The Perfect Fuzz
Vlad M, 23.02.2018
The letter that came in the box didn't lie, this is the perfect fuzz.

It's set up to have the proverbial 'volume' dimed, and the only knob you get is a bias knob which controls the sag of the fuzz.

The input's buffer is transformer based, so your guitars pickups don't affect the fuzz circuit inside. I have the impression there's also some kind of compression circuit on the input because when playing with the volume almost rolled off on the guitar, it sounded like it did compressor things, but it may have been my imagination. Normally, you don't notice it.

I've tried it out with single coils (T-style and Strat), humbuckers and active EMGs and overall the pedal's pretty responsive to the volume&tone knobs on the guitar and how hard you play. The EMGs are a bit too loud so I have to really turn the volume down on the guitar.

It really shines when playing slide. It gives you that loud and trumpet-like tone that works great with that style.

To note, this is still a fuzz pedal ?even though it's a magical-simply-works one? and you need to work your volume, tone and playing to get the best tones out of it.

Get this pedal if you were always frustrated by how finicky fuzz pedals usually are.

Brachial
Progalt, 21.08.2020
Der Name des Herstellers ist hier Programm, denn der Erupter zerstört alles. Für die Gitarre ein sehr geeignetes Fuzz, sofern man es mit der Regler-Einstellung nicht übertreibt. Am Bass setze ich noch einen sehr tief eingestellten Overdrive davor und drehe den Regler des Erupters sehr weit auf. Ultra-Böse! Man muss schon in der passenden Band spielen, damit die anderen Mitmusiker so ein Beben dulden ;) Einfach nur brachial das Ding.

Peut-être trop pointue (pour moi!?)?
Monsieur Simon, 11.05.2020
La palette de son sur toute la plage du seule potard est intéressante, mais je ne suis pas parvenu a réellement m'approprier cette pédale... Je suis arrivé à quelques fulgurences dans le son mais globalement, j'ai du mal en tirer le meilleur parti dans un morceau...
Elle n'est peut-être pas adapté au guitariste trop novice que je suis :(

Name ist Programm

Egal welcher Amp und welche Gitarre ich mit diesem Ding teste: Es klingt einfach PERFEKT.

Ich liebe die Einfachheit von diesem Ding. Die Einstellung mit dem Bias auf 12 Uhr ist genau das, was ich mir immer von einem Fuzz gewünscht habe. Klingt einfach richtig fett!

Für so ein brutales Fuzz ist der Erupter extrem leise, wenn man nichts spielt. Kein Brummen und kaum Rauschen.

Zur Lautstärkeanhebung: Mich hat es überrascht, wie laut das DIng ist und habe mir im ersten Moment einen Volume Regler gewünscht. Bis man es mit der Band spielt! Im Mix braucht ein Fuzz mehr Lautstärke, damit der Gitarrensound trotz der starken Kompression durch den Fuzz-Effekt noch durchsetzungsfähig bleibt. Ich finde, die Lautstärkeanhebung ist deshalb wie der Rest auch perfekt.
