Has any one done a circuit lay out for this? I'd love to give it a go. I am quite new to pedals, I built a grey wah a few months back and that turned out O.K so I'm into the idea of giving the West Coast fuzz a go.

Slightly off topic but may be of interest to some. I picked up a Vox Superfuzz clone from a small, one man pedal company based in Spain called ananashed. Suprisingly cheap for a pedal of this quality and Pedro was a really great guy to deal with. Any way this was supposedly the fuzz Townshend used on Live at Leads and I gotta say it is an amazing pedal, really mind bending sounds.

It's going to take something quite incredible to kick this off my board. Maybe the West Coast Fuzz?

Revolver,

Check out Xplorer’s post on page 107. Has the layout and pictures of his build. This circuit is definitely worth it to say the least! It is absolutely the best fuzz circuit there is!

What happened to this nice forum ?,

anyway -nanablangy- kiss my non-vaccinated ass !!! (at least for several times !!!)

Well this was and still is a nice forum, even though there are not so many posts as before. We should still thank George for hosting this place, because it assuredly takes time and energy.

Yeah even though the virus funny business cost a lot of discussions by wrapping folks up in opposing narratives and various kinds of hysteria, the loss in interest has more to do with the amp and parts side of the business. Cloning old Marshall amps is still pretty rigorous, and I doubt the money is there to make it worthwhile, especially now, with supply issues and huge inflation.

But Xplorer and the others are still building, and the Hendrix Foundation is still working to recreate some of Jimi's original West Coast gear, so the spirit of this forum is very much alive and well. Fans and builders still check in now and again, so this can go on for a while, as long as George decides to keep it going. I check in too every so often to see how personal projects are coming along.

We remembered Jimi on the 18th; the seed he planted still has a lot of growth around the world.
