Made by hand in the shop based in rural Indiana. Built in an old microphone
One volume knob and a two-way gain switch provide you all the fuzz most folks need. There is no gain knob. The switch selects one of two preset gain levels. This pedal loves loud crunchy amps and being stacked with overdrives.
The first selection on the switch provides a pretty heavy fuzz. The second stage is a more noisy and over-the-top fuzz. Either setting will clean up when you lower the volume on your guitar or use some dynamics in your playing.
The microphone can detach from the base. There is a thumbscrew in the base to detach it. If using the fuzz in a studio, leaving it on the base provides you with an easy go-to fuzz you can set on top of the amp and tweak as needed.
Uses 9v/200mA center negative power supply (not included). This pedal does not use batteries.
