The Fuzz. Built this one using almost all junk parts from old crap I had kickin' around. I think the old caps sound killer. I never understood how some folks can't hear a difference in the type of cap. This thing rips. It's just a basic fuzz face kinda thing, circuit wise. Two transistors, some capacitors and resistors, couple of pots, etc. I used like six old resistors to make one 80K though, just soldered them in series. I didn't have the right value available. You can do that and it works just fine. It's just a radio shack project enclosure, I kinda like these crappy little aluminum ones though. Maybe that's just me.
