Black Arts Toneworks Fnord v3 Fuzz & Octaver
The Black Arts Toneworks Fnord is a octaver / 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 a 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 level of gain beautifully and provides surprisingly clear note definition even on more complex chords.
Very high gain pedal that handles chords well – see the demo here.
This pedal operates on a Standard 9VDC power supply. No battery connection.
