Skreddy Pedals Announces the Kusanagi
Patterned after the synthy, frizzy fuzz tones that Jimmy Page used in the Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin.
Roseville, CA (June 11, 2015) -- Always a huge fan of Led Zeppelin, Skreddy creator, Marc Ahlfs, has built his share of historically-accurate Tone Bender clones using rare old Mullard transistors. But not having a steady supply of those antique parts and wanting to make the transition to modern, negative-ground power, Marc designed his own new version. The Skreddy Pedals Kusanagi has that special magic and occupies a rightful place in the Tone Bender pantheon. His new fuzz uses many of the same high-voltage part types you'll find in a historic specimen, including big axial capacitors and 1/2 Watt carbon composition resistors, and houses them in a big box (Hammond 1590BB) using a PCB layout that was inspired by the design of the 1960's perfboard units.
The Kusanagi represents a sort of departure for Skreddy Pedals; most of their fuzzes are highly refined and modernizedâ€”this one is raw and adheres to its primitive ancestral roots.
