Os Mutantes Regulus VIII Fuzz Distortion Guitar Pedal
The Mutantes Fuzz aka 'Brazilian Fuzz' is a bright and nasty high-gain Fuzz, the circuit is based around 2 high quality NOS BC109 silcon Transistors There is no control over the amount of Gain, but a VOLUME Control. This is a noisy vintage Fuzz-Pedal, be prepared. We added a RF interference Filter-Section and a Diode clipping ON/OFF switch as well as a Diode Clipping amount Control. The HIGH/LOW switch gives 2 sound options, standard bright or doomy.
Conclusion: a beast, lots of fun to play, smokes many other Fuzzes in a pipe, but noisy high-gain cirucit
