Each HERETIC features three matched NOS Germanium Transistors from the 1970s for ideal effect controlled by three knobs:
- Volume: Regulates the level of output that the power stages push through the circuit. The flexibility of the pedal does not over complicate things, we’ve worked hard to ensure that any and all settings are usable.
- Bias: Enables player to dial in the versatile resistance to their specific needs, from tight attack to very transparent open low-end.
- Attack: Controls the aggressiveness of the fuzz wave. Similar to sustain/gain control.
9VDC POWER supply with a 2.1mm negative tip. A quality pedal specific isolated power supply is required. Please avoid daisy chains. Use of a non pedal specific power supply unit may damage the pedal or cause unwanted noise.
"I used these pedals extensively while recording “Purple,” and I have two of them in my current tour-board. They are well suited for vintage-style low-gain fuzz, over-the-top full-bodied saturation, and work particularly well with a bass guitar, as the bias knob allows the full low-end spectrum to pass through." -JB
