The Black Arts Toneworks Pharaoh Fuzz is loved by Stoner Rock guitarists. This is an extremely versatile pedal, which will leave your basic guitar sound, as well as your amp tone, intact. The Pharaoh Fuzz' quality components won't mess up your sound, and also work a treat with detuned guitars.
Volume: adjusts the output volume level.
Gain: controls the amount of overdrive/fuzz depending on the settings of the Hi/Lo- and Ge/Si-switches. Things start off with soft break-up at 7 o'clock, and end with deliciously saturated, full-on fuzz at 5 o'clock.
Hi/Lo-switch: presets the level of the input signal. In 'Hi' the signal will distort more easily, while 'Lo' offers you more clean headroom. Ge/Si-switch: a three-way switch, which allows you to add yet more diodes to the fuzz-circuit.
Middle: No additional diodes added, less distortion, more volume.
Up ('Ge'): adds a germanium-diode to proceedings. The sound gets more compressed and lively.
Down ('Si'): this will add a couple of silicone-diodes to the circuit. This setting gives you the most distortion and sustain.
Tone and High: the pedal's EQ-section. Tone adjusts the overall sound, while High helps you to add treble frequencies to even the fattest sounds.
