A handwired octave-fuzz featuring Wilma capacitors.

New Zealand (May 1, 2020) -- Following on from their first two limited run pedals: the Ophelia and the Concordia, New Zealand-based effects company Red Witch have partnered with Reverb.com to bring you Seraphina, the brand new, handmade fuzz octave up pedal featuring four germanium diodes, through hole components and Wima capacitors.

Built the old way. By Hand. In New Zealand. By Ben Fulton.

A fuzz pedal unlike any that Red Witch has offered before.

Seraphina has three external, top side mounted dials controlling Fuzz, Tone and Volume. Two footswitches allow the user to engage the pedal and the incendiary octave up.

From a leviathanic wall of fuzz to a more classic vintage feel, the fuzz control allows users access to a multitude of fuzz experiences.

From incredibly searing, laser beam tones, to the bass heavy “American Woman” sound, the tone control offers a broad range of ultra useful frequency modification.

Two internal trim pots allows users to dial the tone in even more. The first sets the flavor of octave up. From a truly piercing, singing sound to a conglomerate blend of octave and fundamental fuzz tone, this special bias control is a totally unique feature. The Second trim, allows the user to set the overall fuzz girth.

Seraphina is truebypass and finished in vintage cream powder coat. She runs exclusively from a DC 9v wallwart power supply.

Only available on Reverb. Limited first offering of only 100 pieces. Only available for a very limited time.

Available from the Red Witch Reverb store from 10am, 1st May, C.S.T. USA.
