DAZATRONYX – TSUCHI FUZZ – Full Germanium version
Fuzz addicts need look no further than the mighty Dazatronyx Tsuchi Fuzz.Hand built to the highest standards in Melbourne, Australia.
Using only hand selected and matched NOS PNP Germanium transistors, the Tsuchi delivers on all levels and offers a much wider range of tonal options than your traditional “one trick pony” fuzz boxes.
This special germanium edition features full germanium construction and is loaded with NOS CV7003 > 2N404 transistors. The CV7003 is purported to be the military spec OC44 used by Analogman.
With four controls, you’ll think of it as like many boutique fuzzes combined in one. The controls are dead simple though and it’s nearly impossible to make a tone that isn’t pleasing to the ear.
BOTTOM BOOST (switch)
Bright, traditional tone on the left, and bass boosted on the right. This can be used if the shape knob is in a very low setting.
This fuzz sounds best when the volume is opened up.
Most Fuzzes have a heavily saturated bottom end. The shape control can tame the pre-bass response and give more definition to the fuzz character to stop it from sounding too flabby. This can help match different pickups.
MASSIVE STATUS LAMP
This will start to glow dim and then turn off as a battery becomes exhausted – before the sound is effected too much – a sort of low battery reminder.
BYPASS FOOT SWITCH
True bypass, of course. That means that the instrument signal remains completely untouched and unprocessed while the pedal is in bypass mode.
FUZZ / PRE-GAIN
As many players prefer to clean up fuzz by rolling back the instrument volume knob, that’s exactly how this works.
There is an internal hidden control on the circuit board to set the pedal bias.
Even though using classic PNP transistors, the Tsuchi does not need to be run on a special isolated supply. It can be daisy chained with other standard type negative grounded pedals. Incoming power is treated for noise rejection and will run with equal response to batteries.
Remove the four base screws to access a 9V battery connector.
To turn the unit off, disconnect the input jack. For best performance use only a battery or a high quality regulated power supply designed for audio use.
