P2P Mosrite Fuzzrite

Using 2n2222 transistors..
I must say this sounds great. Responds well to volume adjustments, cleans up to overdrive. Very usable.
If you turn down the fuzz it gets all maestro fz1 engulfed-like in a way..
Very vintage and garagey.

Seuss fuzz (at last..)

Mosrite fuzzrite clone for garage band, Seuss.
After building three different fuzzes for them, the one who got boxed is this. It suits the garage sound better than the previously tested, germanium fuzzface and maestro fz1.

The artwork is nos vintage stuff too!
My mate Rev (he plays the Vox organ in Seuss) complained about the Vespa the guy is riding. He’s a Lambretta scooterist.
Oh gimme a break.
