    A special one-off MK1.6 Germanium Fuzz in Hammered Pewter Heavy Relic.  This pedal features aged hardware, premium components and a pair of NOS OC45 and OC75 black glass transistors. 

     

    This pedal is battery only and has an on/off switch which disconnects the battery while cables are still plugged in (removing the input lead disconnects the battery too).

     

    The MK 1.6 Fuzz is a hand crafted effect pedal based on classic fuzz circuits of the mid-60s. The closest ancestors are the fabled 'MK 1.5' Tone Bender and Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face. This model includes a few added touches to enhance playability in the modern world.

     

    The circuit is built upon a custom made board with the highest quality components and an obsessive attention to detail.  Each Pedal is built by hand, one at a time, and individually voiced to optimize its specially selected pair of transistors. This means no two pedals are exactly the same - they all have unique attributes and components are chosen to enhance the sonic qualities of each circuit.

     

    The controls are simple but highly effective - 'Attack' dials up the fuzz and 'Level' sets the overall output of the effect, which ranges from soft to sonic destruction. The MK 1.6 is designed to provide a high level of output when desired and is capable of a significant volume boost - this fuzz will not disappear in the mix when engaged.

     

    Raising the level also hits the input of your amp harder and interacts with tube preamp stages to produce beautiful overtones and a wide range of overdrive and distortion tones through to raging fuzz. The pedal provides a vast tonal palette to play with and subtle changes in pick attack and tweaks to your guitar's volume and tone controls offer up unlimited avenues for expression.

     

    The Gain Mode switch provides three separate gain settings for the pedal. Low is a boost setting with Med and High progressively adding more gain and fuzz. Lower gain is also a tad brighter, high is fat and juicy. Each setting imparts its own special character and greatly adds to the versatility of the pedal in response to different musical situations, guitars, amps etc. Wherever you set it, be prepared for scintillating boosted fuzz tones!

    All pedals come complete with a custom carry bag, signed and numbered certificate of authenticity and instruction card.
