In 1971, Mike Matthews' Big Muff Pi sparked a revolution in fuzz. Thick, creamy, and sustaining, but well-behaved and more amp-like rather than buzzy.
The Skreddy 1971 pedal combines the same elements of the early "triangle knob" BMP, like carbon comp resistors, ceramic capacitors, and 2N5133* transistors, into a design that has its gain pulled back just a bit. This allows the distortion to retain a balance of tightness and openness and a much more amp-like feel as opposed to an overwhelming liquid fuzz character.
The effect is positively addictive! And hard to classify exactly. It's not an all-out fuzz so much as a distortion reminiscent of a cranked Laney or Mesa Boogie with plenty of sustain and a very chord-friendly gain structure.
Regular 9v negative ground, no special power requirements. 9v battery is not included. If you use a battery, then remember to un-plug the input cable from the pedal’s input jack when not in use to prevent draining (or you can also just plug in a power-supply, which disconnects the battery).
You may supply external power through an AC adapter. All Skreddy Pedals accept the industry-standard 9v DC plug (5.5mm barrel x 2.1mm center coax), negative tip. Please use a quality, regulated, filtered power supply.
