    Thanks! Both are totally original and new... One side is an old school style square-wave shaper... gated and with a very vintage, synthy vibe to it (the Filter knob will serve as a shape changer, rounding the corners). The other side is a 4 stage CMOS high gain fat, fuzzy distortion.

    By combining both all sort of weird things happen... from just mixing the "textures" to dirty phaser-like effects... it can get pretty crazy and unusual.

    2 Cool things about it (and main reason of why this design was so tricky) is that it's intended to work very consistently regardless of the rig used: most Fuzzes tend to prefer passive basses and not like cabinets with tweeters.

    Spencer and I corrected that by adding input buffers (necessary for the Blend knob to work properly) and by using an active Filter control, making the adjustment of 'bite' and high harmonic content a breeze to dial.

    Yep, no fuzz face/big muff/whatever derivatives here.
     
  12. This looks awesome! Any idea what it's going to sell for?

    Thank goodness. I have tried a lot of the top tier fuzz pedals, and nearly all of the good ones sound similar. Each has it's own small niche or feature, but overall, they strike a similar tone. Perhaps I don't have a discerning ear.

    I thought I was done with fuzz shopping, but if I hear some samples soon that might change. WANT!

    My piggy bank just ambled over to thank me for not liking fuzzes.

    Though from the description it's not your average fuzz, is it? Hmm ... :p

    This pedal looks killer! Very clever idea, fuzz blending with a clean blend. That should allow folks to emphasize the parts of the fuzz they want.. great job. :)

    Pretty sure I don't want or need fuzz, but I'm willing to be persuaded...

    Your ears are not the problem....most designers just copy and paste.
