Red Witch Pedals Unveils the Fuzz God IV

The tweakable fuzz is built upon dual silicon BC109 transistors.

New Zealand (September 24, 2020) -- We are delighted to introduce ... the most dial-able fuzz on the planet.

Dual NOS Silicon BC109 transistor Fuzz featuring the crazed switchable oscillation of Fuzz God II's "Wrath" coupled to a germanium diode Octavia and finally rounded off with an internal 8 way DIP switch allowing for 264 different tone and gain combinations. There's not a lot the Fuzz God IV cannot do.

Preorder the Fuzz God IV now and receive free express tracked shipping via DHL anywhere in the world. Units will ship on Friday the 3rd of October, when the pre-sale ends. The first batch of these pedals will be limited to to 150 pieces , each hand assembled, numbered and signed by Ben Fulton.

Features:

  • 3 tiered foot-switches control effect engage (left hand), Octavia (centre) and wrath oscillation (right).

  • Sputter control allowing direct control of transistor bias - clockwise for smooth, silken fuzz, counterclockwise for gated, sputtery angst.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
