KNOBS Gain, Bias, Volts, Volume (Distortion side). Gain, Bias, Tone Volume (Overdrive side)

SOUNDS Independent fuzz and overdrive circuits can be used separately or combined to create virtually any fuzz or distortion texture you desire. The Distortion (fuzz) side’s Volts control sweeps the tones from “dig my broken pedal” spittiness to rich, singing sustain, while the Overdrive channel’s Bias knob delivers ballsy, dynamic rock distortion, or lets you preset a tight volume boost that’ll ensure your solos cut through the band like a Ginsu knife.

WHO’S IT FOR? Rock players, metal players, and fuzz sickos who don’t mind allocating a little extra ’board space for what is essentially two great pedals for one great price.
