Germanium MKIII TenderBone Fuzztone - £75Fuzz
This is a classic, and rightly so. I've selected the Mark III version to reproduce since it is in my opinion the most flexible version, you can cop Mark II sounds with a bit of tweaking, and the added tone control makes the pedal much more tuneable to your setup than a Mark II, which can be a suck-it-and-see pedal. Whole Lotta Love sounds are here in spades.
The Germanium MKIII TenderBone fuzztone is a positive ground pedal, which means that instead of using a standard pair of power rails at Ground (0V) and +9V, it utilises 0V and -9V in order to support the PNP germanium transistors. As a result it cannot be daisy chained with other 'regular' pedals (but can be daisy chained with other positive ground pedals, such as other similar fuzzes). For this reason I do add battery power as a standard cost-free option. I also include a Boss style DC jack input (2.1mm centre negative) and have wired this internally such that you can plug a regular Boss supply into the pedal and power it in isolation. It cannot be daisy chained still but this provides an option if you are without batteries or have a spare adaptor.
