R1 is left up to the user depending on gain needs, R2 is unknown - experiment, the


op-amps are not critical, any standard ones could be used. This circuit was originally
intended for home audio use, but should be able to be hacked into an effect circuit
with very minor modification.

The op-amp can be any lownoise single op-amp, the original used a NE5534. The 2N44 could
probably be replaced by other PNP germanium transitors with out much change in sound. The
switching aspect has been left out of this schem, but you will probably want to add a bypass of
some type to this effect. The emphasis switch chooses a tone flavor, this could be expanded to
include a wider range of frequencies, but too small a cap value may cause oscillation. Any attempt
at taming the internal gain of this effect has been left out, but could be easily added. This can be
noisy depending on your rig, so a 10-15pf cap could be placed in the feedback loop of the op-amp
if your concerned about too much squeaking. -Jamie Heilman

The EH Big Muff Pi would probably be improved by modern input-jack power switching and a DPDT bypass switch.
This is the original schematic. The diode and transistor types are unknown. Probably any high gain NPN and 1N914s work.
Coupling caps marked by a * have been reported to sound better if changed to 0.1uf as have the ** marked ones if changed
to 1.0uf. The original transistors were marked SPT 87-103, and the original diodes were marked 525GY or 523GY (hard to
read).

High Frequency Brightener

These two effect modules are not actually "guitar" effects per say, but rather synth modules that will work on any
analog signal. The input and output impedances may need altering depending on your needs. The high frequency
brightener is nothing more than a simple treble booster with a gain control (1k) and an intensity control (5k). The
all signal brightener, however, has a seperate control for brightening the low end (100k*) as well as the high end of
the frequency spectrum (100k**). The 10k trimmer is a set and forget type adjustment. Set it so the circuit breaks
into oscillation, then back up the setting to the point where the oscillation just stops. These two modules were
excerpted from Music Synthesizers - A Manual of Design and Construction by Delton Horn; TAB Books, 1984.

Gretsch Controfuzz Model No. 7798

The Gretsch Controfuzz is a variant of the op-amp-driving-diode-clipper type of distorter. The only unusual features are that the distortion is run at high
boost all the time in the first opamp, and then subtracted from the dry signal in the second opamp. The amount of distortion mixed in is determined by the
"Distort" control, and the overall volume level when the distortion is switched in is set by the "Boost" control.

The op amps are both type 748, which needs a compensation capacitor (25 pF in this case) to be stable. Other modern opamps should work.

This is the original schematic, but it looks funny to me. I think that there should be a 100k resistor at the
(-) input of the second opamp to make it a pure inverter. As it is, that stage would have a very large
voltage gain, unbalancing what I think works as a full wave rectifier/current source for the LED in the
compression feedback loop. I would expect that the proper circuit is as shown in the fragment below.
I think the VTL5C2 LED/LDR module could be replaced with a CLM6000 if you could find one of those.

Wah Section

The Double Beat is another of those funky, funky Fuzz Wahs. The wah function is pretty standard, if a little quiet because of the resistive divider
in front of the wah section cutting the signal down. The Fuzz secttion is pretty good, though. It has a good sound - no surprise as the first section is
a lot like a Fuzz Face, but is followed up by yet another gain stage to distort even more. The three fuzz tone selections are RADICALLY different from
each other.

It is supposed to sound amazingly like a Tube Screamer. With the exception of the diodes,
the circuit is the same as the circuit for the Electra Power Overdrive module, which was
fitted inside some Electra guitars in the 70’s. It’s important to use germanium diodes to
get the right sound. Silicon is supposed to produce more power and less distortion. Ge
gives 0.4 volts of signal out, Si gives 1.4 volts. The values of the collector and emitter
resistors can be changed to give more or less gain and distortion. The unit is not just a
hard diode clipper, as the diodes load the output of the transistor and modify its gain as
they turn on, giving softer clipping than you would expect.

The Foxx Fuzz Wah includes a fuzz, an octave effect, a wah pedal, and in later versions a volume pedal al l in the same box.
The box, by the way, is covered in blue or red no-fooling stiff plastic fuzz. The wah has four different resonant frequencies
selected by a rotary switch. The inductor should be relatively easy to find, as it looks to be a somewhat standard part.
The volume pedal action is the default when wah is bypassed. Max volume is with the pedal all the way back, very odd.
- All transistors 2N3565-R249, NPN silicon in little plastic button packages.
- All diodes germanium
- All unmarked electrolytic capacitors 10 uF, 16Vdc.
The fuzz and octave section MAY be a copy of the Octavia pedal.
Note that the Wah pot is log (audio) taper. The wah sound is really sensitive to the positioning of the wah pot’s rotation in
the rack-and-pinion.

There are apparently two similar versions of the fuzz face. In one Q1 and Q2 were PNP germanium AC128 or NKT275 types in the other they were NPN sillicon
BC108C types. Now depending on which type you choose to build will influence some of the other components. For a PNP version the schematic is as shown, but if
you build the NPN version then the 470 ohm resistor marked by a * must be changed to 330 ohms and the battery and all the polarized capacitors must be reversed.
The original schematic is not exaclty what is shown above, it had a very complex switching system which has been simplified (nothing has been lost don’t worry) and
a unique grounding setup. Aside from that the schem is exact with minor differences in components on various units (eg. some had the 0.1uf cap listed as .047uf, which
shouldn’t make a difference as long as you feed a high impedance amp). The transistors are hard to find, the thing to look for is germanium transistors with a decent
gain factor (gain > 80). Note silicon transistors will clip harshly and may not sound good, though 2n3906 has been said to work.

The GEU is good sounding octave fuzz, with an optional mode of just fuzz. The fuzz is a fully rectified signal and is
quite chewy. For some the Fuzz alone might not be loud enough, this can be fixed by raising the value of the 820 ohm
resistor and lowering the 39k one. Or one could just replace both with a normal volume pot for a more standard
approach. The "struzz" is the fuzz with an octave higher signal mixed in. Good for singal notes and leads.

The transitor marked "*" has no markings other than three stripes; green, blue, white, from top to bottom.
It is PROBABLY a low gain NPN used as a dual diode with the anodes connected together at the base
of the final transistor. The continuity test on the device shows no conductivity except that the topmost pin
conducts when it is positive of the pins in the middle and other side; otherwise, no conduction. This is what
would be expected if it were an NPN with the same pinout (base, collector, emitter) as the other transistors.

The transitor marked "*" has no markings other than three stripes; green, blue, white, from top to bottom.
It is PROBABLY a low gain NPN used as a dual diode with the anodes connected together at the base
of the final transistor. The continuity test on the device shows no conductivity except that the topmost pin
conducts when it is positive of the pins in the middle and other side; otherwise, no conduction. This is what
would be expected if it were an NPN with the same pinout (base, collector, emitter) as the other transistors.

The Jordan Boss-Tone is another distorter from the Inna-Gotta-Have-A-Fuzza era of effects. This
circuit fragment shows only the effects circuit, not the in/out switching and the battery circuit. A DPDT
stomp switch and input-jack battery switching would finish this up nicely. Like many others, the
circuit is based on a collector voltage feedback single transistor circuit with a second transistor as a
buffer following the first gain stage. Others in this genre are the Vox Tone Bender and the venerable
Fuzz Face, although these do not have a diode-clipping limiter after the gain stages.

Kay Tremolo Model T-1

The Kay model T-1 tremolo is a very simple circuit. A twin-T oscillator circuit drives two bipolar transistors
to load the signal down after it is amplified by a single input stage. The sound of this is more like the
"repeat percussion" effect of Thomas Organ Vox amplifiers than the smooth variation in loudness of tube
based amplifier tremolos, but it is a useful sounding effect; just different. The pedal itself is a cheesy plastic
case with a wah-pedal like treadle which controls the speed of the oscillator. There is no tremolo depth
control, and the in/out switch is not shown on the schematic from the inside of the case, although it is a
very conventional DPDT bypass. The bypass was unique in that you had to slide a switch manually, no
stomp switch on this one.

Impedance Matcher Fuzz Preamp

The Maestro Fuzz is reputed to be the fuzz used in the recording of the Stones’ "Satisfaction". The
transistors are house numbered "991-002298" and the diode is house numbered "919-004799".
They are probably all germanium devices. The use of a squelch device is somewhat unique, possibly
put there to tame hiss and noise during quiet passages between notes. The two 50K pots which
have their wipers connected by resistors are wired so that as one increases, the other decreases,
giving a pan from one point in the circuit to another, probably changing the amount of distortion.
The last 50K pot is an output level control.

This unit could probably benefit from a modern DPDT switch setup to completely isolate the circuit
when it is switched out, and a modern input-jack power switching arrangement.

The MXR Hot Tubes is a commercial cousin of Craig Anderton’s "Tube Sound Fuzz". It differs in that it uses a dual
opamp input buffer, more stages, and more filtering. Also, there appears to be a DC offset in the bias points of two of
the inverter/distortion stages.
