Wow. Just wow…. Built a couple of these last night and got to testing them around 9:00pm so unfortunately couldn’t play too loud but wow…. Used 2n3904 hfe around 280-320. Definitely my favorite EQD circuit, definitely in my top three favorite fuzz circuits. Hard to pick a favorite fuzz because they all sound a bit different and have different applications, but for your super thick, super saturated fuzz/distortion this one takes the cake for me. Makes me want to build the Elk Sustainer it’s based off of.

Great looking build!

I know what you mean about this one. Mine is permanently on a mini breadboard.....can't risk fixing whatever I plugged in wrong to make it sound so good.

Here I am rambling about my old build on your report (classy eh?).

Great looking build! :love:

Just reporting in as well that this project is awesome. The low end on this is better than on any muff I've played before. I got a chance last night to crank it up through my 18 watt and even with the not-ideal handling of low end, it sounded glorious. I even did a short demo playing heavy rocks. I was inspired by that eqd demo video by Boris playing with this pedal. Great job!

Now I need to learn how to make a clean uv printed enclosure from Tayda for it.

I just ordered a Tayda UV print (with gloss) for a purple enclosure that would look like this (circle dots are where the drill holes go). If you're interested I could send you the PDF I uploaded.

(Ignore the white outline around the artwork. I deleted that.)
