Demonic Machines Erica’s Trip Boosted Octave Fuzz Guitar Effect Pedal
This is Erica’s Trip, a groovy boosted octave-up fuzz with a two-stage boost so that you can get the subtle effects of a ringing octave over your playing, or you can boost it all to hell until you’re seeing little green men.
- There aren’t many, as you may have noticed. However…
- Flipping the BOOST switch up will give you a huge power boost.
- Flipping the SUPER switch will give you even more of a boost.
- An internal trimpot to adjust the level of the boost.
The Erica’s Trip circuit is based loosely on the classic Dan Armstrong Green Ringer octave fuzz. However, they found that the circuit, although classic, lacked the “umph” that modern players need in a fuzz. To fix this, we added a toggle-able two-stage boost circuit to the front. This way, you can get the classic sounds of the Dan Armstrong circuit, or you can get a melt-your-face-off clanging boosted octave fuzz!
The base green ringer-style circuit is most responsive when playing past the 12th fret. With the boosts engaged it doesn’t matter much, it’ll make fuzz.
Erica’s Trip is a paragon of simplicity: no knobs, just three switches to give you three distinct flavors of octave fuzz.
