HARMONICALLY RICH HYBRID DISTORTION:
Noir Fuzz is a hybrid germanium/silicon fuzz pedal with a broad dynamic range that transforms your signal into harmonically-rich gritty fuzz.
GERMANIUM TRANSISTOR BREAKUP + SILICON DIODE CLIPPING:
This pedal combines the sound of germanium transistor breakup (via the BIAS knob) and symmetrical silicon diode clipping, all pushed by a high-gain silicon transistor, creating a dynamic fuzz sound while retaining all of the articulation of your playing. The topology is similar to a Tone Bender MKIII.
DIAL-IN THE FUZZ:
Turn the BIAS knob clockwise to increase the amount of germanium transistor breakup. The BIAS and FUZZ knobs are very interactive. The harder the FUZZ is cranked, the more the BIAS control compresses and squashes out the signal.
DIRTY CLEAN… OR CLEAN DIRTY?
This pedal aims to nail that clean-dirty sound, achieving a big fuzz sound without washing out your tone. This pedal plays extremely well with other pedals and fits anywhere in the signal chain.
