i was asked to post a layout for the MLOD, so here it is. enjoy! i tried this circuit out with 2n5457, j201, and j309 fets. they all work fine.. the Q2 position is where most of the magic is. try different transistors for different tones. i enjoyed a 2n5210 with an Hfe of 250-300 there, myself. it had nice midrange content without sounding muddy. the images are at 600 dpi, a current limiting resistor for the LED has been added, and the gain pot can go up to 10k that's all you have. this circuit is a great sounding boost/light OD/ line driver/buffer. i hope you dig it!
take it easy!
LAYOUT IS VERIFIED.
i've decided to sell a limited number of Green Bomb fuzzes to anyone who wants to purchase one. each box will be a bit different, built old school style on tagboard, tuned by ear with whatever high quality components i choose to use at the time and true bypass. if you are interested, you can get ahold of me at apocalypseaudio(at)gmail.com. the price will be $150 each.
fsb forumite, helmut shows off his version of the GREEN BOMB called the FUZZ RIDE on his website http://aquataur.at.tf/. he did a great write up, showing his additions to the basic GB circuit. helmut added in and output buffers, as well as a sag switch for other tonal possibilities. there are some nice soundclips uploaded there as well. make sure to check out helmut's other articles- they are all great reads. thanks, helmut!
