Come one, come all! “The Freakshow” is officially in town! As you know, there is a lot to be excited about under the tent here at Big Joe, but these two new curiosities will surely appeal to the Fuzz aficionados among you. Be it Germanium or Silicon, we’ve designed a fuzz box to suit your preferred tonal flavor. Our Freakshow Germanium Fuzz is highly responsive, fat sounding, and harmonically-rich, and features two NOS matched transistors that nail all of the vintage-style fuzzed out fun you’d expect and want from such a pedal. The Silicon version is the way to go if you’re after a totally freaked out fuzz. It’s brighter, has a modern sound, and more gain, so it’s sure to deliver that high-gain ferocity you’ve always been after.
Both pedals also have external Bias and Trim controls, offering flexibility with symmetry, gain structure, and clipping. A selectable input impedance Buffer circuit gives you a brighter sound, but also helps remove high-end roll off and oscillation that can occur when Fuzz is not placed first in the signal chain.
But beware, once you plug in these pedals, you’ll hear things you can’t unhear. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…
