The brand new series of Kasleder Acid Fuzz pedals are to invoke the most iconic sounds of the 60’s fuzz history with a few useful modifications making it a fun to use device with electric guitars of nearly all kind.
Kasleder Effects proudly introduces the Kasleder Germanium Acid Fuzz pedal. The circuitry of the light green fuzz pedal is based on two very rare NOS SFT 308 Germanium transistors inside. These – now are hard to find – transistors were responsible for the sound of the original Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face and Tone Bender MK 1.5 pedals as well.
The Kasleder Germanium Acid Fuzz faithfully reproduces the tonal qualities of the original Fuzz Face stomp boxes so delivers a sound true to its great predecessors. However its circuitry is based on the classic Fuzz Face circuitry, it has a few modifications to meet the demands of the present day player. The GE Acid Fuzz effects pedal’s maximum gain level is relatively low so it delivers a true warm vintage “wooly” fuzz tone character to your sound.
AND NOW (YOU KNOW, IT’S ALL) ABOUT THOSE KNOBS:
VOLUME: set output volume.
FUZZ: set amount of fuzz.
BODY: set input signal’s low frequency range. This feature makes it possible to sync the GE Acid Fuzz circuitry with guitar pickups of nearly all kind. By filtering the input’s low frequency range the Kasleder GE Acid Fuzz is ready to bring out the most of your guitar’s natural sound character. Setting BODY to minimum, FUZZ and SUSTAIN knobs to 12 o’clock the GE Acid Fuzz is ready to serve you as a Germanium Treble Booster such as the famous Dallas Rangemaster.
SUSTAIN: set the input impedance of the circuitry taking the job over from your guitar’s volume knob when the pedal is switched ON. It is an important characteristic of the FF circuitry that its fuzz texture gets more “clean” as input signal level turned lower so distortion level can be minimized – this feature was known to all the great fuzz users. This function can be really useful if you do not wish to use your guitar’s volume knob while playing.
All Kasleder effects pedals are True Bypass, built of high quality parts (Alpha potmeters, Neutrik jack plugs, Nichicon, Wima and Philips caps) to offer a no compromise solution for musicians with the highest expectations.
