Sweet Peach Fuzz Part 2

Sweet Peach Fuzz

After playing around with it for awhile, I’ve got some ideas for improvements and what-not:

  1. RV1 or R1 could be changed.  Below 9:00 on the pot, it stops amplifying.  Raising R1 or lowering RV2 would enable a slightly different taper that would not be turned off.
  2. A limiting resistor needs to be added between lug 3 of RV1 and the negative input to keep it from turning off.  It could be approximately the same value as R1.
  3. The diodes could be moved for a different texture.  If they were parallel to ground, either before or after stage 2, it would have hard clipping.  Adding it to Stage 1’s feedback would offer control over the amount of distortion.  Putting a pot in series with stage 2’s output and having the diodes cross from lug 3 to lug 1 would offer soft clipping with a control.
  4. That tone control is awesome.  I saw it at muzique and had to try it.  I’m glad I did.

The settings I like best as of now are: Frequency – 12:00, Tone – 3:00, and Volume 3:00.
