Pigtronix shrinks the fuzz

Pigtronix says its brand new Disnortion (that’s not a typo) Micro ‘packs all the sonic glory and 18V headroom of the original analogue Fuzz and Overdrive circuits from the large-format Disnortion pedal into a miniature version that runs on 9-volts.’

This new micro version of the Disnortion includes the ability to switch from a parallel routing to a new, super-saturated series routing where the 6-stage CMOS overdrive circuit is cascaded into unique Pigtronix diode-clipping fuzz, and then output through a 6-way passive filter network, says distributor JHS. ‘A single-gain knob controls the saturation of both the fuzz and overdrive circuits simultaneously while the Parallel routing mode is ideal for players who like to pile on the gain without sacrificing clarity, dynamic response, punch or low end – it’s like double-tracking your guitar inside a micro pedal! The Series routing mode offers an even wider range of gain and more extreme filter effects for metal tones and beyond, including self-oscillating timbres that can be modulated by pickup selection and guitar control settings.’

Pigtronix Fuzz is said to have a unique diode-clipping architecture designed to deliver compression and controllable feedback while preserving the dynamics of a guitarist’s playing style. The rotary tone control filter switch provides 6 musical EQ curves using a complex passive network which compliments the Overdrive channel’s traditional low-pass filter.

The RRP is £159.
