MOD Kits DIY: The Suspended Chime

I’ve had a germanium Fuzz Face kit staring me down every time I walk into the office to get some work done. There it sits, un-built for months, but ready to go. I even have the enclosure painted. So why isn’t it done? Truth be told, it’s my first foray into building a circuit. Yes, I know fuzzes are easy. Yes, I know it won’t take that much time and the reward will be huge when it’s all done and I’m able to rock out to the fuzzy...

New Pedal: KHDK Ghoul Screamer
