“Ultimate Fuzz tone”. 

That’s what Earthquaker Devices state about their Erupter pedal which took over two excessive years in the making. The idea was to create a dead simple, silicon-based Fuzz that works with any guitar, any pick-up configuration and anywhere in the signal chain. We think this mission is accomplished!
The Erupter gets by with just one knob and it’s neither Fuzz nor Level since these settings are pre-fixed. It let’s you bias the NOS silicon transistors or with other words the flow of voltage to the circuit. Dialed counter clockwise the Erupter sounds more gated and authentically resembles the feel of a dying battery. Dialing it clockwise produces a louder, more refined, saturated and sheer explosive tone. At 12 o’clock is a harmonically rich, sweet spot marked by a potentiometer detente.
Fortunately, using the guitars volume to clean up the sound and control the output level works brilliantly.

Hand crafted, all-analog, true-bypass and powered by either 9 volt battery or regulated power supply.
