Black Cat OD-Fuzz
The Black Cat OD-Fuzz is a versatile, two-channel distortion/fuzz box that combines the Black Cat OD-1 with a traditional silicon Fuzz Face in one pedal. Each channel of the OD-Fuzz has its own set of controls with separate LEDs for each side. The two channels can be used separately or together in combination. Each effect has its own distinct sound, but the blend of both channels together will yield an incredibly wide range of tonal possibilities, from slightly overdriven to full-blown fuzz. The controls become highly interactive when both effects are engaged.
The Black Cat OD-Fuzz is also available in Germanium and Ge/Si Hybrid fuzz variations:
The OD-Fuzz Hybrid is essentially the same as the standard Black Cat OD-Fuzz, except it uses a combination of Germanium and Silicon transistors in the fuzz circuit. This gives you the earthy warmth of Germanium and the sizzle of Silicon together in one fuzz. The Hybrid Fuzz channel also blends incredibly well with the OD channel.
The Germanium OD-Fuzz uses two NOS 1960s metal can Germanium transistors in the fuzz channel. It cleans up well when you roll back the volume on the guitar, and does everything that players have come to expect from a good Germanium Fuzz Face. It compliments the OD channel nicely by offering a bit more contrast in tone and texture.
