Mark,  
 
What transistors does this fuzz use? I would assume some sort of Germaniums from the circuit. Any original part #s, or recomended general replacements?

O.K. - I read the page and found the original #. This thing uses Silicons? That's pretty sick. I may have to throw one together.

Yup, just plain ordinary easy-to-get 2SC536 trannies. Mine is big ugly ceramic caps throughout. I have no idea if that is influential or not. I will say that the harder you push this thing, the more beautifully sick it gets. Stick a hot compressor output or even a simple booster ahead of it and be prepared to mop up on aisle 4!
