Video: SolidGoldFX Funkzilla Envelope Filter and Rosie Fuzz Demos

SolidGoldFX's Funkzilla Envelope Filter isn't a new addition to the brand's catalog of high–quality, handmade stompboxes. In fact, it's one of the company's most popular circuits, whose success has inspired the smaller, less expensive Funk–Lite.

The Funkzilla is a fully featured envelope filter with a variety of knobs and switches for endless tweakability. But what's specifically cool about it is the tap tempo function.

Flip the rightmost toggle switch from env to tap, and tap out your tempo with the left footswitch. Then, subdivide that tapped tempo using the rhythmic pattern toggle switch on the left to switch between one, two, and four.

This kind of dynamic functionality is what really sets the Funkzilla apart from other popular offerings, like EHX's Q–Tron.

The Rosie is another popular legacy pedal from SolidGoldFX. It's SGFX's modern interpretation of the famed MK II Tone Bender. In this update, the germanium transistors are ditched for a combo of JFET and select low–gain, low–noise silicon transistors.

It's a simple and straightforward fuzz, providing players with that vintage Led Zeppelin crunch in an economical package. Use it on the normal setting or switch it to bass reduction for plenty of mid–range punch.
