Strange EHX Axis Fuzz...?

Check out this oddity, and yet another awesome contribution from our friend Jerms; it's an Electro Harmonix Axis Fuzz that isn't really an Axis Fuzz at all...

"So what is it ?" you may be asking.
We'll just let Jerms explain himself;
I traced it out and it is a 2 transistor muff fuzz with a big muff tone stack tacked on, with a makeup gain transistor added on the end.
I'm sure that is what you were thinking.

Check out the amazing point-to-point wiring going on in there!
Always thankful to Jerms and especially for sharing this badass fuzz, as it becomes yet another piece of the greater Big Muff puzzle.

Thank you for checking us out.

Rotosound Fuzz Box, how I covet thee...

Back in August, friend of the blog John posted a write-up of a new addition to his fuzzy family, over at my 2nd home the D*A*M Board.  It's the incredibly rare and highly sought after Rotosound Fuzz Box.  This one is extra special in that it's equipped with 3 Mullard OC81D's (regarded by many to be the pinnacle of fuzz transistors). 

The sound is as raw as you can get, and would easily engulf a stadium full of screaming, drunk, dazed and confused Rock fanatics. Although there was a recent "reissue"of this icon, many feel as though it fell well short of this ability to capture the masses...
I'll let you be the judge.

so here she is in all her badass glory///
(a big thanks to John for sharing the love!)


thanks for reading!
