One of a kind. Not the CV version of the pedal.
This is an Electron Fuzz Custom pedal built out of an old oscilloscope or “Indicator Scope”. This was a very rare scope. So rare I am un able to find another like it. I am even un able to find a photo of one. Original panel, knobs, mini meter and screen bezel. The scope was very deep. I stripped off the front panel and built a maple box for it. In order to keep the integrity of the piece we only added 3 mini toggles. NO stomp switch. So this will have to be used on the desktop. Guitar or synths is recommended. You can even use it with an amp, just NO stomp switch. The meter flashes green when a signal is fed into it. The panel shows signs of wear. The green scope face and scale target are also original. It sat in front of a very tiny (and long) cathode ray tube. The needle on the mini meter will approximately hit the green space when the “X1000” toggle is engaged. Much of that will be determined by your power supply. Please use a regulated 9volt with a negative tip. (Supply not included) ***Please note the knob order form top to bottom is as follows: Hurt, Pain, Feedback OSC and volume. The toggle to the right of the word “Focus” is the “Low Cut” toggle and the toggle to the left of the mini meter is the “X1000” gain boost. The toggle to the right of the mini meter is “Bypass”
A cheat card will be included with the purchase. The last odd looking knob at the bottom is not part of the original unit. That was were the probe plugged in. We chose an odd looking knob for character. Much like something you would see on a modeled plugin.
More on the Electron Fuzz Custom:
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.

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.
