AP Analog Audio Sziklai Opto FuzzAP Analog Audio
For sale is an awesome first run pedal from Northampton, MA local pedal builder Asa Patterson under his company name AP Analog Audio. The Sziklai Opto Fuzz is an original design. It uses 4N35 optocouplers arranged in a Sziklai-pair to achieve it's amplification. LEDs on the other side of the optocoupler clip the signal and send it through a single knob Baxandall filter. This pedal has some real serious sweet spots, from Lo-Fi/octave-ish fuzz tones, to hairy fuzzy sounds and all the way up to a really sweet treble forward crunchy distortion when dimed across the board. This pedal is built like a tank and sound absolutely excellent while maintaining a unique tone which is rare in the world of fuzz these days.
