Boss fz2/hyper fuzz pcb


#1

I just read your very awesome write up on the fz2. My question is will you being making a pcb for it? Also, if only using the “fuzz II” (super fuzz) setting and wanting to recreate that one, would I just make a super fuzz? Would that be the same?

I have a fz2 and it is my favorite pedal. I just worry about the day it goes down on tour and would also love to not have to take it on tour. Hence the clone I want to make. And just to reiterate, I just want the “fuzz II” circuit. The other 2 I never use. Especially the boost! Dont even know why they put that in the pedal.

Thank you and take care

Hello,

Not yet! There is only one schematic of the fz-2 online, and I am not very sure that it is correct.
I would need to trace the circuit!

The fuzz II circuit (my favorite too!) is the “scooped” setting of the Univox Super Fuzz. However, it is slightly different from a classic Super Fuzz because of the equalizer circuit.

A Super Fuzz classic circuit will be close but you will have less EQ possibilities (Super Fuzz can have a lot of trebles…)

I will consider it!
