Ampeg Scrambler

This is an out of hand octave fuzz w/ some ring modulation. This is my favorite fuzz pedal.

I use 2N5306’s for Q1,Q3 & Q4. I use a 2N3904 for Q2.

    Whats the small yellow rectangle labeled .01uF? Some sort of a capacitor? Also, what is RLED? A resistor to adjust LED brightness?

  2. Nathan Hensel Says:

    One more thing. Transistors- you said you used 2N5036’s and a 2N3904, can i just use any 2N transistors?

  3. Mitchell Says:

    yes the yellow rectangle is a capacitor. for RLED i would use a 270 to 330 ohm resistor, this just allows the LED to run off the 9 volts
