Another Fuzz Factory clone. I used silicon transistors for this build I didn’t have any germanium transistors with the right gains. I think lower gain silicon works best here. I used a couple 2N5401 with gains of 115 and 120. These were about the lowest gain I could find in my parts bin.
I ordered three boards from OSH Park for $7.75. These worked well.
I used the soft switching with the Madbean Softie. Which worked well. I’ve built four of these so far and they have all worked well.
