Ananashead Effects Announces the Mark2

Adding to his line of vintage fuzzboxes, Ananashead has announced the MARK2, a three germanium transistor benderish fuzz.


The MARK2 is a hand-made pedal based on the second generation of 3-transistor boxes from the mid-sixties akin to those used by Jimmy Page. With a great amount of saturated gain, the MARK2 is equipped with an external bias to deliver bender tones, bringing the chance to remove hiss, add sustain, get better cleans with volume roll off or get sputtery and gated tones.

Features


  • Selected NOS germanium transistors
  • Three knobs to control Level, Attack and Bias
  • Shielded inputs/outputs to avoid RF
  • Filtered and protected 9VDC input
  • Daisy-chain friendly
  • Popless True Bypass switching
  • Current draw: 7.5mA

The MARK2 pedal is hand-made in Barcelona with careful selected components and has a price of 110.00€. The pedals are available and can be purchased directly from the Ananashead online store at https://www.ananashead.com.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
