Laura Bennett painted B.Y.O.C. E.S.V. Fuzz Pre-built Pedal
This is the last of the 1st run of Laura Bennett painted boxes. This pedal is the coveted and now discontinued ESV Germanium fuzz from B.Y.O.C. They look as as great as they sound. The Build your Own Clone ESV Fuzz pre-built by Axe...and you shall receive is easily one of the best Fuzz face replicas on the market. This one is extra special as a third control has been added to the top to allow you to adjust Bias without removing the back to access the trimpot.
1/2watt carbon comp resistors, those shiny blue Vishay electrolytic caps, and that big flat yellow film cap for extra vintage mojo.
The BYOC E.S.V. Fuzz comes with a hand selected set of the extremely rare NOS Philips AC127/01. Like the E.S.V. 2-Knob Bender kit, the E.S.V. Fuzz was inspired by our recent acquisition of a large lot of pristine AC127/01. These are, in our opinion, the holy grail of negative ground vintage fuzz tone. Very thick, very wooly and very dark sounding. But with focus, clarity, sustain, and the ability to clean up into a nice grindy overdrive just like a vintage fuzz face should. And since these are NPN transistors, as opposed to the PNP NKT275 or AC128 that work best with a positive ground, the AC127/01 works best with negative ground. So they get along with all your other pedals and can run off a normal power supply, but still produce the vintage fuzz tone you expect.
You can't be serious about copping vintage tones without a good fuzz face...and this is one of the best.
