Welcome to the Revolution

Hi there, welcome to my blog - La Revolution Deux. It's an odd name - but I like it! Here you will find all the info on my various DIY Guitar effects builds, amplifiers and guitars. Everything from a humble Ibanez tubescreamer to the holiest KLON Overdrive.

You may also find a few effects builds that I am looking to move on - usually in exchange for other effects/gear/cash. You can always check my ebay account to see what I've got up for grabs.

Have fun, enjoy the blog - Fred Briggs :-)


Feel free to get in contact with me about anything you see on this blog or with any general questions about guitars, amplifiers and effects, I'll be happy to answer! Just click the button above to email me directly or alternately my email address is fredbriggs2007 [at] googlemail [dot] com

Fred Briggs - Fuzz

Here is an interesting take on the classic fuzz face design. Note fun "Sag" control and the piggy backed transistors which allow you to tailor the gain of the first transistor just to taste :-) This thing can go from light overdrive to full of spatter fuzz depending on your guitar volume and the sag control setting. Build it up - you won't be disappointed!

Here are a few pictures of my completed build:
