Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz Breadboard

Had to use 2 breadboards to fit this circuit on! Now I have to fit everything onto the stripboard on the right!
The Shin-Ei FY-2 Companion Fuzz is a rare Japanese pedal with a distinctive 'buzzsaw' sound. I used to have a Fuzz Wah made by them which was insane!

"Replace the battery when the sound become small"! : )

Electra Fuzz

Finished this today, an Electra Fuzz based on a circuit that used to be built in to some guitars in the 1960's. It's more of a distortion really but Fuzz fits better on the case!

Skunk Works ; ) 1

Got some aluminium sheet delivered to make the front panel for a new project I am working on. I'm going to re-house a number of devices in this large case (looks like an old projector case). Might take a while but should be very cool!
