Option 5 Unveils Destination Square Tone Fuzz Pedal

The long awaited addition to Option 5’s pedal line-up is finally here in the form of a caution yellow trapezoid stomp box with four knobs.

Mishwawka, IN (March 21, 2013) -- The long awaited addition to Option 5’s pedal line-up is finally here in the form of a caution yellow trapezoid stomp box with four knobs. Official release date is March 27 th.

The Destination Square Tone was born out of love for classic fuzz pedals. Wanting to avoid the obvious pitfalls of old technology and the crankiness of hard to find germanium transistors, Jay set out to design a fuzz pedal that delivers consistent, uncompromising tones. He also wanted to make a pedal that looked nothing like the current Option 5 pedals. That pedal has definitely arrived in the Destination Square Tone.

The Destination Square Tone is priced at $199.95 and can be purchased through many fine dealers worldwide.

Specs:

  • Classic fuzz tones from smooth and buttery to rubber-bandy, spit and sputter chaos
  • Repeatable and consistent classic fuzz tone
  • Runs on DC or battery – also has SAG control for dead battery feel
  • True bypass and hand crafted in the USA

Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.

Oh no—it finally happened! Now the big question: How long before my verve for guitar recovers from Covid?

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. As one does, I wrinkled up my nose, lifted my head to look around in disgust, and took a couple more sniffs to see if … I don’t know—maybe I’d dreamt it? Or woke up incontinent? Then I tasted the putrescence. Then … nothing.

Fuuuuuuuck.
