Three original flavors of outrageously FAT analog distortion.

The Pigtronix OFO Disnortion stomp box features a touch sensitive Overdrive, Fuzz with 6 different filters and frequency-doubling, Octava. Each effect is an original design and can each be used independently or in combinations to forge a tremendous range of musically responsive distortion sounds. The unique magic of the Pigtronix OFO Disnortion is parallel Fuzz and Overdrive, allowing you to pile on the gain without sacrificing clarity, dynamic response, punch or low end. Well voiced tone and shape controls allow you to focus each effect on its own frequency range. The Octava effects pedal is wired in series before the Overdrive and Fuzz, allowing the guitar pedal to produce a unique type of gated, gnarly grind that is absolutely devastating. A buffered output provides a clean signal for parallel processing or direct recording.

Overdrive—There has never been an Overdrive quite like this. The Pigtronix Overdrive responds to the dynamics of your playing using a proprietary, 5-stage gain architecture that retains the natural tone of your instrument, while gradually breaking up as you play louder. The circuit is so touch sensitive, it has been described as " . . . more tube than tube." You must hear it to believe it! From clean or gritty boost right up through Plexi roar, the Pigtronix Overdrive is the most musical overdrive ever made.

Fuzz—Massive gain, full-bodied sustain, and flexible tone shapes define the fuzz effect. Pigtronix's unique version of diode-clipping provides plenty of compression and controllable feedback while preserving the dynamics of your playing style. The rotary tone control switch provides 6 musical EQ curves: Bass, Scoop, Treble, Smooth, F.A.T., and Full Range. The Pigtronix fuzz can go from clean boost to hair raising, shred fisted, freak-out pandemonium!

Octava—This frequency doubler effect makes the notes you play sound one octave up. A filter control allows you to achieve singing octave up tones without adjusting your guitar's tone control. Stable intervals such as 4ths and power chords result in knarly, tweezed out grind, while other intervals create ring-modulator textures in all registers. The Octava is wired in series with the other 2 effects for harmonic filled lead tones and outlandishly bizarre crunch. Combine the Octava with both fuzz + overdrive and... fuggettaboutit!

Great pedal!

Comments about Pigtronix OFO Disnortion FX Pedal:

This is a fantastic pedal. The overdrive is incredible and very musical. The tone knob operates as a filter instead of the usual boring tone knobs found on overdrive pedals. The fuzz is great and has 6 different settings, all which are very unique and fun. The overdrive and fuzz work in parallel instead of in series, which is more practical. You can even dial in one of the channels as a clean boost. There is a separate clean out which can be used as trigger for other effects or for running a unique stereo setup. The real bonus comes from the octava, which is a crazy-fun effect. All of the channels can be used together or separately and the unit can run from 9-15 volts (even more sonic possiblilities!). Despite its multi-function set-up it is suprisingly small. I saved a lot of room on my pedalboard by using this pedal. Tough construction and bright LEDs round out the package. Oh, and its really quiet!

An odd beast, but still a beast

By carltonh

Comments about Pigtronix OFO Disnortion FX Pedal:

Some people assume this is for major heavy metal, but no, neither the full or overdrive are tight enough for Metallica or Van Halen, but for early metal and classic rock, there are tons of great shades of dirt. This is not advertized as a Dumble-in-a-box, but you can do that too, set the fuzz to shape 3 and roll back the tone on the overdrive, and the blend is better than half of the boutique Dumble-in-a-box pedals. The octave is unique, not for most people, but I've heard some creative players do a lot with it.
