Lunar Module Mini Deluxe
Edgy, Aggressive Silicon Fuzz
The Skreddy Pedals™ Lunar Module was designed for "that" certain silicon fuzz tone guitar solo I fell in love with on a best-selling 1973 album. I intentionally voiced this thing aggressively so it will cut through any mix. Very satisfying and addictive "vintage" fuzz tone.
Unlike typical silicon fuzzes, which can sound thin and raspy, the Lunar Module has a dark, brooding character.
Classic late 60's/early 70's fuzz tones with extra control, versatility, and added noise reduction. Using 3 transistors instead of 2, a pre-distortion bass control, and a post-distortion treble control, the Lunar Module yields a multitude of uses.
Old-School Fuzz in a New, Modern Design
Great classic silicon fuzz tones
Gets along with other effects
Reliable, consistent, and controllable--quite useful and not touchy or temperamental
Huge range, from tight, aggressive overdrive/distortion to spitty, sustaining, slightly sick fuzz
Of course true bypass, LED, DC power, and small size
Volume This sets the output volume. You can adjust your Skreddy Pedal to roughly the same volume as your bypass signal (i.e.; “unity gain”) or you can boost your signal for a fatter tone.
Fuzz takes you from gritty, touch-sensitive overdrive all the way to aggressive, saturated, slightly sick fuzz. Warning: it can get noisy at high settings.
Body aka Sharpness dials in the amount of bass going into the fuzz section, for everything from tight overdrive to full-voiced distortion to thick, nasty fuzz. Warning: it can get noisy at low settings.
Brite aka Presence trimpot accessible via a hole in the left side of the pedal. It's set somewhere around 75% or so by me, and you can get more brilliance and “hair” or make it darker and smoother, to suit your amp and taste.
Range aka Pre-Gain trimpot accessible via a hole in the right side of the pedal. It sets the gain of the input transistor. Turned all the way up, the Lunar Module will be fuzzier and more aggressive, but also noisier. Turned lower, there will be a darker, tamer response. I tend to like it about 20% backed off from max.
