Standard fuzz pedals were just not fuzzy enough for me. Only the fuzziest fuzz pedal was going to be suitable for my musical endeavors. I searched high and low for the fuzziest fuzz pedal in the land, but I couldn't find it. Finally, I resolved that if I wanted a fuzzy fuzz pedal, I was going to have make my own. After much careful analysis and planing, I can confidently say that I have made the fuzziest guitar fuzz pedal ever to grace this planet Earth. If that's not enough to wet your whistle, it's squishy too.

Could you post a JPEG or some other image of the pattern, just for those of us who don't want to have to go to the trouble of opening those files through other means to get the picture content.
You can open an .eps on most computers.
What Program do I need to use to open it? I've tried Gimp, POV-Ray, and Adobe Reader.
Never mind, I found a pattern online at http://www.newconceptions.com/patpdf/TagToyspdf.pdf .
HAHAHA! I totally lost it at the video XD this is the best fuzz ever!!!!!!! EVAR!!!!!!
I'm not a stranger to working with electronics, but I'm still kinda new to things like this. What direction would current flow in this circuit, or does it matter? I would imagine so.
Put it in a teddy bear, give him a hug and rock!
how about the "Wuzza Bear"?
I think you should just call it Fuzz Pedal
Or, &quot;Big Muff&quot; as in <a rel="nofollow" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Muff_Pi">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Muff_Pi</a><br/>:P<br/>
How about "Fuzziest Fuzz Pedal"?
I think "Fuzzy Fuzz Pedal" covers it
