- Fuzzy Germanium Dirt -
Wireless is as vintage as it gets before anyone has to lose an arm and a leg. A classic unit with some additional user control of the often required: bias, and a very slight bass roll-off. It follows an mk3 TB circuit structure and so, highly responsive to input signal strength, while absolutely lighting up when stacked with some overdrive pedals. It uses three, NOS, PNP, NKT275 equivalent, germanium transistors, selected for their gain profiles, and balanced by ear with internal trim potentiometers. Although it runs on negative power, it does not require an isolated power supply due to an internal inverter.
Wireless has all the warmth and charm you would expect from a vintage fuzz pedal. Tone filtering moves the user from dark and low tones, right up to high and cutting. A combination of the input volume and fuzz control knob will either give velocity-sensitive cleans or velcro-peeling spits, taking that break-up further with the bias switch.
Boutique Originals Range
Being part of our Boutique Originals range means that this unit is made completely by hand, requires the most time and patience, and therefore, is of the highest quality Bad Penny FX has to offer. It uses a blend of vintage tone-shaping capacitors and other high-stability modern components, as standard. It is fully internally shielded, with surrounding thick gauge bus wire to provide high-quality grounding. All internal wiring uses vintage waxed cloth wire, commonly used in vintage amplifiers. It requires 9v power, supplied from a standard BOSS type, center negative source. Each enclosure is handmade, in-house, from beautifully grained, English Ash hardwood and 2mm aluminum, marked with a serial number to the back-plate.
The price of this range will increase as other ranges are added to our catalog.

"I have a lot of fuzz pedals, but the Wireless sits in that sweet spot where it rides the line between uncontrollable chaos to lightly driven classic tones. It's so dynamic. If you like a pedal you can control with your guitar volume control, this fuzz is for you".
