The Bipolar Fuzz features two discrete circuits which can be combined.

Torrance, CA (December 3, 2013) -- As an addition to the company’s highly regarded line of hand-made pedals, Majik Box will begin shipping the new Bipolar Fuzz, dual mode fuzz pedal this week.

Offering a multitude fuzz flavors, coming from two discrete circuits, the Bipolar Fuzz features both Majik Box’s representation of classic fuzz, replicating sounds found on numerous recordings from the late sixties through the nineties to a unique sounding extreme fuzz, delivering otherworldly textures and tones. The two distinct sides can be used individually or together for even more fuzz mayhem.

A proto-type Bipolar Fuzz was used extensively on Korn’s latest release, Paradigm Shift, as well as Marty Friedman’s upcoming 2014 solo release, Inferno.

Specs:

  • Two discrete fuzz circuits which can be combined for a third, unique fuzz sound.
  • Lo-Fi switch on the extreme fuzz circuit for additional “sputtering” and “burping.”
  • True Bypass Operation.
  • Hand-wired and hand-built in Torrance, CA

Street Price: $269.99.

After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.

This past Sunday I awoke to a very un-Sunday sensation. Hovering on the edge of consciousness, as yet still incapable of contemplating what Sunday mornings are for (lounging in bed till coffee’s made and lunch plans are set, of course!), I was suddenly struck by a godawful stench.

Then I tasted the putrescence. Then … nothing.
