- sets the output level of the effect to your amplifier.
- adjusts the amount of Fuzz.
- adjusts smoothness of the effect.
The Silly Silicon design is based around the later models of the Fuzz Face with a few tweaks from us. It uses two NPN BC108 silicon transistors to provide the classic Fuzz effect of the 60s and 70s but we have added an extra op-amp on the output to boost the signal. The Silly Silicon is totally hand build using a high quality PCB and point to point methods, it is built to last. The result is instant Hendrix and Page, just add talent!
The Silly Silicon is fitted with a PP3 9v battery but also has a 2.1mm external PSU adaptor for use with a 9v @ 200mA external supply.
Important -the external supply must be positive centre, which means negative outer. The external PSU and the battery both have reverse polarity protection so no harm will be done if you get it wrong. The supply is connected automatically to the circuit when you plug in your guitar, so don't forget to unplug in when not in use or the battery will go flat!
