I knew you'd find the FM modulation to your liking :D

Is that seriously the filter with resonance at almost maxed out and in 3 spots at the same time, WITH FM mod?

Glitchy arpeggiating bass fuzz heaven.

Bias sets the intensity (good spot there, further to the left, about the halfway point, makes it behave more like a high pass filter)

Resonance will set how often it glitches around.

FM will also control how pronounced the glitch effect is.

Gain 3 can be turned up for more fuzz altogether. Don't touch Gain 2, I find it makes everything sound like shit.

Frequency changes the sound altogether. Adjust to taste, but a distinct possibility you take out this glitch arpeggiation with it (I left it there).

Keep the Tri/Pent switch set upwards. Downwards takes out the effect. Same with the FM switch, needs to be downward.

I shall try.

I like having both gain 2 and 3, they interact differently with different settings and depending on what you're going for.


Overall fuzz setting for me is low pass 3rd stage, starve 12 o clock, hi clipping, treble all the way up.

Rest to taste. Frequency dials in the most sabbathian fuzz ever known.

I had a low gain 2, filter modes 2 and 3 up, and it ACTUALLY STARTED CHIRPING. LIKE BIRDS.

Going from some kinda gentle octavey, clangy intermodulating stuff to clean gain with a simple turn of the freq knob:



It's especially present on the E string 12th fret. Cool as a sublte effect that you could fade in and out with EXP

The album does rock, I listened to it again today on a bus ride. Love how well Pretty Years the pedal captures the sound and feel of Pretty Years the album.

Hi! I do think this pedal can sound very close to many distortion/fuzz pedals on the market.
Here are 2 settings I made based on some of pedals I've been playing or some time.
I'll try in the next days to do the same with : Fuzztone, Fuzzrite, Shin-Ei I have in my possession.
I play on a Jazzmaster AVRI w/ Dollar pickups through Hiwatt 50w combo from 1979.
Settings may be different for you, but it's to give you some ideas.

huh, haven't tried but I'd definitely think the triode mode would fit better for pharaoh sounds.

Nice stuff man, I've been running it as a big angry muff with lows lately.

You can probably get similar sound with another setting.
This one is just my take on it.

That sounded wrong, I meant as in "before trying I would've guessed triode" since the pharaoh isn't very bitey and all.

Someone do a regular fuzz face so I don't have to buy one just to try one!

You want to borrow more of my pedals? Because I have a great FF.

Why not :D

Never tried one. Let me talk to brands and goroth first, easier to borrow from them if they have one.

If not I'll PM you!
