The Roar Of The Grizzly

The Roar Of The Grizzly

I was listening to some fuzz demos when I found KMA’s Fuzzly Bear effect. I immediately fell in love with the sound, so I looked it up. Turns out it is a slightly modified Jordan Bosstone. It scratches and cracks, even some octave effect can be heard around the twelfth fret. I wouldn’t use it for riffing or heavy chords, but it can achieve great sounds for solos. It became a permanent pedal on my board.

There is no big wizardry here. Two transistors and a little twist: a sag type control that can decrease the voltage on the power rail. Basically it indeed is a Jordan Bosstone circuit. Yet again a nice example how one can achieve great sounds with less than two dozens of parts. The build docu can be found in the Projects menu.

    I would say it’s good for bass too, simply swapping C6 with a 100n, and replacing clipping diodes with one red and one blue 3mm LED’s. Tried several PNP trannies and liked a nos 2N2904.
