Hex Fuzz Amplifier

Individual string fuzz or overdrive distortion

Overview:

The Hex Fuzz Amplifier module is quite versatile, creating a range of distortions from gentle overdrive to full-on fuzz.

The circuitry features op amp distortion and/or hard clipping with diodes.  The diodes are user-customizable via plug-in headers on the back of the module.  The module ships with a mix of Silicon and Germanium diodes (four per channel) as a starting point.

Gain controls allow you to adjust the gain from zero to full-scale in the amplified string outputs.

The six individual fuzz outputs are mixed together and presented as a seventh output.  The output mixer amplifier has an adjustable gain of 0.01 - 1.2x (0 - 20dB)

Ideal for guitar or bass single-string processing.

Hand-built in the USA.

Features:
  • User-customizable clipping diodes.

  • Low-noise audio op-amps for optimal AC performance.

  • Adjustable gain or attenuation to zero within each selected gain range.

  • Output mixer with 0-20dB gain.

  • Audio input, through, output headers on the back of the module.  Input normalled to panel jacks

  • Pairs well with 13-Pin Input Breakout, Hex VU Meter.
