input mga sir! how about what type of fuzz to achieve the violin-like tone? muff vs. fuzzface vs. tonebender type? definitely octave types can't (tried yung sa nick nitro, not my cup of tea).

Well, sa solid state amp, siguro ok yung tweakable na muff type. Traditional fuzz face types work better with cooking tube amps.

Not to be controversial but, i tried the sun face nkt yesterday with a blues jr. And a strat and was moderately bored. I don't know if it's because i started out using fuzz with a big muff and a fuzz factory. I think what made it more unimpressive was the inflated price.

Just my opinion. YVMV.  :-o

Yup me time na ganun.
Fuzz pedal tsaka single coils di ko trip lately pati fuzzface style pedals.

Really digging buckers with the zero, tonebender and the blender.

Post by: Musikerochan on September 21, 2012, 11:21:55 AM
^are the NKTs high gain or med gain? ang alam ko kasi sa FFs usually importante low gain yung transistors na gagamitin para litaw yung pagiging dynamic ng fuzz effect (swipe lightly and it's clean-ish, dig and it growls). general notion is that FFs are meant to be played using your volume knob or variation in input gain.

For me, i like fuzz and single coils naman, especially low output or vintage pickups. I think it brings out the character of the fuzz as opposed to making it sound like an over drive or a distortion.

That being said, ok din yung muffy fuzzes on buckers.

Pero, i don't know. Maybe i was expecting something more from the sunface with all the hype. It's not bad naman just a little too vanilla for my taste.

Mas sulit fuzz factory or even a fuzz face. Naka try na rin ako ng germanium na fuz face, mas okmpa nga e kasi dunlop has streamlined the product already.

Again, just my opinion. Not bashing the sunface. It just is too much money for too little fuzz.

Not only ok, but definitely ok ang muff type fuzzes sa buckers. Ang nipis kasi kapag single coils (my observation with the gear that I have), you can't get that much wall of a sound.

I find it too sharp on some amps e, so i set it on a drive channel pag solid state or run it through a very low overdrive. But that's just my own preference. I like it dark kasi.

Big muff is great on it's own. But you can push it with a drive pedal before it para umangat sa mix.  :wink:

I paired your fuzz factory with a TS9 when I had it. It didn't like it in front and even after. Sayang di ko sya na-try with single coils.

The russian pi however, sounded good with a little drive in front. Anlaki nga lang nya talaga hehe.

Better to run it throughna marshall sounding pedal na low gain. Like a bb or something. I run it through a shredhead. Perfect!

The ts is too much of a mid hump. Kills the darkness of a nice fuzz.

I think high gain yung na try ko, man. Pangit yung clean up when you roll off. Mas ok pa yung sa fuzz factory e.

Pero yeah, i can see na it can potentially be a good low gain fuzz. Pero the price is B.S.
Title: Re: Fuzz Freaks arise!
Post by: johnny_jackhammers on September 28, 2012, 11:49:04 AM
Btw, i was able to try an old teaser stallion fuzz yesterday. Two of them, actually.

One was the small zvex type box, and the other one was the bigger brother with an extra knob that was for "chunk". I think it was extra gain or something.

It was kind of a one trick pony for me. The switch which engages the Frequency knob is next to useless. I say this because the noise it creates is quite contrived. If you want better out of this world noises, there's always devi stuff of even the fuzzfactory.

They should've just made one switch to engage the "chunk" knob instead of that frequency knob. Would've made it more usefull.

That being said, the drive sound was quite addicting. Something about it sounded more organic than some of the other more face-melting treble fuzzes out there. It can get quite thick. Not muffy thick but interestingly thick in it's own right. Leaning more on distortion/fuzz.

Maybe not worth the boutique price altogether, but sounds quite good too for thick chords. I got to give it props for that.

Although...i was using a tech 21 amp, so it was a modeling amp, but set to very basic flat settings.  :wink:

This pedal has been taunting me for more than a year now. I haven't had any single fuzz pedal in my life but experience taught me to always go for the sound i like without compromise, lest I would fall on a vicous habit of trial and error. My research has led me to this sweet sounding fuzz pedal. The reason why I like it so much is because most of the fuzz pedals I have heard has some sort of "distortion-like" sound to it which kinda takes away the vintage feel I'm looking for. This pedal has a sweet unique tone to it which specially sings when finger picking. It also beautifully cleans up when the guitar's volume is turned down. The only things that are making me think twice is the price and the technical details on the website that reads "It won’t sound good through a small transistor amp and a cheap guitar". I'm not sure if my guitars are expensive enough to unleash it's full potential lol :)

Anyway, here's a picture of the pedal and a video of Scott McKeon demoing his signature pedal.

I might get a Twosome if budget allows this year. I recently traded my Blunderbuss for a Caroline Wave Cannon and for some reason, I developed HUGE Rat GAS. Managed to track down an LM308 Rat 2 and I'm a happy camper. Bumped the Wave Cannon off the board.

Does anyone use fuzz pedals for metal around here? I've found that if used with other pedals before them, they sound amazing and can feed back on command but still be fairly controllable. My go-to metal sound used to be an 808 running in front of a Blunderbuss but now I run my Rat into a Caroline Olympia. Really awesome metal sound, IMO.

Take a deep breath.
This SM fuzz is very polished and pretty slick and when I say slick meaning its marketed pretty well.

I too am guilty into buying this hype. I bought a Lovepedal limited edition Chromed out MK II tonebender replica.
The pedal sounded wicked but then again its not 100 percent wicked over any production Monsterpiece or Fulltone Soulbenders out there.

Fuzz boxes dont need to be that expensive.
They always sell you the vintage trannies hype or limited production BS to pump up market value.
There are tons of pretty good fuzz pedals out there that dont cost that much.

Have fun looking for diamonds in the rough.

Completely agree! Hence, the second thoughts on buying this baby...but until i find something that gives exactly the same tone and nuances, this remains to be on top of my GAS wish list  :-D


One special consideration on germanium fuzz is that it is temperature sensitive. This is the only germanium fuzz pedal I have seen so far that claims to be temperature resistant.
However, being a noob with fuzz, I'm not quite sure up to what extent this has been an issue here in Asia - specially that climates here can tend to be really hot!  :cry:

IMHO, there are so many fuzz variants that its very hard to give a roadmap.  You just have to know what "flavor" you want.

but generally, there are two ways you can go in your fuzz journey:
1. get a fuzz pedal with exotic features and all the bells and whistles (octave up, octave down, gate, compression, tone, etc...), or
2. get a simple touch sensitive fuzz wherein you can manipulate your sound though playing dynamics and volume roll-off.

personally, i'd go with #2.  what I actually consider my main fuzz is the princess rage (sean's predecessor to the chickusa). because it is touch and input sensitive, you can get many tones just but adjusting volume and playing dynamics, or perhaps boosting with an OD.

mind you, i have a fuzz that has all the bells and whistles to shape the sound via many external and internal knobs (swollen pickle mk2), and i also have a danelectro french toast (octave up) and mxt blue box clone (octave down).  but i always go back to the inexpensive pincess rage because of its simple operation and touch sensitive quality.

so i'd say its up to you, and what qualities you a looking for in a fuzz.

have you ever seen the guts of a regular sized fuzz face? it's a small circuit board with a whole lot of air inside. i'm actually surprised ngayon lang nila naisip na gawin ang fuzz face design in a smaller casing. now, it really is a lot more pedalboard friendly.

Thanks ser. I like the responsiveness, and the easy dials on this thing, cant get a bad sound out of it, used it to drive the amp, and it was really good, glad i made the right decision.

yup I think this is that one, got it from bh  :)  yeah sadly you can only one at a time I think it can be modded so you can engage both, but it also make sense sometimes hehe, kasi so much gain narin because both of them also has a boost function hehe, loving it so far  :)

leviathan have a lot of gain, sometimes too much, not your typical fuzzface, fulltone69,death by audio, muff, etc. parang heavy distortion na sya instead than a fuzz.

15 different germanium transistors to try... "balak" ko din gumawa by order in the future...
my finished projects (not yet housed, but working) FUZZ FACTORY, MASTOTRON, AENIMA, TORN SPEAKER, US and yes I will be housing it in one Big Box with 12 knobs, 6 footswitches and 4 toggle switches.... Yes it is FUZZ OVERLOAD! too much is never enough for GAS!....  (will post it here..  soon)

Mukhang di handle yung pasikotsikot ng fuzz pedal pag micro cube ang gamit.

i just got bitten my the fuzz bug!

when i got my first fuzz (barber trifecta from randymarsh) a couple of months back, nanibago ako. sanay kasi ako sa overdrive.
i play only strats and i use the neck pickup almost exclusively.
and then, i tried the fuzz with the bridge pickup and i fell in love with the sound.
on the trifecta, i keep the volume and fuzz knobs at noon, the toggle on position 2 (center - i believe this is the jumbo bender mode), tone at 10:00 (pushed in), sludge at 2:00. the tone and sludge setting can get muddy when using the neck pickup and i find it perfect for the bridge.

Kumpleto naman sila..  either Deeco(cubao) or Alexan(mega)
syempre mas kumpleto sa Raon.
If your  new to DIY.. better Silicon Fuzzface muna, if makakuha
ka germanium Transistors much better...  napaka simple kasi ng Fuzzface
you can tweak the values.. for your ears desire.
Kahit walang PCB kayang gawin..  point to point lang.
Less than Php 100 may fuzzface kana (no enclosure)  8-)

Share ko lang mga Fuzzy friends...  :-P

regarding a Vintage Fuzz clone or Orig .. with a WAH or modulation before or after your chain of effects ... hindi gagana ang wah mo.. with a Fuzz..  magiging volume pedal lang siya...
details of this..  ask the "Gurus". parang buffer or impedance issue...
..  some says you need a buffer or a booster.. 

In my experience..  you just need to "True Bypass" your wah to work with
a Fuzz. I think pag nabypass yung "buffer" circuit nung wah.. Ok na siya...

Para sa mga nag hahanap ng Fuzz factory Clone..  i have succesfully cloned
it using Mullard OC44 transistor.. problem is wala na akong stock.   :|

Yeah, marami ako own presets niyan kaya lang na misplace ko somewhere, kung gusto mo ng presets, search ka lang sa google. Lagi mo lang ilalagay sa unahan ng chain yan, kasi dun lang talaga siya maganda, and also sabi din ng zvex workers. Enjoy your new toy  ^-^

Enjoy na enjoy sir! hehe gamit ko nga lang kanina eh. hehe it sounds good indeed kahit solo lang sya. Sarap!  :-)

try mo siya with a 9v battery like eveready .yung hindi alkaline.  sabi ni z. vex himself na better daw ang fuzz factory pag naka battery. medyo na-o-overload daw mga germanium transistors niya pag power supply.

Ano pa ba transistor na pwede gamitin? Galing ako Deeco ang meron sila C8050 NPN at S9011 NPN.

Sir pwede naman po kahit anong transistor for the fuzz face..
PNP fuzzface circuit almost parehas lang ng NPN fuzzface circuit..
same values baliktad lang po ang polarity ng mga parts...
if gagamit kayo ng "Silicon" transistor... kailangan pong "i-tweak" yung value ng parts.
stock values for the parts are meant to fit a "Germanium" transistor pair.
hope this helps...   :eek:

Sa fuzz you need hfe nung transistor,tsaka biasing its not a simple project.Mag OD na lang kau made up of op-amp for beginner.

+1...

experience-wise.. mostly builders says "critical" daw ang HFE..  for me..  HINDI eh..
I think you can use any Germanium with Very High HFE and Very Low HFE. you could
still get a "ballpark" tone of a good FUzz. ang mahalaga is how the transistor react to the
circuit. very subjective..  kaya experimentation is a requirement..  yun pa isa BIASING..
well biasing is only needed if your not using the "IDEAL" HFE.
madaming hindi sinasabi sa pag buo ng FUZZFACE kasi sobrang dali niya.
Primitive nga daw ang design, actually its a simpleng project to build kaya lang..
ang daming hassle... and it reacts to the amp youre using.. Different amp, different tone.
Im using a Fender Clone(tube), Mesa boogie .22(tube)  and a Squire Bass amp 40.
My favorite is the bass amp.  :idea:

etong nasa vid kasi buong buo eh.
SKIP nyo nalang sa 2:40

GOODNESS GRACIOUS...I DIDNT KNOW FUZZ COULD BE LOADS OF TONE FUN!

WELCOME ME TO THE FUZZ FREAK CLUB GUYS..

This is a Fuzz Factory CLone I just got from a guy here..who says this was built by the better sophisticated pedal cloners here..hahaha..

First Plug and Im ADDICTED...

First time I got expose to fzz was with a Biyang Fuzz Star..when I was starting out my pedal addiction..I didnt like it ang ingay, and parang mahilig lang ako sa chug chug toanz noon.. and didnt buy the freaking pedal kahit it was dirt cheap....and cursed FUZZ forever..

Pucha..nung marinig ko BLACK KEYS...ayon na!!! WOW..ganda pala ng tunog..pag ginamit ng maayos..buti nalang may fuzz effect simulation sa Zoom G3..pangtawid GUTOM...

may nakipagtrade sakin before ng clone din na Fuzz factory..na saktong kuha yung graphics sa pedal facee..for my Gvnor2 sa classifieds..di ko naasikaso kasi paalis na yata ako noon..pero I was interested..hahaha sino ba yung forumer na yun..

now may actual fuzz pedal na ako...SARAP!!!!! Tsaka I like na palaban siya..kailangan mo siyang i-tame...parang hard to get na babae...sarap! WOHOOO!!!

What the Fuzz? 7:00 7:00 5:00 5:00

Volume is set for unity gain which differs slightly
with different Fuzz Factories so we leave volume off the setting list.

If you use the basic Probe setting I mention above with Stab at 5:00 and Drive and Comp at 12:00 you can change the feedback sound while moving your foot. Zack shows this Fuzz Probe setting in the Movie clip at his site.

Gate: 5:00
Comp: 10:00
Drive: 11:00
Stab: 5:00

sige di ako mag twaek masyado..may nakuha na akong setting eh..

anyone here G.A.S.ing for the Walrus Audio Janus trem/fuzz?

looks awesome, and sounds like a gated muff from the videos.

the color scheme reminds me of those chinese ceramics. i might just get one cause it looks so damn cool. plus it's a fuzz AND a tremolo, that you can use separately.

some sellers will have it locally available yata soon.

I used the Roland Beebaa for the 1st time kagabi on a live setting. Unfortunately, nung turn na namin tumugtog, pinahinaan nung landowner yung mga amp!wahaha. Diko madinig sarili ko, and was too busy minding my singing.So the next best thing to do eh ipagamit ko sa iba yung pedal. Ayun. Even at a low volume, it cuts through. I loved it's low growl, it does not sound too bassy. The other fuzz type is too fizzy, matinis. Kailangan na nating paayos yung tone knob nickyboy hihi. Hindi pako sure if someone took a video, hopefully meron. Daming mga fuzz people na tumugtog kagabi, Switch and Cat Valium to name a few. All of them approved of the pedal.

American components na dinala sa Taiwan para gawin ng mga Taiwanese? Taiwanese components na ginagawa ng Amerikano sa Taiwan? Elaborate pls.

Which brings me to a question. (for all you guys) Do NOS components really matter?

There's one for sale here. The nose pedal toggles between two frequency presets. Nagtitimpi pa lang ako hihi.

i am not a believer of fretboard's wood tone, whether it is maple,rosewood, or ebony, i believe it is in the setup. I'll give a suggestion to adjustment like pickups, string height etc etc. one is logic when it comes to fretboard like fender products, kaya nga may choices ka if you want a maple or rosewood fretboard. Kung may difference ang tone when it comes to fretboard, edi sana iba ang presyo ng maple sa rosewood

some points:

1) contrary to popular belief, a pedal's overall output (the measure of loudness) can also be known when the volume pot is MAXED. setting the level pot on 12 and comparing to other dirt pedals with volume pots also set at 12 is not a proper measurement of its output. the sweep (log,linear) can also deceive testers. 2 similar pedals fitted with different pots - one with a linear pot, the other logarithmic - will show that when both set at 10:00, the one with a linear pot will appear to be louder.

2) in relation to #1, fuzz faces have generally low output, and the value of the volume pot is a big factor. usually 500K ginagamit diyan. due to its relatively low output, users tend to set the volume at 2:00-3:00 to get a little above unity gain. i once tried a 1M pot sa Rat build dati and damn, tindi ng treble roll-off, so i reverted to the 100K value specified. my guess is that this is due to the effective resistance in series to the output signal because of the higher value pot used in the FF, hence treble only opens up when the pot wiper (middle lug) is near the clockwise end (max setting).

this can also be demonstrated by fitting different value pots sa volume control ng gitara: try 3 linear pots with different values - 100K, 500K, 1Meg - and then compare which pot killed more treble when the knob is set at the middle range (5-6 kunyari).

tsaka na yung impedance issues. kulang pa ang aking chenes dun.

Muff types - Skreddy Fuzz pedals and variations - pwedeng tame fuzz ala OD to all out classic/modern muff tones ala Gilmour. I tried it, delicious.

I have yet to try a black EHX Sovtek Big Muff on a strat pero madami ako nababasa na maganda daw, but you have to mod the original circuit to make it sound like the green Russian one.

Bili na ng fuzz bro, nakaka adik!  :)

love the "tone" though when the fuzz is full tapos roll back ng konti yun volume sa guitar. hehe.
hanap hanap ulit ako or abang abang sa classified for a good deal on something...  :-P

i'm in love with fuzz now, gives that hendrix, gilmore, johnson and classic hard rock tone... just need to find a fuzz that can give em all kun meron man.. or cheap.  :idea:

if sa JB ka nag try, try the red on a tube amp na laney. yung cub 10 will give you a good idea.

also, you can try it on an 8 inch speaker, iba rin dating. vintage yung pagka ripped speaker.

man, in regards to a fuzz that has everything, medyo malabo yun. 

parang apples and oranges ang fuzz. you have a the muff for thickness (i mean REALLY thick), you have the fuzzface types for fuzz that cleans up well and is classic rock ripped speaker sound (a muff circuit will not do this), and then meron naman yung buzz master types.

devi ever has a lot of this variation and the muff types too.

besides, the fun is collecting the variations of this fuzz trinity, so a fuzz to end all fuzzes is no fun. IMHO.  ^-^

i was not fortunate enough to try any "muff" fuzz yesterday since they were out of stocks, except for the metal muff which is not my taste... just need to ask, does a muff based circuitry sounds good too when the guitar volume is rolled back? this was what attracted me most to the fuzzface....  :-P

another question, which is better (tone and value wise), branded (ehx, mxr, catelina etc) or yun mga pinoy made diy fuzz pedals? (napaka simple kasi ng circuitry ng fuzz e ) seems hard for me to spend north of 5k for a fuzzy pedal.  :wink:

i know that collecting thingy.. so full of regret when i look at my pedals and all of them are full of dist and od.. wish i could swap the dist for fuzzies....  :lol:

No. it's not that kind of fuzz. that's what the FF does best.

nasayo naman yun e. the general rule is, if it sounds good to your ears, ikaw lang makaka-determine if it's worth the price. if namamahalan ka, then it's not worth it.

btw, second hand big muffs in the classifieds usually runs just 3.5k

also, the metal muff is not a fuzz. it's a distortion. they just have a license to call it a muff as the muff is ehx's claim to fame.

First time I tried a Fuzz was when I had my guitar combo installed in my laptop. Ang ingay hindi ko mamix ng maayos. Tapos narinig ko ginamit ni John Mayer sa crossroads. Dun ko lang naappreciate yung tunog na yun kapag inayos talaga. Masarap kapag ang Fuzz level is around 6-7, tapos yung tone level niya mababa na nasa 2-3.

mas masarap lalo pag naririnig mo from the amp mismo. yng feeling na parang punit na speaker.. grr!  :razz: lol

Me mga times na nakakatuwa yung "punit speaker" sputter sound, minsan nakakairita. Ahahaha.

Buti na lang controlled ng compression knob sa fuzz factory yung sputter.  :)

I tried the jamming along with Andy's demo of the fuzz factory sa PGS, lahat ng setting ginaya ko.. Very consistent with the sounds made on video demo IMHO. So, what you hear on you tube is what you get. All oscillations and sputter and stuff.

Fav fuzz ko ngayon 'to.  :-D

OK talaga yung fuzz factory..
it was one of the first fuzz na naclone ko.. medyo mahirap lang.. humanap ng
substitute  germanium transistors.. pero ngayun ok na..
daming kong stock..  :money:

next clone ko was the Wolly Mammoth/Mastotron..
I play bass for a band now..  kaya magagamit ko..
almost same lang ng Fuzz factory pero mas ok siya sa bass...  imho.  >:D

Try to check out..  Devi Ever's  Torn's Speaker and Ænima!
i made clones of this in one circuit...

mismo! kahit sakin ganun na ganun eh. controllable yung compression nya. sa ngayon, laging nakamax yung stab at walang gate yung settings ko. yung comp at drive lang binabago ko. hehe

Ang ingay ng single coils kapag walang gate dialed in.  :-P

Sineset ko lang ng 9 o'clock hanggang 12 o'clock lang yun gate. Tas merong 9 o'clock na compression. Same... maxed yung stability. Riot kapag wala eh haha.

ahh kaya. ako naman nakahumbucker kaya keri lang. lol
pucha yun masaya sa FF eh, pag sawa ka na sa mga maayos na tunog minsan, pwede ka gumawa ng maiingay na tones eh!

I never tried an actual fuzz pedal. I tried only those in multi-fx and listen to some videos on youtube. I came to conclude that fuzz seems to be okay when doing double stops, single notes, lead things, etc. Pero pang gawin mo siya pang rhythm especially doing barre or power chords, parang it sounds "muddy". I don't know.  :eek:

like other effects pedal, nasa timplahan din :) pwedeng mild to wild yang fuzz eh.
at syempre sa type ng gitara at amp mo.

Sir.. mga simple palang yung ginagawa ko sa ngayun..
yung mahihirap pang personal use ko muna..
medyo same lang ata sya ng fuzzface.. minsan 3 transistor, minsan 2
depende sa brand... balitaan kita dito.. will try to clone a 3 transistor tone bender.

tama ka sir minsan hirap pang chords ng fuzz.. pang single note bagay..
"PERO" ... ... try to listen to listen to black sabbath's sweet leaf.. AFAIK .. fuzz yun sir..
mas ok gamitin fuzz if you're covering black sabbath.. or mga stoner rock songs..
syempre depende din sa fuzz na gagamitin mo.. at amp..  namimili ng amp ang fuzz..

In general.. yes madami pang available na germanium at silicon
na luma dito sa Pilipinas pero dina kumpleto.. you need to research
for replacements na meron dito....  finders keepers lang.. sa deeco wala ng germanium.. 

I have acquired a good amount of NOS germanium transistors
good for Fuzz face, Fuzzrite(Si), Tone bender, Fuzz factory....
medyo mahabang oras at medyo malaking pera na ginugol ko... (maliit pa para sa iba  :oops:)
minsan talo..  dahil sa luma na siya "Leaky" na..  so sa batch of 10 or 20
swerte ka if may ok na 2 pares..  so if makabili ka ng 2 pcs. it doesn't mean
tapos kana.. kailangan mo subukan sa project mo if ok tunog.. if not
"Leaky" yung nabili mo... kaya mapapansin mo..  mahal sa ebay ng germanium transistor
kasi nga... in a batch of 100..  malamang ang matched pair dun... swerte 5 pairs..
kaya din mahal boutique pedal na may NOS germanium transistor..
even NOS silicon transistor are hard to find na.. swertihan if the new replacement will
sound ok sa project mo... its really exciting finding them..  sourcing out what store has it...
and buying them all... hahaha  >:D

So rubis915, will it really matter kung NOS or brand new run yung transistor? Kung pareho naman values nila..

Plus... sa NOS lang naman nagkakaron ng "leaks" diba? Kasi kung (example lang) 5 pairs out of a hundred ang good trannies, sa panahon ngayon.. that means meron na manufacturing defect, sa laki ng percentage ng defective sa isang run.

Going back.. kung maggawa ka man ng fuzzrite or buzzsaw or fuzz face clone for selling, consider me first on your list ha?  :-D i want that #001

Salamat for reading.. "take note" i'm not really good at this.. i'm talking from my experience and what i know and some what i read..  :eek:

1. regarding nos at new "silicon" transistors sa tingin ko lang wala masyado pag kakaiba sa tunog
problem is yung ibang ginamit sa lumang mga pedal dati wala na or discontinued so..
hahanap ka ang substitute.. yun... meron nag pagkakaiba sa gain or frequency response sa
ginawa mong circuit.. in most fuzz circuit..  some favors the silicon kasi mas stable lalo sa
temperature.. iba tunog ng germanium pedal sa openfield concert.. vs sa music museum.. hahah

Ive read Keeley has reproduction of the old Fuzzrite...
and they are Limited edition 40 units only why.. kasi daw.. 
nakakuha sila ng NOS silicon transistor.. same as the original..
this will atest na .. they favor the NOS... here it is.. at $269

2. regarding nos at new "germanium
