Astrolcious. Myth. Legend. Unknown. Okay, sort of known. The Astrotone was a fuzz box made in the late 60's by Sam Ash. It had a couple of different versions. It's not a very interesting circuit. Has a couple of rando silicon transistors, some clipping diodes, and a pretty cruddy tone control and comparatively weak output. There are some decent clones/upgrades out there, but Spruce and Dirge hooked up to turn it into one of the most versatile distort-o-boxes around. V1 was a huge success, but we spruced things up a bit for V2. There is a spicy Germanium gainstage slamming the front or back end of the main circuit with 7 super-powerful controls. Nothing else like it on Earth...that we know of. Each pedal was hand painted and engraved by Dirge and built/assembled by Spruce Effects. #20 is not for sale but will be up for auction at some point in the future to benefit cancer research.
We always recommend isolated power supplies. If you daisy chain effects on one supply or use a low-quality product, you may inject noise, ripple, ground loop hum, etc. This effect requires 9v, center negative power. In other words, the industry standard power supply. Current draw: really low.
