“Ah, yes, the all-time classic.”
Two germanium transistors, three knobs.
What can go wrong?
You’re looking at a unique, hand-made, NOS-mojo laced overdrive / fuzz pedal. Two germanium transistors inside, about 40 years old. Taken from a sealed box. It can go from an almost clean boost to a super heavy fuzz, with all sweetest overdrive tones in between. It basically takes your tone, thickens it a bit and grows it a beard.
The biggest, middle knob is your drive / gain control. It’s the primary way to tame the pedal or unleash it. Top right knob sets the output volume. Lots of it on tap. Perfect for overdriving tube amps.
The top left knob is bias control. Think of it as an additional drive control, or a boost control. Set it to 9 o’clock, set the gain knob similarly, and you’ve got yourself a bluesy, jazzy bit of crunch on top of that warm boost. Dime both the knobs and you’re ready to audition for that Iron Maiden or AC/DC cover band. Apart from controlling boost, it also changes the texture of the fuzz. Set it low for a more sputtery response. Set it higher for smoother tones.
No tone control. It would only be a drag to what those vintage transistors can do. But you be the judge:
