Meet Baby Yoda, a 3 can germanium fuzz box with voltage invertor so you can daisy chain! Based on the classic Baldwin Burns Buzzaround fuzz from the mid to late 60’s which in many peoples opinion is the holy grail fuzz box. Originals are ridiculously rare to come by and when they do you are looking at a 4-figure sum. It is the sound of Robert Fripp on David Bowie’s “Heroes” which also happens to be one of my favourite song. It barks & spits like an uncaged animal, it roars and cuts through like nothing I’ve ever heard. And there are so few original Buzzarounds left out there, let alone one that’s actually working properly, so we are left with few options other than recreate the fuzzy god of days gone by. I was amazed the tone, the rich harmonics, the fatness, the versatility, and the almost surreal openness of the sound with virtually any good guitar I plugged into it (ive not got any bad ones to try it with). The Baby Yoda can create a range of tones from classic vintage fuzz through to chunky overdrive and modern rock distortion. You’ve got 4 pots to play with, Volume, Sustain, Trim and Balance. This is an easy build. There’s no specialist knowledge needed, all the parts drop into place. Just please be careful soldering those beautiful germanium PNP’s into place. This kit is supplied with a JP 125B Enclosure. As you can see the PCB is designed for right angled mounted pots so you will have a nice neat build once comple. Wait. What’s this, your eyes do not deceive you. Top mounted jacks and power you say? You have the choice with this kit. Top or side mounted. The kit comes with the mini styled jacks as standard. If you’re after anything but the full kit, its irrelevant… I Wonder What it Compares to. This kit compares to the Buzzaround Fuzz. Build Guide – guide pdf is available for downlaod from my site. Whats Included with Each Option. PCB Only – Just the plain PCB. PCB & Components – PCB, onboard components and any pots and toggle switches. PCB & Components and off board parts – As above with off board components (foot switch, Jacks, 9v socket, LED). Full Kit – As above with undrilled enclosure. Full Kit & Drilling – Full kit with drilled enclosure. Drilling is an optional extra for the Full Kit. There is a small surcharge for this. Drilling includes all the holes for a complete pedal. You will need 4 knobs for this kit. I suggest you get medium sized. Please be sure to read the build document before you order. The kits are enjoyable but can also be challenging. You will have to identify components, calculate resistor codes and be able to solder them into place. All kits require full assembly and any images of completed PCBs are for reference only. If you want the kit pre building then select this option, you must add your knobs from the knob section or it will come without any!
