The Benson Amps Germanium Fuzz Pedal is the first fuzz pedal with automatic thermal bias technology. The bias of the transistors in this pedal is automatically regulated by a circuit that gently warms the transistors to a preset operating point using analog components, and ensures a consistent sound, no matter the external temperature.
  • Two Germanium 2N527 or 2N404 Germanium Transistors are graded for gain and leakage, and carefully matched and set up in the ubiquitous 60's circular fuzz topology, ensuring great sounding tone
  • LED indicators let you know when the transistors are warming up to increase their hFE (transistor gain) and when the bias point is shifted to the correct voltage
  • Gain circuit has been tuned to be used as a rich sounding clean boost, an overdrive, all the way up to an aggressive fuzz with some octave overtones
  • Class A buffer in the very input of the Germanium Fuzz feeds a Jack Orman style passive pickup simulator circuit (an audio transformer set up as an inductor, a resistor, and a capacitor), ensuring seamless use with other pedals and your guitar's volume knob
  • Solar White finish ensures optimal thermal performance under direct sunlight
