We have transformed the Electron Fuzz Custom into 100% full eurorack format. This is a limited run of approximately 10. These panels are made and drilled by hand. They may have tiny imperfections. I’m a bit picky on this subject. I want everything to be perfect so nothing is going out I don’t approve of. As usual I have a couple of “safety” panels set aside. We may make available if all our drilling goes smoothly. We will be having the panel manufactured next. That may increase the price slightly. For now this is in the same laser etched finish like our standard pedals. If you would preferred a perfect CNC milled panel please wait for the final version down the road. I will be laser etching the first run serial no#s on the panel. Also I may make some minor adjustments to the graphic.
The pedal is essentially the same as the “EFCcv euro” pedal with a couple of slight modifications.
I’ve added the GPI (Guitar Pedal Interface) input attenuation. This lets you bump the input down even lower levels to compensate for the hotter eurorack line levels. It also give you the ability to still use it with guitars and standard line level instruments such as external drum machines and synths like with the original guitar pedal. You can literally patch a guitar right in using the proper 1/4″ to 1/8″ cable.
Taking full advantage of the higher voltages available I was able boost the final output of the pedal to full eurorack levels. The “Bleed” (Clean Mix) is now independent of the distortion GPI attenuation. So mix that awesome hi-fidelity signal in with your distortion, or turn it completely off. Its up to you!
I’ve included the original “EFC” output. This is a direct tap of the pre-eurorack EFC guitar pedal. The output is muted when in bypass. The output is lower (like the original pedal) and before the final op amp gain staging. Feel free to plug an output signal in and see what happens. Its an “in” AND an “out”.
This version has conventional knobs. Meaning as you turn to the right the volume increases. The original pedal works in reverse. I will likely change that back when we have the manufactured panel. I’ve always felt the reverse knobs helps break out of the
IMPORTANT: This is a high gain distortion. It will boost any line noise you feed into it. This is most apparent when the x1000 toggle is engaged. You may think your system is quite until you crank that gain up! It will not insert noise into your system, only amplify noise that is already there. This is a byproduct of distortion pedals and is not something I can filter out without affecting the sound. If you have it plugged in and NOT in bypass mode you will hear your systems line noise. This might be an non-issue since its not noticeable while sound is running through it. Naturally when not using it and nothing is plugged into it you wont hear anything. I just like to remind people there are consequences to your actions. Artificially boosting your gain this much sounds great but is not without its artifacts.
It has true bypass just like the guitar pedal. Yeah thats crazy but I left that on for performances.
Just like on the standard pedals there can be potentiometer wiper noise. Most apparent when no sound is running though the pedal.
