CooperSonic Germaniac Vintage Fuzz
Based on an idea Martin had in the 70's when building transistor fuzzboxes and making mistakes,
this fella goes into some pretty crazy territory:
Mania control – “why is it making that crazy noise?”
With the mania control at zero, Coopersonic have is a simple two-knob germanium fuzzbox, for your vintage 60′s fuzz tones.
If you want to go into more experimental territory, then this is why there is added the mania control. As the mania is turned up, a more vicious fuzz results, with more instability. If you go further the unit will start to self-oscillate and the mania and fuzz controls become quite interactive.
Changing the pickup selector or volume on your guitar will also affect the noises it makes – try it and see…this control is most effective if the Germaniac is driven directly from your guitar rather than after other pedals or in an effects loop.
