Pigtronix Disnortion sports parallel Fuzz and Overdrive circuits, allowing you to pile on the gain without sacrificing clarity, dynamic response, punch or low end. It’s like double tracking your guitar inside the pedal! The Pigtronix Disnortion features three elements: a touch sensitive Overdrive, Fuzz with 6 different filters, and a frequency doubler named Octava. Each effect is an original analog design and can each be used independently or in combinations to forge a tremendous range of musically responsive distortion sounds.
Overdrive – The Pigtronix Overdrive responds to the dynamics of your playing using a unique, 6-stage gain architecture that retains the natural tone of your instrument, adding tube style breakup as you play louder. This circuit is so touch sensitive, you must play it to believe it! From Clean or Gritty Boost right up through Plexi roar, the Pigtronix Overdrive is the definitive musical overdrive.
Fuzz – Massive Gain, Full Bodied Sustain and Flexible Tone Shapes define our fuzz effect. Pigtronix’s unique diode-clipping architecture provides plenty of compression and controllable feedback while preserving the dynamics of your playing style. The rotary tone control switch provides 6 musical EQ curves.
Octava – This frequency doubler effect makes the notes you play sound one octave up. A Filter control allows you to achieve singing octave up tones without adjusting your guitar’s tone control. Stable intervals such as 4ths and power chords result in knarly, tweezed out grind, while other intervals create ring- modulator textures in all registers. The Octava is wired in series before the Overdrive and Fuzz, allowing the pedal to produce uniquely devastating & gnarly tones.
