The Fredric Effects Utility Perkolator MKII is the latest version of the collectable Interfax Harmonic Percolator pedal from the 1970's, with the kind of user friendly tweaks that only Fredric Effects could come up with. The original Fredric Harmonic Perkolator is a faithful recreation of the vintage circuit, while the Utility Perkolator takes that sound in another direction with far more tonal flexibility. The Utility Perkolator features Russian Germanium transistors that are both higher gain and lower leakage, along with a low pass filter that can remove the high end frequency imperfections associated with the original circuit. The Utility Perkolator MKII has a far more controllable sound, and also includes a switchable ring modulation circuit for octave style sounds, and some DIP switches on the circuit board to remove the low pass filter if required.
The MKII Utility Perkolator is redesigned in a vintage style Fredric Effects wedge enclosure.
Boutique pedals minus the boutique price tag, handmade by local London art rockers and adorned with delicately screen-printed graphics, Fredric stompboxes are durable, high quality, worthy clones of classic rare effects.
