The Fuzzrocious Heliotropic Fuzz is a ferocious fuzz, truly versatile and very unique and without a doubt one of the best to have come through our doors in the last few years. Every time we have plugged it in we have been (often quite literally) blown away by the sheer power of the tones this pedal can generate. Based loosely around the topography of a Big Muff style circuit, the Heliotropic is a heavily modded Muff style fuzz based around a custom designed preamp that gives you plenty more sustain, crunch and wildly intense fuzz tones. The Heliotropic gives a pushed midrange and powerful low end response, but actually retains the clarity of your playing extremely well even at face melting fuzz levels.
Fuzzrocious Pedals are made by the Ratajski family in Mt Laurel New Jersey, it's a family affair with the husband and wife doing the building and finishing and the kids occasionally doing hand painted pedals.
PREGAIN – determines how hard you will drive the second stage circuit inside the Heliotropic. Roll it clockwise to drive it more.
SUSTAIN – roll it clockwise to increase how fuzzy/sustained the fuzz will be.
VOLUME – makes the output of the circuit louder or quieter.
TONE – fully counterclockwise provides a clanky, trebly tone; fully clockwise provides a doomy, muddy, bassy tone.
