PCB - Mod® Electronics, Germanium Fuzz, For 1590B or 1590N1
PCB for a Fuzz Face style circuit with PCB mounted potentiometers. Its very low component count makes it a great beginner project. Builders can use preselected transistors from P-Q2N1309-SET-FF with its included resistors for R1 through R4 for a simple and great sounding germanium fuzz. If a builder wants to use their own transistors, the stock component values are also clearly labeled on the PCB. The transistor footprints fit P-SGP-001 sockets making swapping transistors a simple process so builders can experiment with a variety of types and values. This board was designed for a 1590N1/125B or C65-sized enclosure, with the potentiometers spaced 30mm apart. It can also be mounted using the two screw-mount holes with the potentiometers wired off-board. There are two screw-mounting holes which are designed for M3 screws.
Capacitor - Mod® Electronics, 50V, Oil Filled, Axial Lead
Mod® Electronics Oil Caps are high quality, hand-crafted capacitors that are the perfect choice for guitars, amplifiers, and all audio equipment. Each capacitor is impregnated with mineral oil for a void-free winding providing highly stable capacitance. The capacitor is hermetically sealed in an aluminum casing to ensure a long life. The detailed construction results in a precise capacitance with a tolerance of ±10%. Mod® Oil Caps also feature a red stripe to designate the outside foil. The 50V series are in smaller packages that are perfect for guitars, effects and more.

Chassis - Mod® Electronics, MK1 Fuzz, Pre-drilled, Folded 16 ga. Steel
Pre-drilled vintage style pedal enclosure by Mod® Electronics. The shape of this folded steel enclosure is inspired by the original MK1 Tone Bender enclosures and is pre-drilled to match the original layout of the MK1 pedal. The layout is intended for two pots, two jacks, and a footswitch so many fuzz varieties can be built in this enclosure. The MK1 fuzz enclosure features a removable bottom door for easy access to the battery. All required screws and rubber feet are included.
Chassis - Mod® Electronics, Wedge Shaped Fuzz, Pre-drilled, Folded 20 ga. Steel
Pre-drilled wedge shaped pedal enclosure by Mod® Electronics. The shape of this folded steel enclosure is inspired by the original FZ-1 and FZ-1A Fuzz Tone enclosures but the predilled layout is inspired by the Octavio and the early Carlsbro fuzz. This provides a classic pedal design with a layout that is more compatible with modern pedalboards than the original Fuzz Tone layout. The layout is intended for two pots, two jacks, and a footswitch so many fuzz varieties can be built in this enclosure. The wedge shaped fuzz enclosure features a hinged bottom cover for easy access to the battery. The four screws that attach the bottom are included.
