1000 years ago, long before the birth of mankind, a squadron of sonically sinister, synthetic life forms, a.k.a. robots, left their home galaxy to roam the universe. They traveled trillions of space-miles and saw wondrous sights... all the while destroying clean guitar tones and ruining lives on a galactic scale.
The merciless robots left every guitar tone in their path utterly and horrifyingly murderized beyond recognition. Nothing was safe... humbuckers, single coils, solid states, vacuum tubes, any signal chain through any device - destroyed - loudly. They would have kept doing this for another 1000 years if not for one small detail they had overlooked... they underestimated exactly how hard Dr. Scientist likes to rock.
Turns out the robots' shocking and devastating form of sonic annihilation was exactly the kind of guitar tone that a team of Dr. Scientist Frazzonauts was trying to develop. So Dr. Scientist arranged a meeting with the robot leader... and mercilessly defeated him in multiple arm wrestling matches. And then he made the robots give Dr. Scientist Sounds the mystical and frightening knowledge of the dark side of fuzz...the far side of frazz... the FRAZZ DAZZLER!
The Frazz Dazzler is a truly unruly analog distortion device. A thick, wild, cutting, grinding, wall of fuzz that will crush your enemies' bones into dust and scare off werewolves - perfect for the extreme guitar tones of today's brave new world. And that's just on your clean channel!
Start with the toggle switch, it chooses between a low to medium gain fuzz sound that isn't gated (better for stacking with other pedals or a dirty amp plus it cleans up nicely with your guitar volume knob) or a gated high gain fuzz sound (better for using with a clean amp for a really heavy and mean tone).
The MIX control blends dry/clean signal with the Frazz signal - especially cool for bass guitars, drum machines, and synthesizers... but if you want to mix in some clean acoustic guitar or that weird vibraslap thing you're always hitting we think that'll probably sound pretty cool too. (The jack on the side of the box is an expression pedal input for controlling the mix. You need a TRS style pedal with 50k or more resistance.)
GAIN controls the amount of unruliness the pedal unleashes upon the world. Low gain mode covers gritty overdrive to quite aggressive fuzz while the high gain mode covers gated blippy fuzz to very aggressive, very slicey and scary sounding fuzz.
SIZZLE adjusts the treble content, from really really dark... the doomiest darkness for the sludgiest sludgeness... all the way to really really bright...like that wonderful static noise that old T.V. made after you pushed it out that hotel room window back in Cleveland...
VOLUME controls the output level of the Frazz Dazzler. (Watch your style with it, these are really loud pedals and hey, you don't need your neighbours calling the cops again.)
Dr. Scientist knows you want a wild fuzz tone. You want to sound like a chainsaw... cutting the moon in half... while it's on fire. And you want powerful controls for finessing the frazzing, shaping the sizzling, cruising for the bruising, racing for the macing, mixing in some un-Frazzed tone for kicks, and then blasting that concoction up some wahoos! Plus, dammit, you want to see a cool looking robot and a sharp LED on it! You owe it to yourself - and the universe - to check out a FRAZZ DAZZLER! (MSRP $200)
Fun Frazz Facts:
Remember that robot from that movie? The big one with the lights and the noises and he did all that stuff... right, him, he was over 100 feet tall, weighed about a million pounds, and was really friendly. Frazzes are only about 6cm (2.4") wide by 11cm (4.3") long by 5cm (2") tall, depending on the knobs. They weigh less than a pound and don't like cuddling with anything, ever, don't even waste your time trying.
Frazzes sound like when a big angry robot stomps into your yard and pulls the roof off your house and eats it, but don't worry... your house probably won't be damaged much by your Frazz. Just as long as you only feed it regulated 9 to 18 VDC using the standard BOSS style 2.1mm center negative plug and about 50mA of current. You can't run a Frazz off a battery... you really should be using a large-scale fusion reactor... but a wall-wart will save you all the legal troubles that come with a basement nuclear plant.
Frazzes are true bypass, true bad ass, and true hand ass(embled and finished).
