Solasound Tonebender was the only comercial and vintage fuzz I have that uses 3 Ge transistors. So I decided to use it as some kind of reference comparing it to my handmade NPN version of Baldwin Burns Buzzaround, the Fuxxaround. As the fuzz pot on the Tonebender only works when crancked up, both units was tested using their gains at the maximum. Both units tested in this order: bridge pickup, guitar Volume pot for cleaning the distortion and neck pickup. A Parker P-30 with Golden Lace Sensors was used. A clean amp model on Zoom was used in conjunction with an ART valve preamp, then it goes directly to the audio board on the computer. No acoustic feedback, earphones were used.
