A uniquely abrasive effect that goes from garage-rock distortion to full-on velcro-ripping fuzz.

London, U.K. (June 2, 2015) -- Fredric Effects are proud to announce the new Foxrite MkII fuzz pedal. The Foxrite is a modernised version of the late '60s Silicon Mosrite Fuzzrite. It is an exact reconstruction of the original circuit, improved with the addition of a boost stage to bring the volume up to modern expectations. The Foxrite is a uniquely abrasive effect - offering sounds from garagey distortion to full-on octavey, velcro-ripping fuzz.

The Foxrite MkII features a central slider switch, labeled 'Rite' and 'Rong'. This adds greatly to the versatility of the effect. The 'Rite' setting is the vintage correct Fuzzrite circuit, whereas the 'Rong' mode is another popular variation on the Fuzzrite. In this mode, the two gain stages of the circuit are kept in series, and the 'Depth' control acts more like a conventional tone control - from doomy bass to raspy, spitting treble.

The Foxrite is priced at £95 RRP. It is available direct from Fredric Effects and from selected shops and online retailers.

The pedal features higher gain, lower leakage Russian Germanium transistors, and a low pass filter.

London, UK (September 9, 2014) -- The Utility Perkolator is our latest version of the fabled Interfax Harmonic Percolator from the 1970s. The Harmonic Percolator is a simple yet fascinating circuit which readily lends itself to tweaking and improvement. We already build a faithfully vintage correct version of the Harmonic Percolator, however the Utility Perkolator takes this circuit in another direction. Using higher gain, lower leakage Russian Germanium transistors, and a low pass filter which only removes the high-end hisses and glitches associated with the HP, the Utility Perkolator has a considerably lower noise floor. The result is a tighter and more controllable effect which is still capable of producing the classic Harmonic Percolator sound.

Available in attractive 'cold war cream' with black screen printed artwork featuring the Berlin TV Tower.
