welcome to Apocalypse Audio, your haven for DIY guitar effects in the end times. so, start prayin to the fuzz gods, savin up those parts, and remember, when the big one goes off- keep your transistors shielded from those pesky electromagnetic pulses!
DIRTY BOOTS V6
so i finally got my buddy's dirty boots finished. it's going to be used on guitar and organ, so i added a couple extra controls. a pre-bass and post-treble tone control combo work great together. this is the main recipe for filtering distortion pedals, so it's no surprise. i plan on doing a full overhaul of this design in the future, to see if i can optimize it any further, but until then, this one sounds great. here's the schematic i ended up with.
and some gut shots.
unfortunately i ran out of alpha pots in the values i needed, but the ones i ended up using are of decent quality. here's a couple clips i made of the harder fuzz that this pedal can do. the first is the DB by itself, the second is boosted. disregard the titles. it was 5:30 am when i got this thing finished last night.
