Super sweet limited edition version with germanium transistor fuzz circuit, this one sounds even beefier than the original Monterey.
Just, wow! This vintage fuzz really captures that essential 60s/70s vibe that every guitar player has heard and lusted after. Featuring a vintage fuzz, rotary speaker, vibe, harmonic and auto wah, an octave up/down mixed with the expression control you can build a vast spectrum of sounds.
First things first, activate the right switch to give yourself some rockin' fuzz! Designed to give you that rich full-bodied two transistor fuzz. Super responsive and plays well in any pick-up position! This really is an awesome fuzz tone.
Now if you really want to get down and dirty, the Modulation channel offers some serious play time. The Rotary FuzzVibe allows you to add Octave Up or Down, Vibe and Wah and you can mix and match those sounds to your hearts content. This really offers a whirlwind of seriously cool effects. If you don't want the Octave to play its part, simply set it to the middle position.
When you enter the realm of the Fuzz Vibe, the 'Kool Vibe' setting allows you to create some awesome swirling phase and tremolo. Add the Octave for some awesome deep synth-type bass.
The Les Rotary within the Monterey is a real accurate representation of the original cab, all the while bringing a totally fresh feel to it. You can get a sweet match of that iconic sound of an original cabinet speaker. If you want to introduce the Octave, switch the Rate off, whack the Fuzz on and play around with the Octave and Depth controls. So much control over your fuzz!
The Harmonic Wah is yet another excellent aspect of this pedal. It is an auto-wah and a awesome harmonic/trem wah but you do have the option of a foot controlled wah if you wanted to use an expression pedal. Depth control completely rolled back - Wah Mode. If you want to introduce the Depth control, it becomes the Auto Wah which enables you to create an envelope filter sound with your attacking hand. Once you sweep past the center position on the Depth control, you enter the world of the new Harmonic Wah, which gives you a lovely rocking 'back n forth' wah sound ideal for rhythm playing.
