WHORES. Fuzz Freq V.2

The Fuzz Freq is two effects in one. The Fuzz Freq is a gnarly 80's Russian germanium transistor fuzz and a wah style filter that can be used together or separately.

The rad thing about this is that you can switch which effect runs into the other. Toggle switch to the left and you've got fuzz into filter. Switch to the right and its filter into fuzz.
Separate foot switches for the fuzz and frequency filter, controls for fuzz, filter frequency, volume, gate and clean boost.
Used on the songs "Playing Poor" "Baby Teeth" and "Participation Trophy" from the "GOLD." record.

Specs:
4.7″ x 3.7″ x 1.18″ enclosure, true bypass switching, common 9vdc center negative 2.1mm BOSS style power input. Current draw ?mA. Power supply not included.
