    What Do Silktone Say?

    At the heart of the Silktone Fuzz are two germanium transistors in the classic fuzz face topology, tweaked to get a huge array of tones and fix all the annoyances you get with a typical germanium fuzz. We wanted to nail the awesome tones everybody knows and loves when these transistors are biased to their sweet spot… and also when they’re not. With our active bias monitor you can easily hit them all. Want that oh, so sweet sweet sweet spot? Dial it to ~4.50. Prefer some fat sticky fuzz? Dial it past 7.50. Want spitty gated fuzz? Cool, me too - dial it to ~1.10. ​

    Combine this with the onboard pickup simulator to place this fuzz anywhere in your chain without the normal issues and a cleanup knob to get you into drive territory that rivals the best overdrives out there with beautifully musical germanium color - and you have one of the most useable, versatile fuzzes to date with sooo.. much.. texture.

    Controls

    Vol: Changes the output volume

    Fuzz: This alters the gain of the transistors

    Cleanup: Cleans up the fuzz the higher you push the knob, to go from the cleaner sparkly boost/light overdrive tones a good germanium fuzz face. Also useful when the pedal is placed late in the chain.

    Bias: This is the operating voltage of the transistors, determining how they distort and clip the audio signal. A great starting point for setting bias is ~4.50 - this is the sweet spot most fuzz faces shoot for.

    Classic/Raw Switch: The CLASSIC/RAW switch does two things: set to Classic you have the traditional fuzz face bass filtering and bias ratio between the transistors, set to Raw it removes the bass filter to let the whole signal through and extends the bias ratio of the two transistors by shifting the second transistor up higher for an even fatter, boosted sound.

    Some fuzz settings to note:

    Gated: ~1.10
    Vintage: ~2.50
    “Sweet spot:” - ~4.50
    Fat fuzz: - ~6.50
    Sticky fuzz: ~8:00
