PCB - Vintage Style Circuit Board, Iss. 1 Fuzz
This PCB is a recreation of the iss. 1 circuit board found in classic Fuzz Face pedals. When drawing the layout, multiple originals were closely referenced to ensure a proper match and fit. The copper traces are gold plated providing protection from corrosion indefinitely. This classic board fits the mounting holes on both original and reproduction Fuzz Face enclosures.

1 answers Hi. The board layout has the transistor leads labelled G, P, and C. I'm assuming C is collector. What are G and P? Thanks.
Asked by Anonymous on July 29th, 2022.
The board itself is labeled "C" "B" and "E" which stand for "collector" "base" and "emitter."
1 answers I have built 3 pedals from kits and have been happy with the work I did. Is this project appropriate for a novice electronics project? I may be a bit less novice than I give myself credit for and I'm looking for a challenge. I also like cool sounding pedals.
Asked by tony6 on July 29th, 2022.
Building the pedal based directly on the layout provided would absolutely be considered one of the most straightforward pedal builds. Refining the build to suit your personal tonal preferences can get as in depth as you deem appropriate.

The pcb layout is fine, but a schematic of the circuit ( jacks, switch, pots, etc ) would be nice.
