The Fuzz Peaks pedal is a spin on the classic Black Russian Big Muff circuit.
With most bass Big Muffs is the lack of low end and over saturation. The tonal characteristics are very Big but not so Muff’ed.
Some features that were added to improve this pedal from the Black Russian Muff:
– Buffered Clean Blend
– Second Parallel Clean Output
– Momentary Feedback Switch
– Edge Knob labeled „Behave“
– Clipping Selection Toggle Switch
– Less aggressively scooped Tone Knob
The Buffered Clean Blend retains your highs, lows, and attack so the mid-range fuzz has room to do its thing.
The Parallel Clean Output adds another dimension of utility. Use this output to route your pedal board to separate effects, a DI for studio or live sound, or a bi-amp configuration.
For all you noise makers and synth-lovers out there:
The Momentary Feedback switch can create some ridiculous squeals as well as change the attack and quality of the fuzz. Use the Spectrum knob to adjust the pitch of the squeals.
Need more aggressive pick attack to your sound?
The Behave Knob can be used for improving your presence or to be the fly on the wall frequency.
The Twilight Zone switch will add or remove the diodes for more or less dirt and aggressive clipping.
The original tone stack in the Black Russian Muff is awful for bass. There, I said it…
This Tone Stack is lightly scooped in the midrange and will retain if not improve the highs and lows.
The artwork is based off of classic sci-fi shows like Twin Peaks, X-Files, and The Twilight Zone, the artwork depicts an integrated design incorporating themes from each show.
