    Has anyone built a Vox Tonebender or Solasound Mk1.5 Tonebender using the PUFF board?  These circuits are pretty much the same as a Fuzz Face, but with slightly different component values.  There are 2 different Vox Benders with slightly different component values.  I think next time I have the opportunity to get a PUFF board on sale, I may take the plunge.  If I build one of these and build a Mk3, I will have all the Tonebender versions, although I need to finish the Supa version that I just started working on.  I believe I have all the requisite transistors.

    The Si version of the Vox could be built with a GBOF board as it should not need a charge pump (unless you use PNP Si transistors).  The differences are shown below for your education and enjoyment.  The values in black are the default component values of the FF.

    I have done that with two different versions of the PUFF.  Used PNP Germanium transistors in both.  They are interesting and different, very vintage-y sounding.
