Here is a second installment of articles on Fuzz devices, originally written in German by our friend Bernd Meiser. It ties in quite seamlessly with the article on British effects devices previously posted – but it concentrates much more on the actual circuitry of the effects. Again, I had a lot of fun translating the article, and I hope you have as much fun reading it!
