    Manufacturer Description:
    This pedal is not a clone. Like the Interfax Harmonic Percolator, at its heart the PIGPILE has a very strange and unique configuration of two transistors (which we’ve cheekily dubbed the Harmonic Porkolating Pair, or HPP) not found in any other type of fuzz or distortion - however, the similarities pretty much end there. We used the old Percos as a jumping-off point and - with our ears to guide us - we analyzed, explored and experimented. We made dozens of prototypes, tried hundreds of ideas and tweaks, and then smashed all the best circuit bits together in a tiny box until they made friends. The end result is this flexible maniac of a fuzz pedal - huge, weird and gnarly when unleashed but tweakable enough to be house-trained. There are whole unexplored worlds of tone in this thing, waiting to be discovered. We hope you’ll enjoy finding them as much as we have.

    CONTROLS
    Boost: Toggles an optional pre-gain boost, available in either a bright or flat configuration. Adds more gain and nastiness into the mix.

    GE: Toggles optional Germanium clipping diodes that can be moved around the circuit for different fuzz flavors.

    Hi-Cut: Roll off your highs. This is like the tone knob on your guitar, but backwards - the further clockwise you go, the more highs you cut.

    Blend: A standard clean blend, handy to balance out your signal at some of the more extreme settings. Great for bass players as well!

    Level: Standard-issue volume control.

    Brutality: This is the weird, highly technical, and magical heart of the Pigpile. Turn this clockwise to make the fuzz behave in a more traditional fashion. Turn it counterclockwise to get progressively weirder. The footswitch at the bottom-left of the pedal increases the counterclockwise range, allowing you to get into glitchy, octavey madness.

    Harm: The gain control for this pedal. Clockwise means more grit, nastiness, and sustain.

    Note: The Harm and Brutality controls are interactive - tweak ‘em both, see what you can find in there!

    Depends on the settings.

    When you crank the Brutality, and hit the Hog Wild foot switch depending on the your Brutality setting, it gets weird and octavy.
