A modern take on a classic fuzz created in collaboration with Yoo Doo Right.
In collaboration with the Montreal band 'Yoo Doo Right', Mile End Effects is thrilled to release of the special limited edition "Don't Think You Can Escape Your Purpose" fuzz/preamp. The new effect pays homage to everyone's favorite Japanese octave fuzz from the 1970s: the Univox Super Fuzz.
The iconic Univox fuzz was used heavily by Yoo Doo Right during the recording sessions for their first LP, "Don't Think You Can Escape Your Purpose", so it was fitting to recreate it with a few extra tone shaping and boost options as a celebration of the official release of the LP.
In addition to the standard and very aggressive Univox Super Fuzz sound, Mile End Effects implemented a switchable active Baxandall Tone Stack, EQ and PreAmp offering 12dB of boost or cut in the tone controls as well as up to a 24dB boost in output volume (controllable via an internal trim pot).
A common complaint with the original Super Fuzz is a perceived volume drop when the effect is engaged. This is due to a sudden shift in frequency response, which often amounts to "getting lost in the mix". This concern has been rectified with these added tone and boost options and sounds every bit as wonderful as you would expect.
The new Mile End Effects pedal features four knobs and two toggle switches. The Expand knob controls the amount of fuzz, exactly as in the original Univox. The Balance knob controls overall volume. The Treble and Bass knobs are active Baxandall equalizer controls that can be used for boosting or rolling off tone, and they can be bypassed entirely by the EQ switch. The Tone Switch toggle, faithful to the original Univox, scoops key midrange frequency.

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.
