Introducing The ARC Effects B3 Fuzz

It's been a long time in the making but my first official release is ready for you fine fuzz freaks :)

The ARC Effects B3 is a modern take on the Baldwin Burns Buzzaround fuzz pedal of the 60's. At it's
core are 3 matched germanium transistors which allow this pedal to achieve an incredible range of
vintage and modern fuzz sounds with impeccable clarity and ample volume. The range spans from
Bender type sounds to near Muff territory with a LOT less background noise and a much higher degree
of dynamic response. Want a chunky rhythm or wild high gain gated sound? Done. How about something
for old skool Zep or a long sustaining lead tone? Not a problem. I'm yet to find another classic fuzz
circuit that has the range this one has. The B3 takes over where the original left off with the addition
of a voltage converter that allows this pedal to be used with all standard negative ground 9v power
supplies. No need for a battery or any special power supplies and this CAN be daisy chained with other
standard pedals.

Specs:

-Matched trio of germanium transistors
-Top quality components throughout including Philips/BC Electro Caps
-Hand cut and soldered veroboard construction
-Internal voltage converter so this can run on a standard power supply and be daisy chained
-1590BB enclosure powdercoated with a durable black texture finish and engraved aluminum control plate
-True Bypass Switching
-Neutrik jacks, Alpha Pots, and DC Jack

I have the first short introductory run of 5 of these ready to go EXCLUSIVELY for ILF'ers For $170
shipped CONUS / $185 shipped International

Anyone interested can contact me at ARC-Effects AT Hotmail.com for purchasing information while I
build my website
Please use this email address to contact me rather than PM as my PM box gets full
quite often.
