The Duality blends two different fuzz sounds, a thick high-gain tone and a classic saw-tooth sound.

Seattle, WA (December 11, 2013) -- Designed in Helsinki Finland, built in Seattle USA the Duality Fuzz brings two completely different fuzz characters.

Our signature Duality knob allows for selecting and blending between a classic sounding, saw-tooth shape shifting circuit and a high gain, thick and brutal one. You can use them individually or blend them for a wide selection of crazy and wild textures and voicings.

Controls:

  • Level: Sets the output volume of the affected signal.
  • Blend: Mixes the clean with the fuzz signal. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the processed one is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine control of the blend ratio.
  • Duality: Selects and mixes the fuzz circuits. Set it counter clock wise for the old school saw-tooth shaping circuit, turn it fully clock wise for the modern, high gain one.
  • Filter: Use this variable LPF (low pass filter) to cut or bring up the high harmonic content. Great for fine tuning the perfect amount of presence and edge.

The Duality Fuzz is currently available from all Darkglass worldwide retailers. At a M.A.P. of USD $249.00 - €195.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
