Greer Amps Anounces the Super Hornet

A fire-breathing octave fuzz based around NOS BC-107B transistors.

Athens, GA (June 27, 2016) -- Carrying forward the momentum from last year’s Summer NAMM “Best In Show” buzz, Greer Amps has released an octave fuzz monster, the Super Hornet.

The Super Hornet has been a long time in the making…at least in Nick’s mind. Based on one very special Foxx Tone Machine in Nick’s collection, this pedal is a shop favorite when it comes to fuzz and anything octave. We took the basic building blocks of the vintage circuit, tweaked it, put a little bit of special sauce in the design by using NOS BC-107B transistors, and threw an added feature in the mix. You’ll notice that there is an octave toggle, like on the vintage units, that these pedals are styled after but that’s not just a straight-forward on/off toggle. When the toggle is in stinger mode, the momentary stinger switch becomes active. You can simply stand on the momentary switch to engage the octave for a lead run, then come off of the stinger switch to return to normal fuzz, or even tap the switch, to flutter the octave on and off. When the toggle is in octave mode, the fuzz is permanently an octave fuzz, and the stinger switch is not active. The fuzz control goes from light fuzz with some clean to raging wall of fuzz tones. The tone control is a wide sweep tone control. All in all, this pedal is a perfect addition to any guitar or BASS player’s tone arsenal. The octave even works in low fuzz settings!

Features:

  • NOS BC-107B transistors
  • Based on a classic rock machine
  • Light fuzz to aggressive, wall of fuzz tones
  • Stinger switch that allows for momentary octave when the fuzz is engaged
  • True bypass
  • Uses a standard neg. center, 2.1mm power supply
  • Lifetime Warranty to the original owner

The Super Hornet is now shipping to dealers for immediate purchase at a MAP of $225.99.

Rig Rundown: Wolf Alice's Joff Oddie

Joff Oddie shows PG his own Jag-Master creation and then plasters it with pedals bending (and distorting) space and time.

Listening to the tidal wave in “Giant Peach,” the riotous “Moaning Lisa Smile,” or the punked-up “Play the Greatest Hits,” it’s hard to imagine Wolf Alice as an acoustic duo. Then talk to Joff Oddie about his integral use of effects—“These pedals can do such crazy things; to not do crazy things with things that can do crazy things seems odd”—and the band’s origin story becomes even more improbable. But it’s true: Wolf Alice started with guitarist/singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Oddie playing acoustic-folk music during open-mic nights in North London pubs.
