I have been building Selmer Buzz Tones for a few groupies n fans recently.
Featuring original, near-impossible to source transistors, 2N2613 on choc brown paxoline board, on eyelets just like the original.
One small mod is the cap tuck away under the board, to give it some juice (otherwise it wont buzz!).
Cheapo build for a friend:
Another build.. featuring the Palenque astronaut..
Expensive nos carbon comp build for a groupie:
They all sound 👍🏿.
Syd Barrett’s hairy boost.. VERY WARM AND THICK. Perfect counterpart to Syd’s favourite amp settings, basically treble at 10.
Perfunctory build on eyelet board, with external vero for transistor testing, using 2N2613 as per original.
Very surprised by the final tone, i really like it.. Sounds very nice.
I broke out the wem copicat to have a better idea if it nails syd’s tone.

I also made a quick little excuse for a tune to test it further.. sorry for the hurried and far from great mix:
