    I wouldn't buy anything from Scotty / ProAnalog.

    If you want a quality MKIV with no shenanigans go and speak to Stu Castledine.

    The main thing I took away from both those demo vids is that the wang bar thing sounds incredibly shit.

    Pedal does nothing much for me, sounds more of a distortion/fuzz than proper fuzz. For me growly, spitty, saggy etc is what I love about a good fuzz. You can't always use a fuzz just like it's any other OD pedal. Pick attack/angle and how you play the guitar can make a big impact on well/effectively a fuzz works (esp Fuzz Face type).

    That link about the builder would put me off anyway. What's with the American Jebus lovers writing bible crap in their pedals and charging silly money for them?

    Sounds great, like most basic germanium fuzz pedal clones out there. Wait, what am I missing. The fact it's aimed at religious people so, therefore, it costs twice as much as it should? Is that the catch? No idea.

    Jeeez doesn't sound good with dealings like that does it :(

    Apparently the Proanalog has a regular clipping section in addition to the fuzz transistors. Then again the circuit looks just as simple as a regular fuzz. I'd love to build a clone.

    diode clipping?    i don't see any diodes.   i see three transistors.   what's the yellow thing?

    I heard one demo video.   It didn't sound fuzz like enough for a fuzz for my liking.   Then I read some promo blurb: ah, it's not supposed to be a proper fuzz but a overdrive-cum-fuzz!  That explains it then. 
    So if you want a proper fuzz, look elsewhere as that's not it's intended purpose.

    I don't know a battery clip from a diode @Carew Can you recommend any resources to someone like me so I could identify components from gut shots like this? I want to educate myself.

    in respect of that pedal, on the top side of the circuit board, there are:
    - the 3 black things are transistors.  (often these look like silver food cans, though)
    - the maggot things with multi coloured stripes are resistors.
    - I dunno what that yellow thing is.  it might be diodes in a prepackaged thing.
    - all the other things are capacitors.  there are three types used here: ceramic rounded thin ones (4 of), jelly tot ones (red 1 of)  cylindrical film ones (2 of).
