The Red Noise Germanium Stone Blender is the silicon Stone Blender's non identical twin. Or bastard son. You decide...
So what changed?
1 - Germanium transistors! These are new old stock Matsushita 2SD352 Japanese NPN transistors from the 60's.
2 - Two new diodes! 1N270 (Ge) and BAT41 (Si) replacing the 1N4148 and blue LED.
3 - A few modifications to the circuit reflecting the different characteristics of the germanium transistors. These include capacitor values and additional amplification stage at the end of the circuit.
The Germanium Stone Blender adds finesse to the bottom and top end of the frequency range and has a significant volume boost resulting from the additional amplification stage. And, as the Legendary David Torn says: "more feely".
Volume - You know what this is
Fuzz - Controls the amount of signal going into the fuzz circuit. Counterclockwise for less fuzz, clockwise for more fuzz
Tone - Filters high & low frequency (Counterclockwise for low, clockwise for high)
De-Clip - Offers further tonality shaping in the mid range, controlling how “forward” the guitar sits in the mix, thus adding presence. Perfect for bass players and guitarists who want to stand out.
All Red Noise Pedals come with a 14 day money back guarantee as long as pedals are returned in their original new condition and are in perfect working order.
Wide range of fuzz tones from spitty to syroupy and everything in between. Have a lot of fuzz pedals and lots of the famous ones but this is the most fun.
Fuzzy full plate of sound
I love this pedal and all the variety of fuzz choices you can modify! Sounds nice on bass and guitar. Thanks!
Best Fuzz ever!
I play guitar and bass and I have to say that this pedal really nails it for me on both.
The de-clip knob sort of blends a dry signal into the effected one and it really helps keeping clarity and tonal focus so that what I'm playing doesn't get lost in the noise. On the bass the lows are ridiculous... Super precise and punchy.
Fucking love it!
