Moody Fuzz kit

Moody Fuzz is a rock n roll pedal with a classic sound. Use it to get a nasty tone punch that follows the touch on the guitar in a neat way.

Very basic, two knobs, Fuzz and Volume. You can dial in a meaty lead sound with Fuzz turned up high. And you can use the pedal for rougher rhythm sounds with a lower setting on Fuzz. The Volume knobs sets the output volume right where you want it.

Moody Fuzz has true bypass. It is powered with a regular 9V adapter. You can solder on a battery contact to make battery power possible too.

Regarding the mods to Moody Fuzz kit. First it is very exciting to change the tone response of the circuit. This is easily done by changing the first capacitor “C1”. A few extra C1’s are included in the kit. A big C1 gives more bass. A low C1 gives less bass. It is also fun to see what the sound is like with different transistors. Two transistor sockets are included in the kit as well as two extra transistors, BC108C. You can try changing one or both and see how it affects the sound. Another popular mod is to change for germanium transistors. Read the suggestions for modifications section at the end of the manual to find out more. Also see the extended suggestions for mods pdf below (currently only in Swedish and referring to an earlier PCB layout).

    Excellent fuzz pedal. Easy to build, great mod options included and clear instructions. Sounds fantastic, works great with your volume and tone knob, quiet and good quality. Also suitable for beginners to get into the DYI world.

    Thank you Moody Sounds.
