The Fuzzy Feeling design is based around the Colorsound ToneBender MK11 Professional
with a few tweaks from us. It uses three PNP NOS gain selected germanium transistors
to provide the classic Fuzz effect of the 60s and 70s. Three transistors are used
instead of just two as in most designs, this means that a lot more gain is generated
as well as a totally saturated Fuzz tone. The Fuzzy Feeling is totally hand build
using a high quality PCB and point to point methods, it is built to last. The result
is instant Hendrix and Page, just add talent!
The Fuzzy Feeling is fitted with a PP3 9v battery but also has a 2.1mm external PSU
adaptor for use with a 9v @ 200mA external supply.
Important –the external supply must be negative centre, which means positive outer.
This is because the PNP transistors require a negative supply so you must use a separate
external supply from your other effects pedals which are normally negative outer.
The external PSU and the battery both have reverse polarity protection so no harm
will be done if you get it wrong.
The supply is connected automatically to the circuit when you plug in your guitar,
so don’t forget to unplug in when not in use or the battery will go flat!
The controls are very simple, Level, Fuzz Attack and By-pass. The led indicates when
the effect is on.
Level sets the output level of the effect to your amplifier, there is a fair amount
of gain as well as fuzz so it will overdrive your amplifiers input if you set it
high enough which will generate even more distortion. Push it really hard and great
feedback fuzz effects are possible.
Fuzz Attack adjusts the attack of the waveform, it allows the user to select smoother
Fuzz with greater sustain.
The By-pass foot switch provides true by-pass of the effect.
So, just plug your guitar into the jack with the guitar drawing and your amplifier
into the jack with the amp drawing and you are off and running!
The pedal is covered for any parts and labour required to repair it should it go
wrong within 12mths of purchase. This does not cover misuse of the product but we
will be happy to repair this at cost as we will for any units which fail outside
of the 12mths. The owner of a faulty pedal will pay all the postage costs.
