The Pelitaur may seem simple and transparent at first glance. Possibly even a few glances later; but simple and transparent are two things the Pelitaur is not. Or is it?
Now upgraded with soft touch relay bypass, this mythological golden box is made up of two distinct fuzz circuits running in parallel. One side snarls as it spits and sputters out vintage sounding, Velcro-ripping fuzz goodness. The other side, like an old friend, screams with a classic mid-scooped character not unlike a Russian green box. What would happen if you blended these two sounds together? Something very magical! Let's dive into that.
The three controls across the top are labeled: GAIN, TREBLE, OUTPUT. These are very interactive controls.
GAIN: The gain control could be thought of as a "gain texture" control. Or simply a blend knob between the two fuzz circuits. All the way CCW is the vintage styled sputtery sounding fuzz. All the way CW is the classic scooped-mid fuzz sound we all crave.
TREBLE: Here is where things get even more interesting. Since we have two complete fuzz circuits in here why not give each of them their own tone stack? Done.
Dial in a good blended fuzz tone, and get a very interesting tone sweep through the treble control. When boosting highs in one circuit, it boosts the lows in the other.
OUTPUT: Simply an overall output level of the effect.
Internal trim pots to adjust gain level of each fuzz if need be.
Standard 2.1mm 9V negative center power.
8mA current draw
100% hand built, soft touch relay bypass, quality tested
From punchy to girthy, and woofy to articulate this amalgam of fuzz is a work of art. Blending between the modern and fuzz circuits was fun to dial in and is easy to find a sweet spot (or a couple!). The added treble control is very useful if you're looking to *really* cut through a mix. Apparently there are internal trim pots for the gain setting on each circuit, but forget about that. Let this monster sing! I actually won a 2 week rental on this with no plan on purchasing it after the first week. But week two changed my mind. There's something very princess diaries about it in a live setting. I ended up purchasing it to keep her around. All hail the Pelitaur!
