The WTF Fuzz is the fuzz for people who don’t like fuzz! Get mild OD sounds all the way to crazy random octave fuzz. You can achieve sounds similar to a trumpet or trombone as made famous by Paul Trombetta, who created this circuit for Rockett Audio Designs.
- Boost: The boost knob is essentially an A/B volume. We did it this way so that gain structures are not affected. This allows you to achieve more volume for solo boosts and such. The WTF is very sensitive to gain structures in order to achieve sounds such as the “trombone sound”. If gain were to be added it would alter the desired sound when engaged.
- Volume: The volume not only affects the output but the louder it is, the thicker it gets.
- Bypass: The bypass switch engages the pedal.
- Gain: The gain knob not only affects the amount of gain but also is critical and specific for achieving the “trombone sounds”. The gain knob, in conjunction with the WTF knob, can create some pretty crazy sounds!
- WTF: The WTF knob is the heart of the beast! You can go from a very smooth, soulful and mild OD sound all the way up to crazy, random, low octave sounds. Dial it in just right, along with the gain knob, to achieve those awesome “trombone sounds”!
- LED’s: The LED’s indicate the bypass mode and the boost volume control.
The switch in the middle of the pedal is the EQ switch. When switched to the right the sound is the darkest and smoothest. When switched to the left the EQ setting is neutral and when switched in the middle it is the brightest. This is an extremely useful feature to pair the WTF with any given amp. The darkest setting works very well with Vox style amps. The setting to the left works very well with Fender and Marshall style amps and the setting in the middle works well with dark amps or high gain amps.
Power SupplyAll J. Rockett Audio Designs pedals operate off of the standard BOSS type 9 volt adapter or a single 9 volt battery. The power input is a 5.5 mm x 2.1 mm jack with the positive voltage on the outer sleeve. Using an external power supply will automatically disconnect the battery. Disconnect the input jack to preserve battery life when not in use or when not used with an appropriate, external power supply.
