60s buzz tones and beyond…
The Buzzard takes you on a fuzzy flight from wasp-like buzzes to thick and greasy fuzzes. Two NOS germanium transistors lie at the heart of this bird. Each transistor serves up its own flavour: the first, a dark and thick boost; the second, a super bright and buzzy full-on fuzz. These two sounds blend together with the BUZZ control, then the CONTOUR control sculpts both high and mid-range content of the tone. Two simple controls, coupled with the VOLUME, can create classic Fuzzrite, 60s bite; pseudo octave effects; fuzzy filtered wah like sounds; dense, chewy distortion and much more…
- Hand selected NOS Germanium transistors
- CITEC potentiometers
- Carbon film resistors
- Neutrik jack sockets
- Heavy duty foot switch
BUZZ – Blends between the two fuzz sounds.
CONTOUR – Low pass filter that adjusts the high and mid-range content of the second (super bright) fuzz sound. Fully CCW is the darkest sound; fully CW the brightest. As the CONTOUR knob affects only the second fuzz sound, it has a greater effect when the BUZZ control is set past half way.
LEVEL – Sets the overall output level.
POWER: A standard 9 volt DC regulated power supply with a 2.1mm negative tip barrel plug or a 9 volt PP3 battery. If you intend on sharing the same powers supply with other pedals, please ensure it is one with isolated outputs. DO NOT DAISY CHAIN WITH NEGATIVE GROUNDED PEDALS: THIS MAY DAMAGE YOUR POWER SUPPLY OR BUZZARD.
CURRENT DRAW: 3mA
DIMENSIONS (including knobs and jacks): 120x80x60mm
