Guitar fuzz

Posted on Mar 10, 2013

The 741 has a maximum gain of 20,000, but the circuit is so designed that the IC`s gain is 2,700,000 which then distorts the output. This distortion gives the fuzz effect. The two diodes clip the output to drop the level, also lowered by the potential divider

This circuit also sustains the notes, due to clipping, giving a totally new sound.
