    i found it! i think? well i found sound clips

    http://www.moosapotamus.com/squarefuzz/squarefuzz.htm

    that first clip of moosapotamus's square fuzz is what i've been looking for. now that's the fuzz sound in my head.

    http://www.moosapotamus.com/brassmaster/brassmaster.htm

    the high sens clip on that page gets close, and has that nice synthy tone, but its messy also and more edgy. the squarewave fuzz is a lot neater sounding than other pedals like the clips on the chunk brown dog page and the effector 13 truly beautiful disaster page.

    now i just need to build this baby with two big potential snags, 1. moosapotamus made mods to the original squarewave circuit that he didnt document, and i asked but he never responded so i'll have to use the stock circuit, and 2. no clue whether or not it works with active basses.

    it'll be a while since it's my first effort into DIY, but the schematic looks relatively simple compared to the others i've looked at so it seems to be a decent place to start off at.
     
  2. Whooops... sorry, man... I meant to get back to reply to your PM... really... :oops:

    Anyway... I'm trying to log into that page on my site to see what I wrote there (it's been a while), but it's not working for me right now. But, as I recall, the mods I did back then did not really end up doing very much. So, the stock univox squarewave will probably get you most of the way there.

    I can't say how it would sound with an active bass. But, I will go back through my notes and post if there is anything else worth mentioning. :cool:
