    I'm currently winning on ebay a vintage fuzz wah : JEN double sound, I kind of bid on it because it was close to me and because it seemed to be broken, just to lay my hands on something to fool around with my soldering iron.

    BUT it appears this pedal is quite rare and sought after (seen 275$ for one on the internet)

    So if I win i'd give it a test but i'm afraid I would like to mod it and I maybe could resell it after getting it back to work properly

    I really Dunno what to do?? ( I suppose wait until the end of the auction!!)

    ps: I'm paying 27 euro for it now

    I've got a fuzz face reissue and i can tell you that the circuit board is very simple, what seems to make the price of this baby is the two germanium transistors, so make sure the transistors are ok unless you want to install silicon's ones. Hope this helps you. ;)
