This is a guide to building a Fuzz Face. It’s a step by step set of instructions. The build uses perfboard and mounts the pots on the board which makes a for a clean build with little board wiring. This is a great sounding project the parts are pretty easy to get.
Big thanks to my pal Joe who proof read and edited. He writes a really good blog you should check it out: http://tonefiend.com
Really just a Woolly Mammoth clone. I used some rubber stamps and Stazon ink to decorate the box. It’s sporting an obnoxiously bright green LED. The LED is probably the only thing I don’t like about this box.
This is a mastodon fuzz pcb from music pcb. It’s a small pcb that mounts on the stomp switch. While the idea good and the layout of the pcb is good, it just doesn’t live up to its promise.
Let me explain, for me the promise is simple easy wiring and compact space. While the board is compact its dimensions make it very difficult to build it in a 1590B with a battery. Without a battery things are easier. I managed to make it work by pushing the pots up as far as they could go, which places the knobs awkwardly close together.
This was the first I tried using ribbon cable for wiring. I like it and will use this again.
