No, it’s not a flower, and no, it’s not made in Germany. Chances are, you’d have to be ancient like us to remember the days of olde when Germanium transistors were the guts of the early pedals. And when we’re not yelling at kids to get off the lawn, we’re sitting around talking about the sounds of yesteryear, and what made it special. Well, now we’re talking about your generation, and you too can get that same blistering sound. You’ll need to tweak this pedal a bit to find all the sounds – the Voltage knob gives you a range between 3 and 9 volts, allowing for a wide spectrum of sound; the Bias controls the current headed to the transistor while the Gain knob determines how much signal goes there. So you get to play mad scientist here, fiddle with the knobs, and finally scream, “It’s alive!” And tell those kids to get off the lawn while you’re at it.
