The buzzz is my highly modified take on the classic and epically gnarly superfuzz circuit… made more super! I have always loved the beautifully discordant harmonics and searing fuzztones available in the original but as goes with everything, i felt the need to mess with the circuit and expand upon it.
The buzzz keeps the standard superfuzz sounds – a scrambled and clangy fuzz with pronounced upper octaving and lower harmonics/sub-frequencies – and adds additional controls to access milder dirty boost and drive tones, gated sputter and low buzz-tones.
The highly interactive controls include a wider gain range, voltage starve, gain modifier toggle, passive LPF, octave on/off and tone-blast toggle make for a surprisingly versatile fuzz capable of overdrive, buzzsaw fuzz and blistering octavia.
So many folks wanted the octave on a footswitch. wait no! The tone-blast on a footswitch. wWait no! Octave! Tone-blast! Ok ok, I relented and gave buzzz the ability to toggle the left footswitch function between either tone-blast or octave… the choice is yours!
Please use a standard 9V DC power supply (designed for musical instruments) with a negative center 2.1mm barrel and do NOT run at higher voltages. Peak current draw is around 18mA.
Gain: Controls the amount of gain from low drive to heavy fuzz. Works in conjunction with the gain modifier toggle for even more range!
Starve: Lowers the supply voltage for non-linear tone changes which include gating, decreased headroom and clarity and decreased frequency bandwidth. Clockwise is full 9V.
Volume: Simple enough. it can be LOUD, depending on the settings of the gain control, so start with it low.
Treble: A passive LPF.
Gain modifier toggle (black triangle): LEFT for less gain, RIGHT for more gain.
Oct/tone toggle, !!! Footswitch and white triangle toggle: these 3 controls work together in a unique way to provide 2 possible footswitch functions - either an octave up/down or a heavy midrange scoop/boost. When the triangle toggle is RIGHT, the oct/tone toggle controls the EQ while the !!! footswitch controls the octave. When the triangle toggle is to the LEFT, the oct/tone toggle controls the octave while the !!! Footswitch controls the EQ.
