tycho octave VS. Fulltone octa-fuzz
i built the tycho octave from the schematic, which is the same as the fulltone octa-fuzz, which i own and used as reference. everything about the pedals are exactly the same except the fulltone uses a physically bigger transformer. i used the one from mouser pt.# 42TM022 (45/60 ohm). the fulltone also uses one from mouser (b/c it says mouser on it), but its a little bigger in size. the sound of the pedals is very close, but the fulltone seems to have a litter bigger bass and slightly thicker sound/feel. is there a way to measure a transfomer and find out which one it is? i.e. so i can get the same one from mouser thats in my fulltone?
