The Bi-Polar Octadrive uses the Mustang Overdrive as its base tone, and it has the same controls for volume, gain, bass, mids, and treble, but the Octadrive includes an added footswitch so you can engage an octave up effect that can be used in conjunction with the overdrive. A dual color LED let’s you know whether the effect or octave are on or off.

The Deus Ex Machina is not a subtle fuzz. This thing is thick, and that’s the way I like it. The pedal has knobs for volume, gain, and tone, like a normal fuzz, but it has two features that make it a bit different.

The DreamsICle is derived from my favorite vintage IC based fuzz pedal. This sound has sold millions of records in the past, so I figured why change something that obviously works? This was sort of a pet project for me. Since I can’t easily purchase these fuzzes any more, I figured I would make them available to the masses in a smaller, more durable enclosure. Also, the Tone Bypass switch has been changed from a toggle switch to a footswitch. This way you can use the Tone Bypass switch as a lead boost, if you want, since it will greatly increase your volume and return some of the mids that are scooped when the tone knob is active.

To put it mildly, the R.O.U.S. is a versatile pedal. It’s based off of a classic distortion pedal circuit, but it can do so much more. There is a toggle switch to change the clipping diodes (or completely remove them) so you can go anywhere from a very light overdrive to fullbore rock distortion. Also, I’ve added more EQ options so you don’t have to settle for just having a single tone knob. There are knobs to control bass, treble, and then a texture knob that controls the clipping characteristics, and almost acts as a mids knob. And for those of you who are interested in such things, this pedal does use the coveted LM308 chip.
