Introducing the Emanating Fist Electronics ~ DP-01. High quality fuzz tones presented in a compact and contemporary format. Constructed in a rugged 120mm x 100mm x 30mm die-cast aluminum enclosure the DP-01 is a miniaturized offering of our four stage high gain silicon fuzz, the Dope Priest.
The DP-01 features quality hardware and components through-out offering solid performance in both sonic delivery and road worthiness.
Potentiometers feature a conductive polymer track rather than the traditional carbon track for increased performance and lifespan. Our footswitches and audio jacks both feature gold plated contacts for optimal signal transference. The LED's fitted are low drain high brightness types with a wide and easy to see viewing angle. The control surface is functional with bold position markers and flush surface mounting control knobs. Circuit board population features capacitors with a polyester film construction, 1W carbon film resistors and gain selected epitaxial planner silicon transistors. Offering vintage styled tones but with higher modern day specification thus delivering a superb signal to noise ratio.
The EFE Particle Series pedals are primarily designed for use on a pedal board so power is supplied via an external 9 volt dc supply only (not included) There is no facility for a battery inside the DP-01 or any of the Particle Series EFE pedals.
The DP-01 is currently available in three differing circuit configurations.
Based upon a 1972 triangle Big Muff circuit. The 6618 offers the highest gain of the three DP-01 types delivering intense distortion tones with a rich open low end and bright searing treble. The tone control gently scoops out the mids as the control is swung from full bass (right) to full treble (left) offering many shades of musical distortion. The 6618 is the most evenly balanced tonally of the three offering a broad spectrum of fuzz and distortion with distinctly aged flavour. The 6618 features a quad of gain matched BC337-16 silicon transistors and features a high bright yellow LED.
