We linked up with Soul City Sound, a great retailer in Pennsylvania about a year ago to embark on a fuzzy journey with a circuit we didn't have a tone of experience with. The President of Soul City Sound, Ben, approached us about a possible custom pedal. We normally turn down those requests, but his passion for the fuzzrite circuit and our shared sensibilities for tone shaping while retaining the vintage character of classic pedals got us hooked. We made multiple prototypes, tried many transistors, modificaitons, got feedback, and landed on this beast. Excalibur!
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.
