It’s been a little while since I posted a Fat Tone video.. and it’s about time! I came across a very interesting pedal video for the Fairfield Circuitry Four Eyes Fuzz. This video has something that immediately caught my ear. There is sweep in frequency (or something). Looking at the YouTube description, it states “That is an expression pedal you hear”. Okay… now you have my attention.
Here is the official description by Fairfield Circuitry:
Three parallel JFET fuzz circuits driven by a voltage controlled state variable filter with resonance control,
mu-amp input stage and quite possibly, a wedgie.
In other words, this is one versatile fuzz box. The wide operating range of the frequency control, switchable resonance and the three drive pots allows this dweeb to go places you never thought possible. From extreme to relatively subtle; from super thin to ridiculously fat.
The Four Eyes Fuzz wasn’t designed to sound like your favourite vintage fuzz. You might be able to tweak it to sound close, but it truly does its own thing.
There is currently a waiting list for the fuzz. To reserve a spot simply shoot us an e-mail and we’ll go from there.
Looking at the spec sheet, I’m a little confused. The input for the expression pedal states: “0-5v control voltage or expression pedal input”. Not sure if the expression pedal controls the voltage, or if it sweeps the FREQ.
