Silicon Fuzz Box

Been a while since my last post!

This is another Fuzz Box I recently built up.

I wanted to go for a vintage look with this build; an homage to the old 60’s Fuzz Faces.

Its a classic Fuzz Face, with hand selected BC108 Transistors, and some other small tweaks and modifications.

I also used ‘Mojo’ parts (Vishay and Cornell Dubilier caps etc.). I’m not so certain that the use of ‘mojo’ parts enhances tone, but they certainly look cool!

As with most Fuzz Face circuits, this thing sounds best placed first in the signal chain.

Gravy Boat Fuzz

Exciting times here at SJ Effects; I have a new SJ Effects pedal to introduce to you all… The Gravy Boat Fuzz!

Gravy Boat Fuzz

This is one of my Standard line pedals, and can be ordered from the ‘pedals for sale‘ section on the site.

Its a heavy Silicon Fuzz based on the classic Coloround Fuzz Box (commonly referred to as the ‘One Knob Fuzz’).

The pedal features Volume and Fuzz controls, and also features a ‘Weight’ toggle switch which allows you to alter the lowend response of the pedal (of which there is plenty; this pedal works really well as a bass fuzz).

The pedals origins go back to the classic Fuzz Face, still a favourite amongst us fuzz junkies after all these years, and with good reason!

The price is £80.00 + Shipping.

Soundclips to follow shortly.
