Catalinbread Giygas Fuzz is a fuzz which fits into any musical style and environment. Three-transistor fuzz circuit gives you a harmonically rich sound with loads of sustain. Versatile EQ controls and Blend control give the Giygas a lot of range.
Loud: Sets output volume level.
Fuzz: Controls the amount of gain. The sound retains its brightness even at minimum gain settings.
EQ: Tilt EQ which is neutral at 12 o'clock. Towards 5 o'clock all frequencies over 900 Hz are boosted and lower frequencies are cut. Towards 7 o'clock all frequencies under 900 Hz are boosted and higher frequencies are cut.
Mids: Active mid boost at 900 Hz. +/-10 db boost/cut.
Blend: Controls the mix between the dry signal and the distorted signal. At 7 o'clock the sounds is 100% clean (no fuzz) and towards 5 o'clock the fuzz becomes more pronounced. Small amount of clean signal helps to keep the sound more distinctive.
