Interesting that the Sola Sound MkII has three transistors - sounds like it's very similar to a Marshall Supa Fuzz.
Anyone else seen Jacques Stompboxes ?
On the Italian pedals page he has pics of a 2-knob Vox TB with three transistors, not two... same thing?

These things are probably almost all the same. Remember the Fuzz Face was a very popular type of circuit. Look at R.G.'s write up about the Fuzz Face. There's a bunch of pedals that are very similar.
The 3 transistor 2 knob Mark II is basically a germanium Fuzz Face with 1 extra transistor in front. Almost exactly like the silicon Rocket on my site.
Yeah, the biasing is different, but it's still a Fuzz Face.
Now that I think about it, 1 extra transistor and the Hornet can easily be a Tone Bender.

The component layout is identical to the Marshall Supa Fuzz. Let me get the values of the resistors and caps and we should be able to make a hybrid schematic that includes both.
