Germanium Sweet Leaf Fuzz
The Germanium Sweet Leaf fuzz is more open sounding than the standard silicon version. It can gate and splat depending on how hard it is driven. Lower output pickups will increase the gating, higher output pickups will increase the sustain. It also cleans up way better with rolled off volume than the standard Sweet Leaf. The attached video is of the standard silicon Sweet Leaf, but it'll give you an idea. This version is less compressed and less aggressive... but it's still pretty aggressive.
The transistors, being germanium, are also sensitive to temperature changes. The GE Sweet Leaf is biased for room temperature use. Extreme cold or hot can cause the pedal to gate.
This is a fuzz for those who need a lot of fuzz and volume... it's a one trick pedal... but it's a good trick.
Sweet Leaf now has an internal trim pot if you need to whoa it back a
little... it is shipped at the old hard set levels, but if you have to
you can ramp it down, or better yet, ramp it up.
All my pedals are hand made here in Maine. Each box is hand stamped and
the pedal you receive may differ slightly from the one pictured.
Industry standard 9vlt jack, no wall wart included, no battery option.
