The Mother of Fuzz is our Germanium fuzz. These Transistors spent thirty icy winters in Soviet Union. They watched the Cold War turn their land into Ukraine, and now they came all the way to the tropical lands of Brazil, to find a final destination to a much brighter purpose than what its creators had in mind: To transform the sound of your guitar.
Its circuit has its roots in the vintage fuzzes of the 60s. The filter is a very versatile tone control. At the maximum, it is radically acute, as sharp as knife, and the zero is very serious, delivering a tone as heavy as an elephant, and passing through all the timbres in between.
The Mother of fuzz was designed to have an stratospheric gain. With the knob at zero, it is already quite crummy, if you turn the control up, it mainly changes the tone of the fuzz. But why? For as every good fuzz, even the Germanium one, the guitar volume already completely cleans the distortion pedal, so an extra pressure on the fuzz makes it more versatile. If you want a less distorted tone, just lower the volume of your own guitar, as the Great ones once did, the fuzz cleans it thoroughly, without losing volume.
All of these features were made possible due to the quality of the components used in this pedal. When we say we do not measure our efforts in our pedals, it is because of the Mother of fuzz. Besides the Soviet transistors, we use mylarcapacitors and former carbon Allen -Bradley resistors to create the creamy tone that only a real germanium fuzz makes. And unlike the old fuzzes germanium, it has polarity protection that works in perfect harmony with 9V sources.
