Baldwin Burns Buzzaround

For no particular reason here’s an experimental vero layout for the Buzzaround, a ToneBender MkII style fuzz. I’ve tried to incorporate a voltage converter on-board so as to make the circuit usable with modern power supplies. Hope it works as I intend.


Update (15.08.2013): Verified as working, thanks to Benno!

Request: Roger Mayer Octavia

Put together this one tonight on an impulse. I’m guessing this is pretty similar to the Tycobrahe Octavia. I’m thinking the diodes should probably be matched for best effect, and I’m unsure about the orientation of the drive pot so you might have to re-orient it (let me know and I’ll update the layout).


Update (15.01.2013): Already verified thanks to Alex. The drive pot was reversed, but the layout has been updated.

Request: Zvex Octane 2

I’m taking a guess this is an octave fuzz of some kind. Let me know if this works and what you think of it 🙂

Update (11.11.2012): Built this one tonight and found, as was reported, that Q3/Q4 were slightly misbiased. I changed R12 from 1K to 2.2K according to another schematic and this solved it. There’s also the option of changing R17 from 10K to 4.7K instead, thanks to Mrlindell for that suggestion.

Request: Univox Super-Fuzz

Based this on a schematic I found on FSB of unknown origin utilizing the 2SC828 transistor (notice pinout on this one). I found another schematic as well using 2N2222s and slightly different resistor values, but chose to go with the 2SC828 one. Here’s to hoping it checks out!

Oh, and I’m pretty sure this’ll fit in a 1590B enclosure 🙂

Update (10.11.2012): Built this one myself tonight. I didn’t have any 2SC828 transistors, but used 2N2222’s with no problems (just watch the pinouts, had to bend the legs a bit), so I can happily say that this works.

Request: Devi Ever Shoegazer

I wasn’t able to find any schematic for this effect, but from what I’ve gathered it’s a combination of two other effects, the “Torn’s Peaker” and the “Sode Meiser”, wired in series so here’s a layout for each of those instead. Pot tapers are guesses, both layouts can use PCB-mount pots if you’d like. Let me know if you build any/both. And thanks to Devi Ever for the effect schematics.

Torn’s Peaker layout:

Soda Meiser layout:

Update (31.01.2012): Swapped C2 and C3 on the Torn’s Peaker. This one is now verified, thanks to Milkit and MikeT.

Update (10.02.2012): Built the SodaMeiser the other day, which worked as advertised. Verified.
