PCB - Vintage Style Circuit Board, FZ-1 Fuzz, Phenolic Board
FZ-1 fuzz circuit board made with a phenolic substrate for an even closer match to the vintage production boards. Phenolic boards are found in many vintage electronics before the use of fiberglass became common. This board is a recreation of the circuit board found in Maestro FZ-1 pedals. The board is styled after the original version that can also be found in early serial Maestro FZ-1A pedals. When drawing the layout, original boards were closely referenced to ensure a proper match and fit. This board is intended for use with S-HEYE-A eyelets (sold separately). The build style is very straightforward with point to point connections. For a detailed drawing of the parts and connections originally used on this board, please see the layout drawing linked below.
