(Zero left) Ran out of PCB boards and they wont be here till next week. At that time I’ll finish that last one up and ship it to Doug T.

Our most popular pedal but with vintage dome transistors. In this variant the audio path contains 5 vintage dome 2n3565 transistors from approximately the 1970s. Tried to get an exact date but info on the origins of these are scarce. These same transistors have been used for some classic vintage fuzz face pedals. But please remember this pedal is not a fuzz face.
The vintage dome transistors give the pedal a “smoother sound”. Thats the only way I can describe it. Same great character and dynamics but “different”. Sporting the limited edition artwork, this will be a short run while transistor supply lasts.
I have a couple now ready to go now. If the first few go please allow a day or two before shipping as we sometimes build on demand. Stock is limited.
Things I personally enjoy about Electron Fuzz (EFC) 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 in erratic ways
- Can make drums sound aggressive and distorted without being “Hurty”
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.
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.
