Neutrik jacks, Vintage Philips, K40Y-9 Russian military grade, Sprague Vitamin Q paper in oil and vintage Tropical Fish capacitors, vintage carbon resistors, 22awg cloth wiring and true bypass switching.
This pedal runs on a standard Boss type 9v power supply (centre negative).
Gain – 1kb bias control – controls the amount of fuzzy gain, moves from balls out face melting to gentle dirt
Master Volume – 500k and does what one would expect
Switch 1 – 47k starve – reduces the power heading into the fuzz circuit. This will act like a dying battery, reduces some of the gain and harshness, with this switch selected the gain control dial becomes almost redundant.
Switch 2 – diode selector – choose between 1N4148 and a red LED. The 1N4148 is has some pretty harsh clipping compared to the red LED which brings the gain levels closer to overdrive sounds
Switch 3 – bass cut – running through the vintage Vitamin Q paper in oil cap, this will reduce your bass. With both switches set to on, you get a compressed, cutting fuzz
Switch 4 – .treble cut – running through the vintage Russian military K40Y-9 paper in oil capacitor, this switch will reduce your treble.
