After a year of development, testing every transistor obtainable and painstakingly listening to every component available for this pedal… the Third Stone was born. The key to the tone of the pedal is the natural midrange, control over the bass, and the incredible feel. The mid-range will cut through better in a live performance. Inspired by the Fuzz tones of the 1960’s the Third Stone was designed to be the most organic and versatile fuzz made.
Transistors are Si and temperature stable
High-end capacitors and carbon composition resistors
Premium, plated through the hole PCB
EXP = Tones are warmer, less gain, and more organic.
Axis = Tones are more aggressive with higher gain.
Mid = Boosts the mid-range.
Bass = Opens up the bottom-end.
Sun = Gain Adjusts the level from subtle to over the top, explosive fuzz tones.
Earth = Tone Controls the amount of bass attenuation. A counterclockwise rotation will decrease the bass allowing for more midrange and a tighter bottom end.
Volume - The volume knob functions as the master on/off for the fuzz circuit battery so you do not have to unplug the input jack when not in use.
