Skreddy Pedals Hybrid Fuzz Driver
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.
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.
