Pine-Box Customs Ruminations Fuzz
Tinker. Take notes. Repeat.
VOLUME- We still haven’t figured out exactly what this one does. Stay tuned for updates.
BIAS- Controls the amount of voltage you are sending to the transistors. CW will result in a louder more woolly fuzz. CCW will give you a much smoother fuzz that even reaches overdrive territory. There is also a rumor circulating that there are some glitchy, dying battery sounds somewhere in the rotation. Ahab wants you to lean towards CW; but what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him.
FUZZ- As you probably guessed, the FUZZ control allows you to regulate the amount of fuzz/distortion. The FUZZ knob is a little different than your standard control; at noon, you will have a blend of two slightly different fuzz textures, offering you the cleanest setting. The amount of fuzz/distortion increases both counter-clockwise and clockwise, offering you two similar, but different voicing options. 5 and 7 o’clock will be your highest gain settings.
SHAPE- The SHAPE control gives you the ability to shape the circuit on the front end to better suit different pickup styles. CW adds rich high-end harmonics, and is better suited for higher output, humbucker equipped guitars. CCW will accentuate the lows and add a bit of volume/gain. This setting works extremely well for single coil pickups with a lower output.
TONE- CW highs. CCW lows.
