Rab Fuzz Parts List

Posted: 2010/04/12 in "Rab Fuzz"/ Kay Fuzztone Clone, DIY Guitar Effect Pedal Projects

So getting together the parts for the Rab Fuzz pedal, or Kay Fuzztone clone we will need the following:

  1. Crybaby Wah, for the enclosure and potentiometer  (preferably with 100k pot still in good shape)
  2. Resistors, 1/4 Watt: 10k (x6), 100k (x5), 1.8k (x2), 22k (x2), 47k, 200k, plus one for LED (optional)
  3. Capacitors, Electrolytic (typical 16-50V rating is just fine): 1uF 50V (x2), 10uF 16V(x4)
  4. Capacitors, Film: 2200pF, 4700pF, 0.1uF (x2)
  5. Diodes:  Germanium (i.e. 1N34A), or Silicon (1N914 or other type of your preference) (x2), plus an LED (optional) NOTE: Schematic shows Si diodes but I really prefer and recommend Ge after testing many of these. Small Bear Electronics sells NOS Ge diodes which work great here.
  6. Transistors: 2N3904 (x2), 2N5088 (x2) or similar NPN
  7. Wire
  8. 3PDT Switch for true bypass with LED indication, or DPDT if LED not needed
  9. 1/4″ Jacks, at least one of which is stereo (nice for switching the power circuit)
  10. 2.1mm DC input jack, for powering the pedal with an adapter
  11. Circuit Board
