The Black Cat Germanium OD-Fuzz is a versatile, two-channel distortion/fuzz box that combines the Black Cat OD-1 with an old-school Germanium Fuzz Face in one pedal. Each channel of the OD-Fuzz has its own set of controls with separate LEDs for each side. The two channels can be used separately or together in combination. Each effect has its own distinct sound, but the blend of both channels together will yield an incredibly wide range of tonal possibilities, from slightly overdriven to full-blown fuzz. The controls become highly interactive when both effects are engaged.
The Germanium OD-Fuzz is essentially the same as a standard Black Cat OD-Fuzz, except the Fuzz Face side uses two NOS 1960s metal can RCA Germanium transistors. It cleans up well when you roll back the volume on the guitar, and does everything that people have come to expect from a good Germanium Fuzz Face. It compliments the OD channel nicely by offering a bit more contrast in tone and texture.

The fuzz channel is first in the circuit to allow the player optimal control of dynamics and cleanup of fuzz. When both effects are used simultaneously, the Volume knob of the OD channel will function as a master volume control for the whole pedal. Experimenting with many different settings is sure to reveal your most desired tones.
