£100 Hand Wired Effect Pedals

THE ‘1960s STYLE GERMANIUM CLASSIC’ IS AN EXTREMELY EASY TO USE AND VERSATILE OVERDRIVE/DISTORTION/FUZZ UNIT, CAPABLE OF RECREATING THE MOST ICONIC DRIVE SOUNDS OF THE 60s.


GERMANIUM IS AN ELEMENT USED TO MAKE TRANSISTORS, A COMPONENT USED IN THE HEART OF THE ORIGINAL 1960s GAIN DEVICES, UNTIL LOWER-COSTING SILICON TRANSISTORS REPLACED THEM IN THE EARLY 70s. SUBJECTIVELY, THE SOUND OF GERMANIUM DEVICES OFFER A SOFTER AND WARMER SATURATION THAN THE SILICON KIND.


WE HAVE SPECIALLY ENGINEERED THIS RARE ‘PEDAL-CHAIN FRIENDLY’ GERMANIUM-BASED CIRCUIT TO RESPOND WELL WITH THE INSTRUMENT'S VOLUME CONTROL (OR OUTPUT VOLUME OF ANY EFFECTS PRIOR IN THE CHAIN) SO THE OVERDRIVE CAN BE SOFTENED FURTHER OR THE DISTORTION INTENSIFIED BY SIMPLY ADJUSTING THE SIGNAL LEVEL RUNNING INTO THE UNIT.


BE SURE TO TRY THIS PEDAL IN VARIOUS POSITIONS WITHIN YOUR PEDAL CHAIN, TO ESTABLISH WHICH ARRANGEMENT GIVES THE BEST RESULTS. WE RECOMMEND PLACING IT AFTER COMPRESSORS AND BOOSTS.
