I purchased a project box, a push switch, and a handful of NPN transistors from Radio Shack on the way home from working at the library. I swapped out the transistors and replaced the diodes with different sorts of LEDs but the fuzz box sounded pretty much the same no matter what I did. I like the sound. It only really makes a difference through the middle pickup on my Fender Highway One Stratocaster and even then, it is most noticeable on the low notes. It is a very limited pedal.
I decided to go ahead and transfer my circuit to a perf board. After drilling out the project box, soldering the perf board, and wiring up the jacks and the switch, the pedal does not work. I spent over an hour troubleshooting and found some mistakes, but after fixing them, the pedal still does not work. I think I will just start again from scratch as I have all the parts. Anyway, I thought I would share some photos from the adventure. When I have a working pedal, I will make a video.
Also, I'm not a fan of soldering.
