***About this box: This is a Distortion Box with CV control. Same circuit that is in the flagship EFCcv. Its been retro fitted into a vintage transistor checker. The Hickok Model 890A is very large box. 11″x 8.5″ and at its tallest rear point 6.25″. There is one of these selling on Amazon for $495 and it just checks transistors! This one will make your music fantastic. **Disclaimer: Will only make your music sound fantastic if you like applying distortion to tracks. Not good for all types of music! I’ll send out a card with the box that explains each knob. The 4 1/4″ jacks on the upper top side are the CV control for the different parts of the distortion. 1/4″ in/out jacks on right side of box. Requires a 9volt power supply. (Not included) Below is a video and more info on the EFCcv.
***New Control voltage features. +5 volts controls “Hurt” “Pain” “Feedback Noise OSC” and “Distortion output” the EFCcv also has a new input attenuation knob.
****This is an advanced modded version of the regular Electron Fuzz Custom. The “EFCcv” has a number of features not available in the aluminum etched boxed versions. With the addition of 4 Control Voltage inputs to control the major features the sonic possibilities have been even further expanded.
The inputs are large format 1/4″. The top panel is a very thick 1/8th inch aluminum plate. the EFCcv Requires a standard 9volt power supply (not included)
“Distortion Out” is the independent distortion volume. The “Output” CV controls the distortion out and works as a simple VCA. “Hurt” and “Pain” are tone controls tied into different gain stages. Both are controllable via CV.
The “Bleed Out” knob controls a clean mix. If your using this with keyboards or with guitar and wish to maintain the integrity and warmth of your original signal you can mix in a separate boosted clean signal. Both clean and distorted signals can be controlled separately. This works very well with bass guitar and helps retain the low end.
The “Decay” toggle engages a couple of germanium diodes. They add a saturation to your clean signal only. Adds a nice flavor when mixing that clean signal back in with the fully distorted signal.
The “FB OSC” or “Feedback oscillation” can make the pedal sound almost 8bit or add some interesting screeching characteristics to your sound. This effect is still separate from the clean mix increasing the ability to add texture to a warmer boosted signal. The CV control can create ramps up or down in pitch.
