This is an extreme tone-mangling distortion, adapted from
John Hollis’ ‘Crash Sync’ circuit. It’s the same circuit as that used in the original Dr Freakenstein Fuzz (click here for that page), housed in our own original design steel desk-type
enclosure with true bypass footswitching incorporated.

Also, being the Dr Freakenstein Fuzz, of course it has an assistant called Igor – which is a postage stamp-sized pressure pad that you tread on. This plugs in via mini-jack to either tweak the OSC according to how hard you press, or to adjust the bias of the modulation range; on a fast modulation setting, this can give an effect reminiscent of a bubbling synth, sweeping down from high cutoff to low. Igor is like ‘aftertouch’ on a synth – but for guitarists. It’s a new thing – tiny, cheap, light, and practically no moving parts. One Igor comes with each Dr Freakenstein.

There’s also a meter for monitoring your input signal, plus – for a full gothic ‘laboratory’ vibe, it’s mounted in a miniature steel desk console, complete with knife switch that you throw
to turn it on.
