these will answer any quick questions you might have. If not, please

refer to the ordering
page for more information.
Question: Will you ship overseas and if so how much?
Answer: Yes we will ship overseas, thats not a problem. Please
contact us reguarding S&H rates to your particular country. Do
not use the automated PAY PAL portion of our site instead
send email to: email@example.com and request a quote. Many times
we will be able to work out some sort of deal to help you with
the additional costs, so please ask!
Question: How do your units work with other effects pedals?
Answer: Very well! We have build our pedals with the best of vintage and
current design practices in mind. In so doing, we have designed our equipment to
be usable in conjunction with other effects pedals giving the user
a greater set of tonal paints to musically work with.
Question: Whats the difference between the sound of the Fuzz Drive G2 and
the Ultra Drive?
Answer: Well its night and day...they both have very different intended uses.
The Fuzz Drive G2 is more touch responsive but will give you less overall saturation
of fuzz/od, it gives you more of your guitar and amps character and brings them
to life. It will not overpower your tone, but add to whats already there...feed it
some blues and you will be in sonic Nirvana. The Ultra Drive is ment to be give
you huge crunch and saturation, it will dominate your amp and take over with its
germanium distortion. The unit is more like a Muff on steorids, giving you singing
sustain. If your into VERY heavy stuff go with the Ultra Drive, if you like
the blues or that style of tone the Fuzz Drive G2 is for you.
Question: Can I call you with questions?
No, I don't accept phone calls anymore, there are not enough hours in the day. If I take
calls, then I'm late on pedals and that just makes other people mad. Due to the bulk of communications
I get, email is the only source I can currently offer with my present staffing. After you email
us you can send us your number and if we feel we cannot get what we need via email then
we will give you a call. This is for the best really, more customers get helped faster and
I have a record of everything we talk about and decide to do.
Question: Where are your distributors located?
Answer: See our links page for a list of our current vendors
here in the USA and overseas.
Question: I bought a Fuzz Drive with a Diamond Face plate, is this a real Fuzz Drive?
Answer: The Diamond face plate Fuzz Drives were prototype units and there were very few that found their way into circulation. The majority of them are marked prototype, but some are
not. These were built to test design concepts and have hand etched PCB's. They are a bit
rough in their construction when compaired to todays build quality, but are on par as far
as tone goes. These units are not Fuzz Drive G2 units, many design and tone tweeks
seperate the G2 from these early test units.
Question: My Diamond Face Plate FD has 6 internal switches, how do I set these?
Answer: At all times 1 switch from ranges 1-3 and one switch from range 4-6 must be "on".
The Factory settng on this unit is, 12 and 56 on, 34 off. Other settings are 1 and 6 on, the rest off, this will give you a gain boost and less drive. Set just 3 and 4 on and the rest off to get
the maximum amount of drive and fuzz from the pedal. The user should experiment with the pedal
to see what settings work best with their setup.
Question: What type of amp sounds best with your pedals?
Answer: Our units will sound best on tube driven amps, but will work fine
with transistor amps as well. Most overdrives tend to work best with tube amps
as they clip in a manner that the ear interperts as more musical.
Question: How do you ship your pedals?
Answer: We use USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation unless prior arrangements
have been made. We believe in recycling shipping materials as well, so whenever possible
we reuse boxes and packing materials. This saves cost for everyone and is better
for the environment. In this manner we dont have to pass the price of bubble wrap on to you.
