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 :-)

Zvex - Fuzz Factory

[Lots of pretty custom shop Fuzz Factories]

For mere completeness - and to stop me getting so many emails ;-) Here is the schematic a vero board layout for the ever famous Zvex Fuzz Factory, crazy fuzz sounds galore. And, a few actually useful ones too (If you tweak for long enough - don't forget to write them down!)! Check out the demos on the zvex website: http://zvex.com/fuzz.html

Here's a demo video of the Fuzz Factory in action:



For the schematic (Very easy to read and generate your own layout for) see here: http://solgrind.wordpress.com/2008/02/04/zvex-fuzz-factory/

I know he's denied permission to repost but the link isn't always active - here it is to make sure it doesn't disappear (Sorry Martin, I'll get round to redrawing it myself soon!);

  3. Do the AC-128s need to be matched? (Apologies, if thats a DUH question, Im not aware what 'matched transistors' means)

  4. Hi--

    I'm an amateur electronic hobbyist and was wondering where a 3PDT switch and power indicator LED would be soldered to in correspondence to your veroboard layout.

    I would greatly appreciate any feedback.

  6. Hi, Im loooking forward to trying this! Im fairly new to the whole deal - which way round should the 2 AC128 transisters go (which is the C, B and E)? thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  7. It depends on the make of transistor you get firstly, there is usually some marking for the emitter, a red dot or tag.

  32. Hi. I'm building one of these using the vero layout, but I cannot understand how to wire the pots. In vero layouts usually the pots are drawn as seen from the bottom, but if that's true in this layout, than the pedal will have the pots going from Stab (left) to Volume (right), which is the opposite of the orignal pedal. Also the wiring seems different from other projects out there in the web (e.g. Tonepad). What am I missing here? Thanks, c.
