Fuzzfaceless MKI with CAE MC-404

Post by Burger » Tue Dec 01, 2009 8:27 pm

My friend, TC from Derby, built me this MKI last week. I love it to bits.

Here's a quick cut from a clip I'm putting together for it (big clip up on the weekend).



Fuzzfaceless@gmail.com

For those wanting to know what's inside..

1. Third transistor is a 2G381 as per original Sola Sounds.
2. First and second are both NKT ACY20.
3. The first one is leaky. More leaky than you'd want to put in a fuzz face.
4. Caps are sprague orange drops (real old vintage ones) and one old sprague electrolytic, and one mullard mustard.
5. Some resistors changed but not a lot.
6. Output pot is a 100K.
7. It's got a treble bleed network on it too.
8. Old polyester caps and old carbon comp resistors throughout.
9. Switchcraft jacks.

USAians: Aluminum
Everybody else in the English speaking world: Aluminium

You'll notice if you look through the peridic table that there's not a whole lot of ~um elements (Molybdenum
and Tantalum come to mind), but a whole shedload of ~iums (Lithium, Beryllium, Sodium, Magnesium, Aluminium, Potassium, Scandium, Titanium, Selenium...)

-ium is just a Latin suffix indicating a metal
