ARCANE ANALOG DD-V (High Gain Buzzaround)

Image of ARCANE ANALOG DD-V (High Gain Buzzaround)


The DD-V is a high gain Buzzaround style fuzz. The circuit remains true to the original but the addition of a master volume control provides the modern player with much more versatility and utility.

These pedals cut through a mix like an axe through bone. The DD-V has a tight low end, fat mids and sustain for days. The result is a thick and chewy fuzz that provides both vintage and modern fuzz sounds. These have the typical controls of the Buzzaround: Timbre (Tone), Balance (Bias) and Sustain (Fuzz) along with a Master Volume. The Master Volume allows the player to use the full range of sounds available without the potential for a huge unwanted increase in volume ocurring at higher gain settings.

The beating heart of the pedal consistis of three hand-selected NOS germanium transistors chosen to provide maximum fuzz while retaining note/chord clarity and rich harmonic content. The pedal uses only top quality components and sheilded wire for low noise operaton. These are all built on tagboard with wired leads for extra durability. Say no to PCB mounted pots!

Each pedal is unique. I will only be making 13 of these in total and I will be keeping #13 for myself.
