Skreddy Pedals Hybrid Fuzz Driver

Engaging and touch sensitive, the Hybrid Fuzz Driver brings your guitar tone to life!

Has a treble-boosted flavor.  Distorts with a creamy voice yet retains your guitar's essential nature, preserving tightness and airiness across the full range of settings.

Aggressive but not too fuzzy in high-gain mode; articulate boost in low-gain mode.

Clean up with guitar volume is phenomenal, predictable and smooth.

Don't worry about the word "fuzz;" this pedal goes anywhere in the signal chain just fine. The impedance-matching input stage works behind wah pedals without squeal or tone suck and does not mind having buffers in front of it either--retains cleanup and touch sensitivity regardless of where you put it. Absolutely LOVES to have a phaser or vibe in front, too.


Mid Boost
Sets the gain of the input stage, and is set to boost mids rather than full range boost. Gives you more aggression, gain, and compression but keeps the bass TIGHT. If you want more headroom and cleanness, this is what you'll want to turn down first. This is your hot, sustaining pre-amp gain control.
(A subtle control) Dials in the amount of low mids going into the fuzz section, to give you a light, sparkly attack clockwise, or add swampy saturation and beefy chug counter-clockwise, or keep it neutral in the middle. This control is somewhat interactive with the Mid Boost control as it affects its frequency range.
Sets the gain of the overdrive section and takes you from clean through touch-sensitive overdrive all the way to sustaining, cranked-amp fuzz. Gives you greasy, chimey, huge-sounding power-tube type distortion.
Lets you get a lot more brilliance and bite or make it darker and smoother, to suit your amp and taste. A lot of treble boost is available; you might want this turned down when the other controls are cranked up. I usually keep it at noon.
Passive humbucker pickups should achieve unity gain between noon and 2:00 o'clock. Passive single coil pickups should find unity gain around noon. Active humbuckers might take 3:00 o'clock to reach unity gain volume.

Unity Gain: Since any dirt pedal will compress your signal, you'll get roughly the same volume no matter how hard you hit the strings, when it's on, yeah? So here's how you figure what constitutes "unity gain" with the HFD pedal: switch it to bypass and hit a chord LOUDLY. Now switch the pedal on and do the same thing. Adjust the volume of your HFD until it roughly matches your bypassed volume while you are hitting a loud chord.


9v battery is not included. If you use a battery, then remember to un-plug the input cable from the pedal’s input jack when not in use to prevent draining (or you can also just plug in a power-supply, which disconnects the battery).

You may supply external power through an AC adapter. All Skreddy Pedals accept the industry-standard 9v DC plug (5.5mm barrel x 2.1mm center coax), negative tip. Please use a quality, regulated, filtered power supply.
