Introducing the Caroline Guitar Company Shigeharu, a pedal that seamlessly combines classic Muff-style fuzziness with the power of a classic overdrive. At its core, Shigeharu employs a unique cascading blend of op-amp and BC184 transistor gain stages, resulting in a tone that delivers the coveted sustain and fiery gain you've been searching for. What sets Shigeharu apart is its unmatched clarity, improved punch, and exceptional definition, no matter where it's placed in your signal chain - even following buffers or wireless units.

But that's not all. The Shigeharu pedal offers an extra layer of tonal versatility with its parallel octave-up voiced fuzz, easily engaged with the Havoc stomp. This addition brings a substantial dose of gritty character to your sound. Inside the pedal, you'll discover two additional controls. The bias/gate control allows you to dial in those broken, spitty tones, giving you even more sonic exploration. Plus, there's a handy slide switch that not only locks the octave-up effect "on" but also converts the momentary function into a convenient kill/mute switch.

It's worth noting that Shigeharu's design was a collaborative effort between Caroline Guitar Company and their friend John Snyder at Electronic Audio Experiments. This partnership emerged because Shigeharu is a beast of a pedal, and sometimes, you need a second opinion to truly appreciate its formidable capabilities.
