Same as smaller standard Goblin but with top mounted jacks for easier pedalboard spacing.
Designed around two high gain silicon transistors, the Goblin Tone Distorter has intense yet smooth and full-bodied fuzz tone. The EQ response is wide and even with a open broad lift on the full spectrum. The on-board “drive” control can aid the refinement of your desire fuzz tone by either augmenting or diminishing the natural chubbiness and density this circuit type can produce. Wide open the “drive” control will give you maximum bass and gain response further driving the intensity of the fuzz tone produced. Decreasing this control will add clarity and help preserve natural pick attack and picking dynamics and aid interaction with higher output pick-up types.
The Goblin offers superior quality vintage distortion tones delivered in a rugged and cost effective package. Whether you seek those classic early 70's Arbiter fuzz tones or are just seek a fuzz device that has a monstrous sound.
Sounds amazing on bass guitar too! Low gain will give you classic 60s/70s transistor distortion tones. Standard 9v operation so no worries about daisy-chaining with your other effects.
The more intense fuzz tones are to be found in the last quarter of the rotation so only subtle movements are necessary. The less intense fuzz tones found with the dial set at the noon position and below become useful when the pedal is used with an overdriven valve amplifier. Please note: It is totally normal for this dial to produce a slight static noise as it is adjusted.
Runs on 9v standard (boss style) power. Battery clip or power supply is not included. An isolated power supply is recommended.
