Black Arts Toneworks Fnord v3 Fuzz & Octaver
The Black Arts Toneworks Fnord is an octaver and fuzz-type circuit with some twists.
It blends a scrambler & octaver-type fuzz with a more traditional fuzz/distortion.
- Filter – adjusts between a thicker or thinner sound with more treble on the thin end.
- Fnord – Adjust distortion/fuzz/octave type for different voicings.
- Silence: Controls the amount of “Silence” the pedal creates… or more like a lack thereof.
What does it sound like?
From zipper/Velcro tones to a full-throated distortion, or a combination of the two.
Add sizzle to your leads, make a rhythm sound that harkens back to the days of screwdriver-modified speakers, or a tight lightly gated distortion. If you can’t read between the lines, Fnord!
This pedal sounds mean and the notes have a really cool decay, similar to the way fireworks fizzle out. The pedal handles all levels of gain beautifully and provides a surprisingly clear note definition even on more complex chords.
A very high gain pedal that handles chords well – see the demo here.
This pedal operates on a Standard 9VDC power supply. No battery connection.
