Germanium 'basic circuit' Fuzz Face Clone

After studying R.G. Keens The Technology of the Fuzz Face I decided to invest in a batch of old ac-128 Germanium transitors and see if I could find some good ones to make some Ge Fuzz pedals. After much testing of leakage and gain I isolated 12 medium gain, medium leakage examples. The photo is of the first of 2 'basic circuit' Germanium Fuzz Face clones that I will Be making, with the circuit taken from R.G. Keens article backed up with other sources. Here is a DI recording of the pedal. You will have to wait and see what I am going to do with the other 8 transistors ; )
