Here’s a layout of the 10 minute Fuzz, originally called the BazzFuss built by Christian Hemmo in the late 90’s. Probably the easiest transistorized pedal you can build, experiment with different…Continue

Thanx Jon, you know, the majority of effects coming out right now are externally powered, batteries are becoming obsolete in stompboxes , real fast. Except the boutique style builders? I like batteries too, but good ones are becoming expensive, regulated wall warts are the best solution? having that low voltage cut will actually cut the voltage to the circuit when it kicks on, so maybe learn how to tune it to a lower specific voltage?

BTW Brian I really like your posts, they are always interesting and I learn from them, keep up the good work

Hi Brian, BLC and OGB, I am (if and when I get the time) trying to build a simple battery low voltage cut off circuit so you don't kill your battery, I'd be interested if you think this is a good idea or is too complicated. I found this generic circuit on the Instructables website posted by "Iceng"

Built prototype with some unused wire terminals & an odd size wood scrap. I just hate to throw things away, so I use them to so I build quirky stuff with it instead.

Louis, U can get a looper pedal on eBay less than $40. Search ”Amoon “ looper pedal- most affordable on market. I’ve seen them in action, not bad?

Really nothing 2 see, jus plain boxes with knobs n jacks. I make mostly fuzz & some tube screamer types, I favor dirt pedals.

Hello, I'm new here. I play cbg's foor 6 months now. I am looking for an affordable looper that does the trick. Just lopping, unlimited layer adding and easy to use. Any sugestions?
