Maggie Fake-tory Fuzz
Matt Bellamy likes this fuzz. He liked it so much he put a few in his few guitars. Five very interactive knobs on this one, with some very odd tones to boot. You'll also get weird noises, gated fuzz, awesome drive and many other tones outputting from this Germanium based fuzz. The PCB has spots for the Fat toggle, but this kit is the standard version so you won't get that.
There are a few other Fake-tory versions on our site so check them all out.
The PCB has full board mounting capability going on!
This kit is an intermediate level build but its one of those rite of passage pedals that nearly everyone who does DIY builds. 4/10 difficulty wise.
This kit is supplied with a JP125B enclosure, which if drilled will not have the top centre hole as that would be for the Fatter version toggle.
I Wonder What it Compares to
This kit compares to the Fuzz Factory by Zvex.
There is no endorsement or approval from any manufacturer and this information is for comparison only.
Whats Included with Each Option
PCB Only - Just the plain PCB
PCB & Components - PCB, onboard components and any pots and toggle switches.
PCB & Components and off board parts - As above with off board components (foot switch, Jacks, 9v socket, LED)
Full Kit - As above with undrilled enclosure.
Full Kit & Drilling - Full kit with drilled enclosure.
Drilling is an optional extra for the Full Kit. There is a small surcharge for this.
Drilling includes all the holes for a complete pedal.
You will need 5 knobs for this kit. I suggest you get skinny.
Please be sure to read the build document before you order. The kits are enjoyable but can also be challenging.
You will have to identify components, calculate resistor codes and be able to solder them into place.
All kits require full assembly and any images of completed PCBs are for reference only.
Pre Built Kit
If you want the kit pre building then select this option, you must add your knobs from the knob section or it will come without any!
The pre build options is exactly that, you are buying a kit and I am doing the build for you. There are no returns accepted on these but I do give a 12 month repair warranty so should a fault be developed I will repair it.
