Hot Fuzzy Octopus
I did a repair on a Fuzz Factory pedal and decided I had to try building one. Katharine Andrews and I teamed up on this project. She did the painting, and I did the wiring. In the spirit of my hand wired amps, i tried to make this as clean as possible as I believe lead dress really has a effect on tone. Running wires as close to the grounded metal chassis as possible protects the signal from interference.
This pedal is totally wild. It does crazy things! I added a tone control and some other low pass filtering to warm up the sound. Alongside the original, we agreed this one sounds better.
This was just a one off, but several people have requested i make them one. So, I'm going to be making a few of these.
Katharine will hand paint each one with a slightly unique finish.
