Hello, Effects Fans!
Today we announce our new Buzz Drive module. Our Buzz Drive is available in several configurations that compare to two versions of the Craig Anderton Tube Sound Fuzz, the Moosapotamus Tube Steak Fuzz, an unnamed Japanese overdrive circuit, the Way Huge Red Llama, the Way Huge Fat Sandwich, and the Mad Professor Stone Grey Distortion.
What do all of those effects have in common? They all achieve their overdrive, distortion, and light fuzz tones by using CMOS inverter chips instead of op amps or transistors. Inverter chips give a unique tube-y sounding drive with good sustain. Another characteristic of their tone is that it stays nice and articulate without getting flubby when there is a lot of bass in the signal. Most overdrive and distortion effects trim off bass to prevent muddiness, but that isn't as big of an issue when inverter chips provide the drive. As a result, these configurations tend to work well for bass.
Since there are so many configurations, along with several options for modifications, we won't cover all the details here. You can see all the info about our Buzz Drive module at: Buzz Drive. Or look for it in the Overdrive Modules section under Products -> Modules -> Modules By Type.
