From the company that brought you the
Experience octave-fuzz comes the Supernatural
Germanium ($300 direct), a
germanium transistor-powered fuzz that,
according to Prescription’s Jack Brossart,
was inspired by Peter Green’s tone on the
song “Supernatural.” The true-bypass pedal
sports an LED status indicator, a rugged
mechanical footswitch, and a study metal
enclosure. The Supernatural Germanium’s
complement of Volume, Tone, Presence,
Boost, and Fuzz controls provides lots of
ways to adjust the sound, making it easy
to get smooth, full-bodied grind.
The Supernatural Germanium’s Tone
control adds low-end girth when turned
left of center or high-frequency bite when
dialed the opposite direction. With the Fuzz
set low and the Boost turned up, we set
the Tone at around 11 o’ clock and used
the Presence control to bring the high mids
into focus to get sweet, grinding tones from
a Victoria 1x12 combo; like it was being
hit with a vintage treble booster.
With a Les Paul plugged into the Supernatural
Germanium, feeding the clean
channel on a Fryette Memphis 30 combo,
the pedal yielded a fuzzier sustain with the
Volume maxed, the Fuzz control set fairly
high, and the Boost knob about halfway
up. Playing through the Memphis’ overdrive
channel with the gain set fairly low revealed a different side of the Supernatural Germanium,
as the Fuzz could be turned down with
the Boost level set near maximum to get a
heavy rock/metal distortion tone that was
still very dynamically responsive.
KUDOS Sounds cool for everything from vintage
Brit blues to classic rock and metal.
CONCERNS No adapter jack.
