We use a refrigerator and the hot summer sun to see if this pedal’s Active Bias Monitor makes it one of the coolest germanium fuzzes on the market.

Jaw-dropping array of germanium-flavored fuzz and drive tones, recallable more consistently than perhaps any other germanium fuzz on the market. Robust build.

None.

Drives a cab, drives an amp, sounds awesome!

A beautifully handwired mini amp that injects juicy tube tones into an amp or cabinet with a surprisingly broad range of uses. High quality.

Cleaner mode I setting can feel flat without an overdrive pedal.

Already acclaimed for tube combo amps and their eponymous fuzz pedal, Sacramento-based Silktone recently released the clever Micronaut, a cuddly micro-amp with many more performance possibilities and range than its size or simplicity suggests. Despite the blocky dimensions and funky radio-age looks, the 9" x 7.5" x 6", 6 1/2-pound box houses a genuine tube amp, with tubes in both preamp and output slots. A single 12AX7 drives the former, while a single EL84 in the latter delivers approximately 4 watts of power. Coolest of all, perhaps, is you can use the Micronaut as an amp head, as a DI to your DAW or PA, or as a preamp to drive an amplifier.
