Hello All, just wanted to remind you that you can still enter the Flickinger Tone Boxes Angry Sparrow give away. I will stop accepting submissions on Oct 27, so be sure to get your name in. This is a great fuzz by Flickinger Tone Boxes, and this guy will definitely find a happy home. If you’ve already entered (one entry per person), please help spread the word with a re-tweet or Facebook post.
Here are the controls/instructions for the Angry Sparrow:
This controls the overall output volume of your Angry Sparrow. Be aware, this device is capable of a very large volume boost to your signal.
Make sure not to overload other effects or your amplifier!
SINGLE TONE CONTROL:
This is a passive low-pass tone control. Very similar to what is on your guitar/bass.
Most of the time you will leave it wide open (full clockwise), just like most players do with their tone control on their instrument.
However, it can be very useful to tame the highs on a very bright amp, or if you want a darker tone at higher gain settings.
The Angry Sparrow Deluxe’s tone-stack is a three band passive EQ that is interactive.
In order to get the results you want, keep in mind that the controls only subtract from the signal. The tone-stack is basically removed from the circuit with all controls at full clockwise.
Also, the Middle control will assume more of the high and low frequencies as you reduce the Treble and Bass controls. Decide which frequencies you want more to add, and reduce the other controls.
Much time and effort was put into exactly how the gain control functions.
At the lowest (counter-clockwise) settings, there will be very little change from your original sound, only a little compression and a warming of the tone.
You can set the volume higher and use the pedal as a warm-boost.
As you increase the gain, you will find dozens of musical overdrive/distortion/fuzz tones that work with more complicated chords and harmonies than you would expect from a circuit of this type.
I put together a review a little while ago – “Flickinger Tone Boxes – Angry Sparrow Demo“, please read for full description on this pedal. Below is the demo we shot:
