SICLONE Silicon Chaos Initiator

Embrace sonic anarchy.

Probably the most versatile fuzz in the world. The SiClone was the first pedal produced by Zander Circuitry, and it’s still going strong. There’s always room for improvement though, and the latest version of the SiClone is more versatile and more chaotic than ever. A knob-fiddler’s dream, the SiClone makes fuzz flexible. And it can take you from vintage low-gain sounds all the way through to complete and utter sonic annihilation.

The SiClone started life as modified ‘factory-style’ fuzz circuit, but over the years it’s blossomed into something completely different. Today, it’s an eight-knob monstrosity packed with all the buzz, fizz, and wail that you need, plus plenty of chaotic, unexpected surprises that you never knew you had to have.

With the SiClone, you’re in control of the chaos. Eight controls is a lot for a fuzz pedal, and they make it possible to dial in whatever sound you’ve got in your head – no matter whether that’s a ripping 60s lead tone or something completely unique that didn’t exist before you coaxed it out.

A silicon fuzz with a difference, the SiClone goes well above and beyond simple gain and volume knobs. The extra controls make it easier and more intuitive to pull a wide range of different tones from the pedal, without having to mess around with different battery voltages or combinations of pedals to get a specific sound.

The additional controls that you’ll find on a SiClone are:

  • Shunt: A gate control of sorts, that tames any unpredictable or unwanted feedback for a sharp, stuttering decay.
  • Squash: Compression on the signal’s attack, which creates synth-like effects when turned up.
  • Starve: Restriction on the amount of voltage supplied to the circuit, to easily replicate the sound of a perfectly drained battery.
  • Bright: A tone stack control made up of a high-pass and a low-pass filter for added EQ tweaking.
  • Body: Restrict the amount of low-end frequencies that pass through the circuit.
  • Punch: Alter the mid-range characteristic of the signal for even more tonal control.

To add to the flexibility, the Bright and Punch controls can be bypassed with the second footswitch, for a full, fat sound that’s rich with mid-range frequencies. This is set to a higher output for a boosted level, but there’s an internal trimmer if you’d prefer to set your own balance between the two output levels.

All of the different controls on the SiClone bring their own magic to the equation, but it’s a cohesive organism. Altering one part of the circuit will affect the whole thing, so dive right in and start experimenting.

The SiClone has eight controls to help you initiate complete silicon chaos:

  • Level: Output volume
  • Fuzz: Gain control
  • Shunt: Circuit gating
  • Squash: Attack compression
  • Starve: Voltage restriction
  • Bright: Tone stack control
  • Body: Low-frequency blend
  • Punch: Mid-range control

Then there are the two footswitches:

  • Fuzz: Turn it on and off
  • Tone off: Bypass the Bright and Punch controls

The SiClone also features both momentary and latching switching, which means you can hold down one of the footswitches to temporarily engage an effect and then release it to return to normality.

Not to mention:

  • Top-mounted in/out jacks
  • Power requirements: 9V DC (center-negative) supply
  • Current draw: 120 mA

Dimensions:

  • (W)67 mm x (L)122 mm x (H)60 mm

Please don’t try to power this pedal with anything other than a 9V DC supply. If you do, your shiny new pedal might stop working, and nobody wants that.
