NOS Fairchild 2N3565 transistors

Keeley Black Top Fuzz · Guitar Effect

Robert Keeley had acquired a large stock of NOS Fairchild 2N3565 transistors and so it made sense to build a Fuzzpedal with this vintage high-end transistor. The result is the Keeley Black Top (after the black ink mark on the transistors) Fuzz. This fuzz pedal is in a tonally darker Group, no sawing, screeching highs, but rich, accented bass. Like all vintage transistor Fuzz stompboxes, the circuit is very sensitive to fluctuating mains voltages, with the "Spongy / Bold" switch a weak battery can be simulated. The basic sound is softer, more compressed. Despite the vintage components the pedal is low noise and insensitive to Temperature fluctuations.
