A distortion pedal that aims to cop tones that go from ragged crunch to blown out, bludgeoning fuzz.

Durham, NC (September 11, 2018) -- Dusky Electronics is proud to announce the newest addition to its award-winning pedal lineup, the Hypatia. From singing, sustaining fuzz and distortion at one extreme, to crunchy, textured overdrive at the other, the Hypatia is a versatile overdrive/fuzz that produces a wide range of gain adaptable to a variety of musical contexts

The Hypatia continues Dusky Electronics’ tradition of designing gear that both pays respect to the past and offers something new. “I spent the better part of a year nailing down this design,” says Chris Rossi, owner of Dusky Electronics and designer of the Hypatia. “It was important to me that it be versatile, sound great, and be musically useful—just like my other designs.”

The Hypatia features:

  • A wide gain range
  • An adjustable low end that can be tailored for any instrument across a range of musical styles
  • Specially designed input buffer allowing for flexible placement in signal chain
  • MOSFET-based output buffer that adds amp-like flavor and complements the pedal's ragged, transistor-based core
  • Operation from 9–18V power supplies

The Hypatia retails for $180 and ​can be purchased online at duskyamp.com or locally at select dealers.

We're getting close to the end of our journey. We've aged most of the metal parts on our project guitar, so now let's take care of the output jack, knobs, back plate, and pickguard.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month, we'll continue with the aging process of our Harley Benton DC-Junior project guitar (which is a copy of a 1958 Les Paul Junior Double Cut), taking a closer look at the pickguard while aging the rest of the hardware discussed in the last part of this series ["DIY Relic'ing: Harley Benton DC-Junior Electronics"]. If you need a refresher on our aging process for hardware, refer back to "DIY Relic'ing: Break the Shine" for guidance. You can see the parts we'll be discussing today in their "finished" form, aka relic'd, in Photo 1.
