Christian Lessenich or Chris Jupiter as many know him is one of the great sonic adventurers out there - forever seeking to break new boundaries and go further than man has gone before. His challenge on this occasion was to produce an explosively nasty / gnarly fuzz - which he has achieved in part through a clever evolution of the Super Fuzz circuit and using some really high gain Russian NOS transistors.

 

You have 4 controls on the pedal - wide-ranging Volume, Gain and Tone knobs, alongside a Diode Clipping Switch.

 

"Disabling the diode switch results in a wholly more aggressive gated fuzz, with a raw, compressed and mid-focused character. The diodes also provide an increase in volume, making the fuzz feel nearly twice as big. Engaging the diodes adds singing sustain and a very organic, dynamic breakup."

 

The Tone knob ranges from complete mid scoop to full mid hump. While there are 3 additional internal trim-pots to fine-tune the pedal further. An Upper Octave control - making the fuzz more like an Octafuzz, then thee is a 16dB boost control, and lastly a dry blend.

 

I’m a huge fuzz fan, and I like the raucous ones just as much as the more subtle and tuneful germanium ones. This is certainly down on the wishlist for acquisition. It seems to be currently priced at around £135 and has a shipping date of early February.

 

I should also bring attention to Fjord Fuzz’s exceptional Gjallarhorn - which is another suitably insane next-level noisy take on the Super Fuzz circuit - it sound to me very much like an exceedingly loud, distorted foghorn!
