While working on tomorrow’s demo/review post, I stumbled across Fat Tone’s video review of the Earthquaker Devices Dirt Transmitter pedal, so I thought I would mention this real quick like. Seems like a very interesting lo-fi style pedal that might be the thing you’re looking for! When I say lo-fi, I think I’m saying old-school retro fuzz, something about it.. is quite cool.
Here is the official description:
The EarthQuaker Devices Dirt Transmitter Pedal is designed for the fuzz pedal fan who wants it all. It features a dual transistor setup for the fuzz tone we all look for. Built with only the finest parts, the EarthQuaker Devices Dirt Transmitter Pedal is almost silent when in engaged and completely quiet when disengaged thanks for the true bypass switch.
The EarthQuaker Devices Dirt Transmitter Pedal has an unbelievable range of tones lurking within it’s industrial metal case. The key to the sound is the Bias control which controls the voltage being sent to the transistors. It allows the Dirt Transmitter to have a cool gated style fuzz when twisted counter clockwise and when turned back the other way the fuzz returns to normal. The transistors become properly biased at around 2 O’Clock. Add to that a Tone knob that is essentially a bass cut, and you begin to realize the power that is the EarthQuaker Devices Dirt Transmitter Pedal.
