This is actually the Fuzz Face™ project termed as FF5, the “5” denotes there are a minimum of 5 different versions that you could build with this particular project. These are!
For any simple project, we advise the NPN Plastic Transistor Version. If you wish to develop a Germanium Transistor version, get the transistor set from Small Bear Electronics LLC and employ the resistor values he transmits using the transistors. His resistor designations (R2, etc) won’t be the same because the designations on these projects. This is actually the mix reference:
For those who have a typical power to power your pedals, the negative ground version works together with your other pedals on the common power. Begin to see the Charge Pump Wrapper below to obtain your positive ground pedal on the common power with your other pedals.
Trimmer or No Trimmer
The Germanium Transistor version and also the NPN Plastic Transistor version layouts have a 10k trimmer (R5T) that isn’t proven within the schematic. We feel this can be a worthy accessory for the circuits, providing you with more choices for the best seem you would like. Should you not desire to use the trimmer, this is actually the Fuzz Face™, No Trimmer Diagram pointed out within the Instructions file. This diagram is perfect for the Germanium Transistor version, however the jumper is identical for that NPN Plastic Transistor version.

Fuzz Face Germanium Transistor (Dallas Arbiter) Version
Fuzz Face Plastic Transistor (Dallas Arbiter) Version
Easy Face (Joe Gagan’s) Version
Boutique Late 60’s Fuzz Face Version
Boutique Late 60’s NPN Fuzz Face Version
This could use plastic or germanium NPN transistors with excellent results. List of materials is equivalent to the “Late 60’s List of materials above.
Boutique Early 70’s Fuzz Face Version
Fuzz Face PNP Germanium Transistor With Charge Pump Version
Adding electric power charge pump around the input power, provides you with the opportunity to daisy chain capacity to your PNP Positive ground pedal with your other negative ground pedals! Eliminate any requirement for special factors when powering your Fuzz Face using the other pedals in your pedal board.
Purchase a FF5 Complete Package. Includes all of the parts and materials you have to build one, all for around the cost you’d purchase a PCB and parts.
