||Anyone cracked the DIY code on a nice EJ Fuzz Tone?|
Just wondering if anyone has had any luck getting the a nice Eric Johnsonish fuzz tone from a DIY? Suggestions on schematics and parts????

The conventional wisdom is that transistors with particular hfe ranges for the Q1 and Q2 positions in a Fuzz Face (about 85 and 110, respectively) deliver a pleasing "classic" sound from such a unit.
At the same time, Johnson's tone is a product of so many elements, beginning with his fingers and touch, the guitar and pickups, his multi-amp arrangement, use of reverb, and the settings of everything, that it would be misplaced effort to concentrate too much on the component values in a single part of that rather lengthy signal chain.
