FORMULA B Fuzz Rangers

£175.00

Legendary Boost & Fuzz In One Pedal!

The Formula B Fuzz Rangers takes two iconic circuits and encloses them in a beautifully finished chassis, with vintage-style controls. With the option to run the Fuzz or Boost independently, it's an incredibly flexible pedal for your pedalboard, but where it gets interesting is that there's a toggle to set the direction of the signal. You can choose whether to run the Boost into the Fuzz, or vice-versa. The results differ dramatically...

Fuzz

The Fuzz circuit is based on the silicon Fuzz Face, using a pair of NOS military-spec BC108 transistors and carbon-layer resistors. It sounds great on its own, and reacts really nicely to your guitar's volume pot - as Fuzz Faces do. Running the Fuzz into the Boost gets you a clearer tone with plenty of gain to push your amp, showcasing all that lovely Fuzz Face breakup.

Boost

The Boost circuit is based on the Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster, with silicon BC549 transistors to reduce compatibility problems (polarity, power etc) with the Fuzz circuit. Uniquely, there's a toggle switch to shift the Boost emphasis between Low, Mid and High frequencies, making it more flexible than a traditional Rangemaster. Running the Boost into the Fuzz saturates the input of the Fuzz Face and gets you a rich, warm, super-fuzzy character which responds well to how you set the EQ toggle.

More than simply for fans of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, this pedal will serve you well with its vintage vibe and tonal flexibility.

Features:

  • Dual-channel pedal with independent Fuzz and Boost circuits.
  • NOS BC108 transistors and carbon-layer resistors on the Fuzz side.
  • Silicon-based Rangemaster circuit on the Boost side for greater compatibility with the Fuzz.
  • Effects Order toggle switch enables you to run the Fuzz into the Boost, or the Boost into the Fuzz when both channels are activated.
  • EQ toggle allows you to emphasise Low, Mid or High frequencies on the Boost side.
  • Handmade in Todi, Italy
  • Fuzz, Level, Boost, EQ toggle & Effects Order toggle controls
  • Power: 9V power supply, centre-negative (not included)
  • Current draw: 10mA

FORMULA B Vintage Vibe Mk2

£199.00

So Addictive!

The Formula B Vintage Vibe Mk2 is a superb homage to the original 'Leslie-in-a-pedal', the Uni-Vibe. It's one of those memorable and highly addictive effects, up there with fuzz in terms of the character it endows songs with. 

Most famously used by Jimi Hendrix during his Woodstock set and live Band Of Gypsys album, as well as by David Gilmour on Pink Floyd tracks such as 'Breathe', and Robin Trower on his Bridge Of Sighs album, the Uni-Vibe is all over late-1960s and early '70s rock.

The Formula B Vintage Vibe Mk2 sounds phenomenal with its fully discrete, analogue signal path. Made with original THT BC549 and 2Sc1815 transistors and quality photoresistors, plus an internal voltage doubler giving 18V of power, this is capable of achieving seriously chewy, organic chorus and vibrato effects with plenty of headroom.

Like the original, the Vintage Vibe Mk2 has a Volume control that allows you to achieve unity gain with the rest of your setup. You can even use it to boost your amp or other pedals - there's plenty of volume gain on tap.

Chorus/Vibrato toggle

With the toggle in the Chorus position you get the full Uni-Vibe experience. With the toggle in the Vibrato position you get out of tune pitch-bend vibrato.

Dual footswitch

The dual-footswitch design allows you to set Speed 1 and Speed 2 and access them on-the-fly. A typical setup would be to use a slower speed for rhythm playing then kick in a faster speed for solos.

Features:

  • Analogue chorus/vibrato based on the Uni-Vibe
  • Dual-speed operation with two separate footswitches
  • Old-stock transistors and high quality photoresistors
  • 9V to 18V internal voltage doubler
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)
  • Current draw: 100-150mA

FREDRIC EFFECTS Golden Eagle

£125.00

The Ultimate Klon Klone?

The Fredric Effects Golden Eagle is a single-pedal sized recreation of the Klon Centaur, with completely accurate electronics built to the highest specification.

Just like the Klon Centaur, it features the internal buffer and charge pump, making the Golden Eagle the perfect pedal for three tasks on your pedalboard:

  1. Buffer - Use the Golden Eagle's high quality buffer to maximise the signal capacitance and resistance of your signal path, getting the most from your other pedals (there's a great That Pedal Show video on this topic, demonstrated using a Klon Centaur)
  2. Clean Boost - Use the Golden Eagle to condition your tone, running it at low gain and unity volume. Subtle but effective tone improvements.
  3. Overdrive - Turn the gain up to drive your amp into beautifully organic break up.

Just like Fredric Effects' other pedals, the build quality is exceptional, with a folded steel chassis featuring perfectly bevelled corners. It's the small touches that count!

Features:

  • 100% accurate recreation of the Klon Centaur
  • High quality internal buffer
  • Internal charge pump converts 9V to 18V for more headroom
  • Handmade in London, UK
  • Gain, Output & Treble controls
  • Power: 9V centre-negative or 9V battery (neither included)

BAD PENNY FX Wireless

£150.00

Built To Order...

The Bad Penny FX Wireless is a germanium fuzz with flexible switching to ensure you always get the best tones.

Crank everything to achieve high gain, ripping fuzz tones, or disengage the Gate and Bass switches, pull down the Fuzz knob to minimum and your tone will be sweet and mellow. Being a vintage germanium circuit, it is highly responsive to your guitar volume.

Gate

The gate switch controls how much signal is passed to the third transistor. By default it passes the full signal for plenty of gain, but switching it on reduces the signal and therefore gain, for a cleaner fuzz tone.

There is an internal trim pot that allows you to adjust how much signal is passed when Gate is engaged, 

Bass

The bass switch removes the lowest frequencies for a clearer, brighter sound.

Please note: The Bad Penny FX Wireless is built to order. Please allow around 7 days build time plus shipping time.

Features:

  • Germanium fuzz with select vintage components
  • English ash hardwood and aluminium enclosure
  • True bypass
  • Handmade in East-Sussex, UK
  • Fuzz, Tone, Master, Gate & Bass controls
  • Power: 9V power supply, centre-negative (not included)

Boost & Overdrive Pedals Collection Banner | Boost Guitar Pedals

Boost & Overdrive Pedals

Boost and overdrive pedals were originally designed to push tube amps of the day into full-blown saturation, that just cranking the amps to full volume couldn't achieve - this was before high-gain amps existed and many amps were only capable of achieving crunch tones without help from boost or overdrive pedals.

There are many different 'flavours' of boost and overdrive these days: the more subtle designs add a touch of hair or grit, ideal for bluesy breakup, while others have more punch for a heavier or more harmonically rich sound. Some, such as the famed Klon Centaur, are renowned for their transparency, while others such as the Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster deliberately boost particular frequencies.

Distortion Pedals

Distortion pedals provide a new tonal palette for your amp, hard-clipping the input signal to achieve distorted sounds. Many guitarists use a distortion with a clean amp setting.

Distortion pedals span a huge range of sounds, from classic rock tones through to modern metal, plus everything in between.

Fuzz Pedals Collection | Boost Guitar Pedals

Fuzz Pedals

Fuzz pedals first appeared in the 1960s and soon became popular thanks to links with guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards and Pete Townshend.

From the first few pedals, including the Maestro FZ-1 Fuzz Tone and the Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face, a multitude of fuzz pedals now exists - some are accurate replicas of these illustrious forebears while others are completely new designs.
