RAYGUN FX Vintage Booster

£40.00

Awesome Analogue Power

The Raygun FX Vintage Booster is a single-dial boost pedal that can add just a touch of meatiness to your core tone or push your valves into beautiful overdrive with +24dB of boost on tap.

Great as a clean or slightly dirty solo boost, the Vintage Booster looks and sounds like it belongs alongside some of those vintage amps we all revere. It has a beautifully organic character that's really addictive to play with.

Loosely based on the ZVEX Super Hard-On circuit, this boost is driven by a MOSFET transistor.

Raygun FX are based in Southend-On-Sea in the UK. High profile users of their pedals include Grant Nicholas of Feeder, Jez Williams of Doves, Tim Smith of Noel Gallaghers’ High Flying Birds, and Tim Wheeler of Ash.

Features:

GREENHOUSE EFFECTS Roots Fuzz

£79.00

Dual-Channel Muff-Style Fuzz

The Greenhouse Effects Roots Fuzz is the latest fuzz pedal from the Israel-based brand. The first in the new Roots range, its budget-conscious design forsakes the innovation and versatility of the flagship pedals for back-to-basics functionality with a twist...

DSS Switching

The Roots Fuzz is a dual-channel fuzz, using DSS (Dual Switching System) to access two separate channels as well as turn the effect on and off, with just one footswitch.

Loosely based on the Big Muff, the Roots Fuzz is an aggressive sounding pedal, with each channel having a distinctive voice:

Red Channel

More open sounding, smoother, with more headroom and a hint of upper octave at maximum gain.

Blue Channel

Darker, denser and more compressed, with plenty of sustain and bloom.

Tone Control

The Tone control is useable right through the range - Roy recommends trying it with the tone turned completely down.

Sustain Control

The Sustain control takes you from medium gain settings through to heavy distortion and then a wall of fuzz

Features:

  • Great value Big Muff-style fuzz pedal
  • Innovative DSS footswitch with dual-channel feature
  • Soft touch, silent switching
  • Volume, Tone & Sustain controls
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

    GREENHOUSE EFFECTS Roots Echo

    £79.00

    Superb Value Delay With Self-Oscillation...

    The Greenhouse Effects Roots Echo is a superb value analogue-style delay. Its delay time of up to 500ms takes you from straightforward slapback to ambient soundtracks with a near-endless trail of warm, lush repeats. 

    Back-to-basics functionality makes the Roots Echo a dream to use, but it gives a nod to the future with its innovative switching...

    DSS Switching

    The Roots Echo features DSS (Dual Switching System), which allows you to hold down the footswitch to activate the self-oscillation mode for some great ambient sounds. Release the footswitch and the self-oscillations gradually die out.

    Delay

    The Delay control adjusts the delay time, up to 500ms.

    Regen

    The Regen control adjusts the number of times your original signal is repeated. Each repeat degrades in fidelity, just like it would with an analogue delay. 

    Mix

    Adjust the dry to wet signal ratio with the Mix control. You can set the Mix high for a more upfront delay, or set it lower for a more subtle effect.

    Features:

    • Great value analogue-style delay pedal
    • 500ms max delay time
    • Innovative DSS footswitch with self-oscillation feature
    • Soft touch, silent switching
    • Delay, Regen & Mix controls
    • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

    RAYGUN FX Twin Fuel Driver

    £89.00

    Fatten Up Your Tone!

    The Raygun FX Twin Fuel Driver is a meaty dual-channel overdrive pedal. Although it has plenty of boost, there's slightly less gain on tap compared to the Dual Soda Drive+.

    You can use each channel independently or stack them for added oomph, with each featuring a toggle to switch between Boost and Dirty modes.

    There's plenty of girth here to fatten up your tone without obscuring your core sound, and stacking the channels can push your amp into singing sustain. And don't think this pedal is just for guitar - try it with bass too!

    Features:

    • Dual-channel overdrive pedal
    • Boost & Dirty mode toggle switch per channel
    • Drive, & Volume controls x2
    • True bypass
    • Handwired in the UK
    • Power: 9V DC, 100mA centre-negative (not included)

    £95.00

    Great Value Dual Channel Drive

    The Raygun FX Dual Soda Drive+ is a super-flexible drive pedal which ranges from boost to dense distortion. It combines two Soda Drive+ circuits in a single pedal, with the option to run each channel independently or stack them for more tonal variation.

    Both channels have a 3-way toggle switch, allowing you to select from Dirty, Boost (less gain, more volume) or Fuzz (a germanium diode) modes.

    Founder of Raygun FX, Steve has even added slightly different germanium diodes to each channel to give subtle variations in the Fuzz mode. 

     

    Handwired in Southend-On-Sea in the UK, it's easy to see why this is one of our most popular pedals: the Dual Soda Drive+ is a serious bit of kit at a great price!

    Features:

    • Dual-channel overdrive/distortion pedal
    • 3-way toggle for each channel: Boost, Drive & Fuzz
    • Non-identical germanium diodes give each channel a slightly different character in Fuzz mode
    • Volume, Tone, Drive & Toggle controls x2

    FREDRIC EFFECTS Zesty Comp

    £100.00

    Characterful Compressor With Boost Capability

    The Fredric Effects Zesty Comp is an evolution of the classic Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer compressor.

    A characterful rather than transparent compressor, the Zesty Comp thickens your tone, adding sustain, attack, presence and even some top-end sparkle.

    As Tim at Fredric Effects explains, "This is truly compression as an effect - there are none of the 'is it on?' moments you can get with certain transparent compressors".

    Input Gain

    An addition to the original Orange Squeezer design, the Input Gain allows you to compensate for pickup output, whether you are running single-coils or humbuckers. The hotter the input signal, the more it will be compressed.

    Compression Toggle

    Another addition for the Zesty Comp is the three-way toggle switch allowing you to select three different levels of compression. Pick from a lighter touch to super-compressed and characterful.

    Level

    If you want to get creative, you can use the Zesty Comp as a boost pedal. Set the Level control above unity gain and kick it in on a solo to push your amp and also add all that compression loveliness.

    Features:

    • An evolution of the classic Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer compressor
    • Three compression settings
    • Handbuilt in London
    • Input Gain, Level & Compression toggle controls
    • Power: 9V centre-negative or 9V battery (neither included)

    FREDRIC EFFECTS Regent 150 Preamp

    £120.00

    "A Magic-Dust Sprinkler"...

    The Fredric Effects Regent 150 Preamp pedal is a faithful recreation of the preamp and EQ sections from a cold war-era East German amp, the Vermona Regent 150K. It features vintage-correct NOS transistors and sturdy construction to keep you playing all night long!

    The Regent 150 Preamp can sweeten your core sound like a traditional preamp, or turn into a boost or distortion pedal by using the controls more aggressively. The Volume control adds gain as you turn it up, taking you into gritty distortion territory, while the Bass and Treble controls allow you to get classic mid-boost or mid-scooped sounds as well as more modern tones with plenty of top-end sparkle.

    The internal charge pump IC converts 9V into the 15V DC that the original amp ran on. This gives the pedal tons of headroom with the ability to produce extraordinary clarity. 

    "There’s more, but we don’t have room to describe it all. Basically this is a magic-dust sprinkler" - Guitarist Magazine (Editor's Choice) December 2019

    This deserves to be an always-on pedal on your pedalboard. It stacks really well and  offers loads of flexibility. The build quality is exceptional too, with a folded steel chassis. The icing on the cake is that as this is based on a rare East German amp rather than the ubiquitous Fender or Marshall circuit, you will definitely stand out from the masses!

    Features:

    • Preamp pedal based on a rare East German cold war-era amplifier
    • Handmade in London, UK
    • Volume, Bass & Treble controls
    • Power: 9V centre-negative or 9V battery (neither included)

    £125.00

    The Blues Breaker You've Been Looking For!

    The Fredric Effects Blue Monarch overdrive is based on the 1990s Marshall Blues Breaker and features all the mods offered by the cult Analog Man King Of Tone version.

    All four controls are easily accessible on the front of the pedal, and the King Of Tone internal dip switches have been replaced with a clipping toggle. In the "up" position the sound is less compressed and more open, with less distortion. 

    In addition, Fredric Effects has added an internal dip switch to turn on a boost circuit and increase the amount of gain on tap, making this a super-versatile overdrive that will fit well in any rig.

    Features:

    • Modded version of the Marshall Bluesbreaker and Analog Man King Of Tone
    • Handmade in London, UK
    • Volume, Gain, Tone, Treble Boost, Clipping & Boost controls
    • Power: 9V DC centre-negative or 9V battery (neither included)

    £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)

    FREDRIC EFFECTS Accomplished Badger Germanium Preamp

    £125.00

    An Accomplished Multitool...

    The Fredric Effects Accomplished Badger is a dual-stage preamp/boost utilising a 4558 op-amp stage which drives A NOS vintage germanium transistor.

    Impressive Internals

    To maximise its potential as a clean boost, the Accomplished Badger features an internal charge-pump which runs at 18v from a 9v input. An audio-grade Triad output transformer provides musical saturation and breakup character.

    What sounds can I get out of the Accomplished Badger?

    The result is a glorious sound that goes from ultra-clean to harmonically rich.

    You can turn the germanium stage right down for a super-clean op-amp boost, while turning up the germanium gain stage and driving it hard with the Clean Gain mini pot gets you into super-saturated, gritty, velcro fuzz territory.

    Turning both controls to middling levels gives way to beautifully expansive tones with that characteristic germanium responsiveness and "bounce".

    This is a super-versatile low-gain pedal, giving you the option of dialling in as much or as little germanium colouration as you like, or allowing you to run it as a clean preamp. A must for your pedalboard!

    Features:

    • Dual-stage preamp/boost
    • NOS vintage germanium transistors
    • Internal charge pump converts 9V to 18V for more headroom
    • Handmade in London, UK
    • Gain, Volume, Si Bias, Ge Bias & circuit toggle controls

    RAYGUN FX Echohead Analogue Delay

    £129.00

    Modulated Tape Echo Sounds

    The Raygun FX Echohead Analogue Delay is a tape-style delay with modulation and filter controls.

    If you're after degrading repeats, spaced-out lead lines or characterful chording, this is the delay for you. You can use the bank of modulation controls to simulate tape wow and flutter.

    Dial in your perfect sound with the various controls:

    Delay

    Control the delay with Speed, Blend & Feedback. The Filter control on the side of the unit adjusts the frequency range of the delay; make it brighter or darker as you wish. The Squash toggle on the opposite side of the unit compresses the tails and prevents the delay from going into full oscillation.

    Modulation

    Control the modulation with Depth & Rate. The second footswitch turns the Modulation on or off.

    There are also internal trim pots to adjust the input gain and output level - adjusting the input gain can affect how clean or dirty the delay effect is.

    As used by Grant from Feeder during the recording of Tallulah!

    Features:

    • Tape-style analogue delay with modulation
    • Handmade in the UK
    • Speed, Blend, Feedback, Depth, Rate, Filter & Squash controls
    • Internal trimpots to adjust input gain and output level
    • Power: 9V power supply, centre-negative (not included)

    FREDRIC EFFECTS Verzerrer

    £140.00

    Spitty East German Splutter-Fuzz

    The Fredric Effects Verzerrer is based on the only cold war-era East German distortion pedal, originally produced in the 1960s and '70s. It veers from distortion into spitty fuzz and full on velcro mode and sounds remarkably unique.

    The original featured a plastic enclosure and trim pots that had to be adjusted with a screwdriver - not exactly gig-friendly. Fredric Effects' updated version takes the original design, including using original diodes and transistors, and improves the pedal by encasing it in a sturdy folded metal mini-wedge enclosure and adding circuit-board mounted dip-switches for additional tweakability.

    "It’s just pure nastiness. This pedal nails the splutter-fuzz effect as well as any we’ve tried" - Guitarist Magazine December 2019

    The Bias control allows you to produce gated, dying-battery tones when turned down, or increase sustain as it is turned up.

    The internal dip switches are:

    • NR1/NR2: Noise reduction
    • Limit Res: The original's volume-limiting resistor
    • Boost Off: Boost is on by default in order to engage the volume boost
    • Boost On x2: These must be on to engage the volume boost

    This pedal can produce really gritty sounds that stand out in the mix. The Tone control is very responsive and can bring your sound forward or supress buzzy high end depending on how you set it.

    If you love velcro, spitty fuzz sounds then you can't go wrong with this awesome piece of nostalgia!

    Features:

    • Distortion/fuzz reproduction of a rare East German original
    • Original old-stock diodes and transistors
    • Handmade in London, UK
    • Tone, Input Level, Volume, Intensity, Bias & Internal Dip Switch controls
    • Power: 9V power supply, centre-negative or 9V battery (neither are included)

    FREDRIC EFFECTS DuoFace

    £140.00

    Germanium & Silicon Fuzz Face

    The Fredric Effects DuoFace is your one-stop shop for the Fuzz Face tones you've been dreaming of. Whether you covet the germanium circuit of early Hendrix, or the more agressive post-'68 silicon version, the DuoFace allows you to have both in a single pedal.

    The Fuzz Face is one of the most famous fuzz pedals of all time, used by guitarists including Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Duane Allman, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson and Joe Bonamassa. It's renowned for its ability to clean up with the guitar's volume pot, making it a great effect if you like to control your sound with your fingers rather than your feet.

    The DuoFace allows you to switch between the germanium and silicon circuits using the toggle switch, and each circuit features a Bias trimpot to adjust how the transistors react - from gated and splatty to smooth and sustainy - for a wide variety of useable sounds.

    Hendrix licks not included!

    Features:

    • Dual fuzz based on the Fuzz Face Germanium & silicon circuits
    • Handmade in London, UK

    BAD PENNY FX Fuzz Controller V2

    £145.00

    Built To Order...

    The Bad Penny FX Fuzz Controller V2 is a high gain silicon fuzz with power filtering and independent boost circuits, each of which can be adjusted via internal trim-pots.

    It's a brilliant fuzz, utilising vintage Philips, K40Y-9 Russian military-grade, and Sprague Vitamin Q paper-in-oil capacitors, all connected with vintage-style cloth wiring and housed in a beautiful English ash and aluminium chassis.

    Starve

    Use the Starve switch to limit the power running into the Fuzz Controller, emulating a dying 9V battery for seriously organic, squashy tones.

    Diode

    The Diode switch allows you to switch between LED clipping and 1N4148 silicon diode clipping. When turned off, there's less gain but more volume, enabling an overdrive-type response.

    Bass Cut

    The Bass Cut switch shelves some of the lower frequencies while simultaneously boosting the signal for an aggressive sound.

    Treble Cut

    The Treble Cut switch compresses the high end and lops off the highest frequencies. 

    The Bad Penny FX Fuzz Controller V2 is clean and loud if you want it to be, but set it right and it gets down and dirty too!

    Please note: The Bad Penny FX Fuzz Controller V2 is built to order. Please allow around 7 days build time plus shipping time.

    Features:

    • High-gain silicon fuzz with vintage components
    • English ash hardwood and aluminium enclosure
    • True bypass
    • Handmade in East-Sussex, UK

    Sonic Annihilation!

    From it’s humble beginnings as a modified Fuzz Factory' circuit to its latest iteration, Zander Circuitry's first pedal model has come a long way.

    These days the SiClone Silicon Chaos Initiator is a super-versatile 8-knob fuzz monstrosity, capable of taking you from vintage-style fuzz tones right through to complete sonic annihilation!

    There is plenty of scope to push your imagination with this pedal - use the Shunt control to tame feedback and create stuttering gated effects. Squash compresses the attack, creating a synth-like character at higher settings. Starve restricts the voltage to the circuit, creating beautiful dying-battery sounds. Bright allows you to dial in just the right amount of high frequency, while Body enables you to emphasise or cut the low end. Punch controls the mid-range frequencies.

    The Tone footswitch allows you to bypass the Bright and Punch settings to give a fat, mid-rich sound with a volume boost, although the output can be reduced by means of an internal trim pot if required.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry SiClone Silicon Chaos Initiator features a more compact footprint with beautiful knurled steel controls. The circuit is revoiced and the transistors used in this latest version are completely different.

    The footswitches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

    Features:

    • Updated version of SiClone Chaos Initiator for 2021
    • Super-versatile fuzz pedal
    • Top-mounted jacks
    • Shunt, Squash, Starve, Bright, Level, Body, Punch, Fuzz & Tone controls

    ZANDER CIRCUITRY Cranium Murine Distortion

    £149.00

    Super-RAT!

    Zander Circuitry's Cranium Murine Distortion is an all-in-one version of the famous RAT circuit, pulling together the best bits from various mods and generational iterations and introducing enhancements such as Zander Circuitry's signature diode selector.

    Key to the Cranium's flexible approach to the RAT circuit is the interplay between Freq and Tone controls, enabling precise dialling in of your sound. The Body control takes this even further, affecting how much bass is produced for a deeper or more sculpted tone.

    The Blast control allows you to set the gain level for the second footswitch for a volume/gain boost when kicked in.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Cranium Murine Distortion features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:

    • Germanium: A smooth, sweet sounding form of clipping, very ‘amp-like’ in its response.
    • Silicon: Louder, brighter and more aggressive sounding.
    • LED: Even louder, less saturated but very punchy.
    • Asymmetrical germanium: A more aggressive germanium sound.
    • Asymmetrical silicon: Beefing up the aggression of the silicon sound.
    • Asymmetrical LED: A more aggressive version of the LED sound.
    • MOSFET: Similar to the silicon setting but a bit sweeter, crunchier and a touch more saturated.
    • No  diodes: Loads of output but not much gain.

    The footswitches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

    Features:

    • Updated version of Cranium Dual Gain Distortion for 2021
    • Top-mounted jacks
    • Level, Gain, Tone, Freq, Body, Level, Blast & Diode Selector Controls
    • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included).

    For Those Who Prize "Feel"...

    Zander Circuitry's Surplus Elemental Overdriver is a two-stage transistor boost/ overdrive pedal with the capability to achieve beautiful clean boost tones as well as complex distortion and even some fuzz.

    The pedal features two foot-switchable channels with independent gain controls, perfect for on-the-fly switching. The switches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches.

    Use the Response control to tweak the input and output capacitor value, rolling off the gain and low-end frequencies to achieve super-complex tones. It offers everything from a thinner, brighter character through to a grainy, spitty character. This pedal is incredibly reactive to your guitar's volume pot and playing dynamics, making it great for those of you who prize 'feel' above all else.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Surplus Elemental Overdriver features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:

    • Germanium: A smooth, sweet sounding form of clipping, very ‘amp-like’ in its response.
    • Silicon: Louder, brighter and more aggressive sounding.
    • LED: Even louder, less saturated but very punchy.
    • Asymmetrical germanium: A more aggressive germanium sound.
    • Asymmetrical silicon: Beefing up the aggression of the silicon sound.
    • Asymmetrical LED: A more aggressive version of the LED sound.
    • MOSFET: Similar to the silicon setting but a bit sweeter, crunchier and a touch more saturated.
    • No  diodes: Loads of output but not much gain.

    The pedal features two foot-switchable channels with independent gain controls, perfect for on-the-fly switching. The switches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

    • Top-mounted jacks
    • Level 1, Level 2, Gain 1, Gain 2, Tone, Response, Channel 2 & Diode Selector Controls

    ZANDER CIRCUITRY Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp

    £149.00

    Independent Preamp & Fuzz Channels

    The Zander Circuitry Sono is one for all you bassists out there: a bass fuzz and preamp in a single small package. 

    The preamp side of the pedal takes you from clean to medium-gain, and importantly the Blend control allows you to add back in some of your original signal for clarity and spank. 

    Add fuzz to a good core bass tone and you have the recipe for some awesome sounds. Use the fuzz side of the Sono to dial in a tone that suits, and use the Blend control to add back in some of your original signal to ensure nothing gets lost in action. The Rip control enables you to dial in compression and some of that delicious gated/ velcro mayhem. Seriously, let it rip!

    As the preamp and fuzz sides are completely independent, you can also stack them together for even more flexibility.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp features a more compact footprint, with bespoke knurled steel controls. The Blend controls have been updated to work better, the fuzz tone has been tweaked, and the preamp side now offers a wider gain range.

    The footswitches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

    Features:

    • Updated version of Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp for 2021
    • Super-versatile fuzz and preamp pedal specifically tuned for bass guitar
    • Top-mounted jacks
    • P Lvl, P Gain, P Blend, F Lvl, F Gain, F Blend, F Tone & F Rip controls
    • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included).
    • Current draw: 135mA

    ZANDER CIRCUITRY Foxxton Woods

    £149.00

    Upper-Octave Fuzz

    The Zander Circuitry Foxxton Woods is an octave fuzz based on the 1970s Foxx Tone Machine. But in true Zander Circuitry fashion, the Foxxton Woods takes the concept to another level, with extra controls giving far more versatility than the original.

    Since the 1960s, fuzz has gone hand-in-hand with octave effects, and it's been popular ever since. The Foxxton Woods spans eras with its tones, from classic '60s to filthy '90s and more. 

    The Body Control adjusts the low-end frequencies, allowing you to dial in muscular, deep tones or a tighter, more focused sound for cutting through a mix - or somewhere in between. 

    The Shift control adjusts the mid-range frequencies, enabling you go from mid-scooped to mid-boosted tones.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Foxxton Woods fuzz features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:

    • Germanium: A smooth, sweet sounding form of clipping, very ‘amp-like’ in its response.
    • Silicon: Louder, brighter and more aggressive sounding.
    • LED: Even louder, less saturated but very punchy.
    • Asymmetrical germanium: A more aggressive germanium sound.
    • Asymmetrical silicon: Beefing up the aggression of the silicon sound.
    • Asymmetrical LED: A more aggressive version of the LED sound.
    • MOSFET: Similar to the silicon setting but a bit sweeter, crunchier and a touch more saturated.
    • No  diodes: Loads of output but not much gain.

    The pedal features two foot-switches, enabling you to access the octave-fuzz or fuzz separately - each is also linked to an independent volume control. The switches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage one of the effects by holding your foot down on the relevant switch then releasing it when you're done.

    Features:

    • Updated version of Foxxton Woods for 2021
    • Top-mounted jacks
    • Gain, Tone, Body, Shift, O Level, F Level & Diode Selector Controls
    • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included).
    • Current draw: 128mA
