Ok, so last year I thought it would be cool to do a sparkle green Electron Fuzz Custom for St. Patricks day. I ordered 2 and had them etched. Upon receiving them I realized how non RML they looked in real life. Dare I say …ugly. Yes, I was looking at the the ugliest EFC ever! I’m not a sparkle kinda guy and the lack of contrast with the lettering just looks awful to me. So I put it on line and someone who really likes green bought it. I decided I’d just release one a year at a discounted price. So this is the 2nd annual St. Patricks day Irish EFC.
About the EFC:
The Electron Fuzz “Custom” is an extremely high gain distortion. Seriously, normal volume setting is at about 10% of its full output potential. Two gain/tone controls “Hurt” and “Pain” give a variety of tone textures and a feedback noise loop can be adjusted to add a very gritty almost 8-bit sound or a squelching scream. (Great for droning or well crafted solos and recording). The extra stomp switch adds 2 more additional gain stages and a boost of high end to the sound. Best of all the distortion oscillates when notes are held adding a new level of expression.
***Orders may take 1-2 weeks depending on availability of meters.
Here is a great demo video from the “Pedal and Effects” youtube channel featuring Alessandro Cortini of NIN, Sonoio and Modwheelmood.
- Things I personally enjoy about this pedal:
- Fuzzy to crunchy tones
- Wide range of possible textures and character
- Expressive distortion oscillations
- Feedback noise loop for unusual sound design
- Extremely high gain for recording direct to your DAW
- Use with guitars and keyboards
- VU meter responds to your playing
The red LED on the radio tower switches on when boost mode is enabled. A convent way to know where you are when playing.
• Knob controls:
A unique approach to tone control…
Hurt: Controls the gain of 3rd gain stage. Lowering the gain will also reduce low end.
Pain: Controls the gain of the 2nd transistor gain stage. Lowering the gain will reduce high end.
Output: Volume/saturation. Take some of the edge off the mix or crank the pain and hurt all the way for a big, dirty, crunchy fuzz.
FB Noise: On/Off adjusts the amount of feedback in the circuit for noise making. Creates a weird octave mod fx.
• Switch controls:
Low cut toggle: Cuts the low end for a slightly less bassy more gated sound.
x1000 gain: On left stomp switch. This takes your sound through an addition 2 transistor gain stages and pushes the electrons way past 11! The booster switch adds a loud and dirty, thrash crunch to this versatile pedal. Incredible for feedback noise and FX textures. Can cause the parasitic frequency oscillation but sounds awesome while playing.
True Bypass: Lets you play through the pedal.
• Meter: Responds to your playing, and reflects first gain stage transistor distortion. Illuminates when active.
