Hello. I am attempting to build a fuzz face from schematics found online :
The transistor are what I believe to be germanium PNP that I pulled from vintage avionics equipment, they have a rather low junction voltage (180-190mili)
The 2.2uF is two 1uF in parallel.
The 0.01uF is a 100nF
The 20uF is a 22uF
All the rest is as per schematics.
I can't get the fuzz knob anything high, or all I get is scratchy noise.
The volume knob is cranked up and I get a lower than I anticipated volume.
I am thinking values aren't well suited for the transistors?
Here's the breadboard http://imgur.com/ab7Hhnf
Here's a tentative on how it sounds, but recording doesn't show how loud and harsh the clipping sound ends up being... https://clyp.it/1t5ildsc
What should I be looking into? I am thinking the specific transistors needs different bias than what we get, but am not experienced in germanium whatsoever.
