LIMITED EDITION GERMANIUM – 2018 (Current)

Logo

A limited run of germanium based circuits, drawing inspiration from the classics, with modern twists and improvements. No spiels about “Mojo” or desirable “catch phrases” here…this range is purely based around getting the best out of the Germanium Transistors (New and Old stock) we have hoarded over the years.

“This project has been a 2-3 year process…grading, sorting, testing germanium transistors at various temperatures and in circuit…over and over again” – JC

The concept –   Laser engraved Stainless Steel faceplates, shared amongst the circuit variations. Initial 50pcs total.

Controls –

Output – Volume level
Range – Wired up at the very front of the circuit, as a Guitar input control. This allows
adjusting the dynamic nature of a good germanium fuzz circuit for verge of breakup clean tones (which can be utilised with the output control to boost into crunchy amps)
Use this along with your guitars volume control to get the best dynamics.

Shift Toggle –
Up = extra headroom
Down = a little more compressed, with asymetrical clipping for “spittier and gritty” overtones

Lilac goes from …Mild…to Wild… and suits either running into a clean amp, or kicking into an overdriven base tone

Lilac has been setup and biased for 9VDC Centre Negative power only 

(No Battery option, please use a quality power supply)
