JFET Vulcan (by Joe Davisson)

I populated and test-wired (see pic) the Gauss Markov layout of Joe Davisson's JFET Vulcan circuit. I'd heard a lot of good things about this circuit, and I'd had the board laying in my bin for a few months.

This thing rules. It's a three-JFET "fuzz-stortion", for lack of a better term. My initial impression is that it is reminds me of a transistor Big Muff, but a little fuller sounding somehow. Not better than a Muff, mind you, just different. I like it about as a good as a Muff, which is saying a lot.

Check out the original schematic for details.
