OK, so I've gone a bit "Fuzz" crazy lately and in doing so, have built around 15 different circuits, both Ge PNP/NPN and SI versions.
Most of these circuits involve a 1k or 2k "Fuzz" pot and well, I dont have any so have been subbing 4k7 pots with 4k7 resistors across them.
This gets me close, but after say three quaters of the pots value I'm well
above where I should be, value-wise ! in particular where a 1k is required.
Many of these circuits have a Q2 or Q3 bias trimmer which can get altered by this "larger" pot value in the circuit.
I think its an advantage !
What i mean is that at the "top end" of a slightly over value fuzz pot I'm
getting a sort of "mis-biased" wild splatty area, and below all the nice correct "bias" fuzz tones are there
Sorry if this is "obvious" but its just something I've noticed and I quite
like the effect .... !
Does anyone think that I'm "missing" something by not using the correct
lower value pots in these circuits ?
