Hyperfocal Fuzz - Retrofit Range
- Visual Vintage Fuzz -
Hyperfocal is where it all started for Bad Penny FX. Now, years later, this unit has evolved into a different class of retrofit. Reinforcement of the authentic,100-year-old box camera is made by a graphically etched 2mm aluminium banding.
Open the rear of the Hyperfocal to take a look at the vintage tag-board circuitry with all-vintage components. The fuzz is a classic germanium transistor fuzz, able to lay-back and clean-up or dish out those vintage screams. No tone control here, to provide the most clarity and volume, and an additional bias control has been implemented, allowing the user to "miss-bias", creating spluttery, gated tones.
Being part of our Retrofit range means that this unit is repurposed from vintage and now unused artifacts from days past. Wired completely by hand and repurposed in-house means a great deal of time and attention goes into this range. High-quality components and vintage waxed cloth wire are used throughout. It requires 9v power, supplied from a standard BOSS type, center negative source.
