These vintage plans from Popular Electronics Magazine have launched thousands of garage bands over the years. In 1967, they first published the classic "Fuzzbox for Under $3" article and everyone was buzzing Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones. Soon after, they hit again with "Treble Boost for Your Guitar" in 1969, paving the way for Brian May tones and louder, more rockin' solos.
Kick out the jams, brothers and sisters...
Anyone who has Alfred E Newman as their picture has a one check in the good column :-)
Transistor for the Treble Boost has been obsolete for decades, use 2n2222, BC547, 2n3904. any NPN with 300-350 hfe, watch out, BC series has different pin out?
The Germanium diode in the Fuzz box is on the rare side, depending on where you are, so I suggest using 1n34a & 1n270 Germanium diodes, as they are more common & easier to find?
