RED WITCH FAMULUS Overdrive/Distortion Pedal - New!
The Famulus is a distortion/overdrive pedal with two totally separate, parallel circuits inside.
Each circuit has it’s own distinct voicing. You are able to blend between the two for any conceivable combination. Mmm. Unique tones...!
- Volume: Controls the overall output of the device – the output of both circuits are controlled in parallel by this control
- Tone: This is more like a presence control than a tone ( don’t ask why we didn’t call it presence) – and like the volume dial both circuits run through it – a parallel tone control
- Gain A: This sets the distortion/OD level of the first circuit – it’s a really biting, crunchy sound with masses of dynamic scope – set it really low and the guitar sounds almost clean, wind it fully clockwise and you’re suddenly moved to uncontrollable head banging, power chording, 8th note chugging, metal.
- Gain B: This sets the distortion /OD level of the second circuit. This one is bite-y too but it has a fat mid range punch and spank. Like it’s brother, Gain B can clean up and then get down and dirty when turned clockwise
- Alchemy: This is where things get rather interesting. The alchemy control enables you to blend between to the two separate circuits – Fully anticlockwise gives you only Gain A, fully clockwise gives you only Gain B. Set it anywhere in between and you are now creating your own unique combination. Now try this (You can’t see it, but I’m actually shaking with anticipation...) set Gain A to a really clean setting – around 7 o’clock, then set Gain B to a dirtier setting, round 12 o’clock, now set the Alchemy control fullycounter clockwise. Now play – you’ll just hear the clean sound of Gain A. Now gradually wind the Alchemy control around clockwise – to say 9 o’clock – LISTEN! Clean and dirty! Dial up any variation of the two channels and their respective gain levels - an almost limitless palate with which to create your own unique sound!
- Footswitch: Bring the effect into the signal path by clicking this one. True bypass switching.
