Sonus BC108 Silicon Fuzz
The BC108 with '68 original circuitry. It's a subdued little beast. Subdued? Yes, it has a soft driving distortion that will create a smooth fuzztone. The difference between silicon and germanium is not only the transistors and the reversal of polarity but higher gain. In order to compensate for the increase in gain some components on the board need to 'choke' the increased output. This will create a more tamed/introverted fuzztone. I select for even medium gain transistors that will be matched to see if they do not oscillate or create weird Japanese sentences. The BC108 is less flubbery than a germanium fuzz and is easier to keep tight. This fuzz needs to be played LOUD!
