Fulltone 69, too much bass...
Hi all,  
I hope you can help me out with this: I build the Fulltone 69 fuzz http://members.tripod.com/~Bonej/69_Pedal.gif and I really like it, except that there's so much low end in the pedal, it's just too much.  
 
Thanks for any help!

Decrease the input capacitor from 2.2uF to 1uF or even less, to your taste.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Thanks alot R.G.!  
I can build pedals from schematics, but I'm still not at the point where I can mod the pedals the way I want it.  
I'll try this immediately.  
I'm the guy who had these nasty "plops"....I got that problem solved btw.  
Thanks again!

When hitting the DPDT switch I had these nasty plops...  
I used to make my effects on VERO. For some reason there was this DC-offset.  
Now I make my own PCB's and it's over....
