Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face
A hot-rodded adaptation of the classic fuzz pedal made famous by Jimi Hendrix.
The Solaris Fuzz project is the ultimate clone of the Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face, one of the most ubiquitous effects in the DIY and boutique effect landscape. While the original Fuzz Face is a very simple circuit, many modifications have been made in the nearly 50 years since it was first introduced.
This PCB will allow you to build with germanium or silicon transistors (or a hybrid like Joe Gagan’s Easy Face), positive or negative ground, the original two knobs or as many as five. It also incorporates an optional charge pump, allowing you to use a standard 9v center-negative power supply while still using PNP germanium transistors.
