Hey folks, I wanted to highlight a great little effects company called Dirtgarden Effects. Brian is the builder and I just loved his work. I’m not sure if he’s building anymore since his site is now blank, but his ebay handle is “dirtgardeneffects”. I really like to support small builders, especially in the face of super high-priced newer effects pedals that get all hyped up in a fervor of tone quest reports and celebrity endorsements. Screw that! Dirtgarden’s builds are every bit as good as anything else out there, and the sound is there too!
Here’s how he described this Voxish fuzz:
Similar to a fuzz face, and cleans up well with your guitar’s volume control, but no warm fuzzyness in this circuit – all raspy, buzzsaw high end fuzz. The attack (fuzz) control is the mini knob between the chicken head knobs. The right knob (volts) controls the bias for different fuzz textures and volume. Toggle switch selects bigger output capacitor for increased bass. TI PNP germanium transistors. Power from 9v or 2.1mm boss type dc jack with no power supply conflicts. 125B style box. Handwired stripboard, Switchcraft jacks, true bypass footswitch. Thanks!
