My brother and I were talking on the phone a while back about different fuzz pedal architectures and somehow the idea of using a Schmitt trigger to produce fuzz came up. We weren't sure if it had been done before, but we figured it should sound pretty great and thought it would be worth trying out.

From the first prototype, we knew we were on to something. Crunchy and spicy, it just wanted to be played. Through several revisions, we were able to tame it into a useful and useable effect.

This fuzz pedal would be wildly inappropriate for “adding a little fuzz” to your sound. It is all-fuzz all-the-time. It does not, will not, and cannot “clean up” — nicely or otherwise. What it seems to excel at is splitting open skulls so they can be exposed to Universal Truth. And this is the principal purpose for which we recommend it.
