Vintage-sounding germanium Fuzz pedal, a legendary sound that helped shape a generation... Made with carbon comp resistors for a pure vintage sound !
There are many variables that determine the quality, sound and cleanability of a Germanium Fuzz pedal. We feel transistor choice is crucial, therefore we have searched and found the best and extremely raregermanium transistors ever made : the CV7003, military-spec OC44 germanium transistors. The CV7003 is extremely consistent as well as heat-resistant, much more than the AC128 and NKT275 transistors are, making our Fuzz Phrase stand out from its competition. Each individual transistor is measured for gain and leakage and then hand picked and matched through sound audition.
Just mess around with the guitar volume to find the sweet spots, from clean, to rude, to devastating!
