More OSH Park PCBs

These are some more PCBs from OSH Park. There is an IC Big Muff, Tube Steak, and a Woolly Mammoth.

The Tube Steak I created from a schematic posted by Charlie Barth at┬áTube Steak Fuzz is a cross between the Tube Sound Fuzz, and Way Huge Fat Sandwich. Here’s a link to Charlie’s article read it for yourself: Tube Steak Fuzz.

The IC Big Muff also called the op-amp Big Muff was a version of the Big Muff that used two op-amps in place of the four transistors used in the classic Big Muff Design. Here is a link to more information in the op-amp Big Muff.

The Woolly Mammoth is a PCB design that I made as a clone of the ZVex Woolly Mammoth. I really like the sound of this one. Designed as a fuzz for bass, it sounds good with guitar also. The design is based on the Fuzz Face.


Royal Jelly Buzz

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.
