Title: Echo Nightmare : add a couple of diodes to give more compression to the Fuzz
Post by: eh la bas ma on March 15, 2021, 06:14:59 PM
Hello,
I am wondering if there is a way to add one or two diodes controled by an SPDT switch (with 3 terminals) on the Echo Nightmare's fuzz. In order to be able to add some compression to the signal when the fuzz is engaged.

I dont know where would be the best spot on the circuit to try that, or if it is even possible.

 Maybe between the Fuzz's pot and R19, or across the fuzz pot's outer terminals  ?

Some help would be welcome !

I'd try spanning lugs 1 and 2 of the Fuzz pot first. It will change the character of the distortion, but maybe you'll like it.
