SDOTD, for those of you not familiar with this acronym is Stupid Deal of the Day. This is the great promotion that Musician’s Friend runs on a daily basis, where they slash prices big time on certain items in their store. Obviously, when it’s pedal related, I take notice. Some times there pedals that no one cares about while other times, they’re something worth paying attention to. This is one of those times.
Today’s Stupid Deal of the Day is the Pigtronix OFO Disnortion!
Here is some info on the Pigtronix OFO Disnortion:
The Pigtronix OFO Disnortion stomp box features a touch sensitive Overdrive, Fuzz with 6 different filters and frequency-doubling, Octava. Each effect is an original design and can each be used independently or in combinations to forge a tremendous range of musically responsive distortion sounds. The unique magic of the Pigtronix OFO Disnortion is parallel Fuzz and Overdrive, allowing you to pile on the gain without sacrificing clarity, dynamic response, punch or low end. Well voiced tone and shape controls allow you to focus each effect on its own frequency range. The Octava effects pedal is wired in series before the Overdrive and Fuzz, allowing the guitar pedal to produce a unique type of gated, gnarly grind that is absolutely devastating. A buffered output provides a clean signal for parallel processing or direct recording.
Overdrive”There has never been an Overdrive quite like this. The Pigtronix Overdrive responds to the dynamics of your playing using a proprietary, 5-stage gain architecture that retains the natural tone of your instrument, while gradually breaking up as you play louder. The circuit is so touch sensitive, it has been described as ” . . . more tube than tube.” You must hear it to believe it! From clean or gritty boost right up through Plexi roar, the Pigtronix Overdrive is the most musical overdrive ever made.
Fuzz”Massive gain, full-bodied sustain, and flexible tone shapes define the fuzz effect. Pigtronix’s unique version of diode-clipping provides plenty of compression and controllable feedback while preserving the dynamics of your playing style. The rotary tone control switch provides 6 musical EQ curves: Bass, Scoop, Treble, Smooth, F.A.T., and Full Range. The Pigtronix fuzz can go from clean boost to hair raising, shred fisted, freak-out pandemonium!
Octava”This frequency doubler effect makes the notes you play sound one octave up. A filter control allows you to achieve singing octave up tones without adjusting your guitar’s tone control. Stable intervals such as 4ths and power chords result in knarly, tweezed out grind, while other intervals create ring-modulator textures in all registers. The Octava is wired in series with the other 2 effects for harmonic filled lead tones and outlandishly bizarre crunch. Combine the Octava with both fuzz + overdrive
SDOTD – Pigtronix OFO Disnortion
Okay, let’s talk about the deal! Typically the Pigtronix OFO Disnortion sells for $250, but is currently on sale for a crazy low price of $119! That’s knocking off $130!! Nutz! With Stupid Deals of the Day, these deals only last for 24 hours OR until the unit counts gets low. As with all Stupid Deals, if you want this pedal, you need to jump on it. I’ve personally missed opportunities by being slow.
