The Carlin Compressor (aka Compressor/Fuzz) is a swedish cult classic built by Nils Olov Carlin in the 70's.Read the background to the compressor by the creator here. Have a look at my completed build here.
Note: It's important to set the trimmer just right, there is a small sweet spot -
Set the pots to maximum sustain and minimum fuzz and adjust until it's not too noisy.
Turn it up if you want more agressive compression/fuzz (at the expense of noise)
I noticed after doing this layout the moody sounds offers this one as a DIY kit or seperate PCB.
