STEREO SILICIUM FUZZ
Fuzzly Bear Twin
Buzz Bunny VS
A Fuzzly Bear circuit with a badass custom design! >>Ich hatte schon reichlich Kontakt zu Fuzz-Pedalen, von Bodentretern von der Stange, bis hin zu edlen Boutique Pedalen, auf meinem Brett haben sich schon zig Zerren getummelt, unter anderem auch der Fuzzly Bear von KMA-Machines und der kommt da so schnell auch nicht mehr weg. Denn gerade als Rhythmus Gitarrist hat man mit Zerren immer ein Problem: Akkorde!<< Check the whole review (GER) by Fabe Van Fuzz /PlainrideREVIEW ↗
This one is made to doom! The Dead Stag delivers a thick and sludgy wall of distortion and fuzziness. We took a Red Army Overdrive - Muff circuit and change the clipping section for a more open and growling voice. It got a three-band Baxandall section for maximum flexibility. Now you can refine your tone, add or cut the lows, mids or highs. To give you a sharper sound flip the left switch to boost the highmids and the top end. If you need a more low gain drive change the impedance with the right switch. It's not just a one trick muff, but the best weapon for doom destructionDEMO ↗
Scotty beam me up! The Spacedrive is a hommage to a low gain overdrive pedal, called "Bluesbreaker" from the big "M". We kicked off the tone filter and raised the gain. The passive tone filter is replaced with an active 2-band Baxandall EQ. Cut or boost the lows or highs for a perfect transparent crunchy overdrive sound. Additionally it has a MOSFET based boost circuit to reach lead territory or to push your amp into saturation. The artwork is made by the customer himself and printed by us.
2-CH EFFECT LOOPER
Our attempt of a dual channel looper. The looper works either passive or active. Engage the active mode and get back your clean signal via the MIX knob and create a tons of new soundscapes. To guarantee a in-phase signal mixing it has a phase inverter to avoid cancelation. You can also use it as a A/B channel switcher.
This Pedal is more an utility than a special effect. It contains an active 3-band Baxandall-type EQ. For those people who do not like parametric EQs or need more than a passive high- or low-pass filter the Elements is the perfect way to go. With the possibility to cut or boost the signal by +/- 15dB you can get every tone you want from an overdrive/distortion/fuzz pedal. For example lower the bass when it becomes to muddy, turn up the mids to get some extra punch.
Thick, splattery, chunky, organic, synthetic. To much words to describe the sound. Take a Tonebender MK2 type circuit and lift it up and overhaule. Add INPUT control to define the strength of the incoming signal and the bass-content, take one toggle to cut off fuzzy, sizzly highs. Take another one to define the bass content on the outcoming signal and here it is: the TV-X Germanium Fuzz.DEMO ↗
BASS TUBE PREAMP
Lots of powerful and loud bassamps are heavy as hell. Ampeg SVT or V4B, Fender Bassman or Sunn'S and so on! Toni Hirsch from the band Bed Asses decided against a heavy bass amp but would not go without that warm and dirty tube sound. Instead he ordered a custom tube driven bass preamp. To deal with the eventually loss of low end, the pedal has a clean blend with a controlable gain to match the signals. set the gain, get back some of the cleans and enjoy the tone.
4-STAGE JFET PHASER
True analog phase shifting based on the well known 4-Stage JFET design. We pushed things further. Define the depth of modulation, turn down the output signal or set up how much your clean signal is mixed with the phase shifted signal. Things get crazy with the switchable and controlable feedback loop.DEMO ↗
A pedal to cover a wide range of soundscapes with a lot of options to tailor the tone. The heart of the pedal is a low to high gain overdrive/distortion circuit with switchable either soft or hard clipping. The second part is a MOSFET based booster to give you an over the top lead sound. Made for Michael Kretzer from the Band Souljam and tones of other musical projects.
The BLD#1 made for Brian Ladwig of the band Amplified Backdoor Creatures is a very organic sounding drive to fuzz pedal. Based on the Screwdriver from Skreddy Pedals, we changed the output stage to tame the gain and alter the frequency response. At the end we got a very nice, raunchy and gritty drive pedal to turn a clean amp into a dirty rock machine.
Take a germanium style treble booster add an input range control, a high cut and you got the essentials of the G.E.Eye overdrive. With the RANGE control is it possible to blend between two different input capacitors. That gives you the capability of a pure treble booster and a fullrange overdrive. To kill the hiss on full gain setting turn up the VOICE control.
The Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster was one of the first guitar effects. Countless guitar players used that booster to push their amps harder and let them break up nicely. The Saturn Booster was manufactured for Matt Casciani from Electric Taurus. Beside the BOOST control it has a switchable output capacitor. It goes from lo-fi to big chunky bass.DEMO ↗
Son of Horus
The Son of Horus was one of the first pedals we made. It was the basic circuit for the BLD#1. The difference are a higher gain range and more low end on tap. It gives you a wonderful harmonic content of overdriven sound. With a medium gain setting you would not expect that you hear "just" a pedal rather then a crunchy marshall tube amp.
4-STAGE JFET PHASER
Here is the beginning of our story. The Phasopia was KMA's first custom pedal that leaves the workshop. Ordered by Franz Kluge from the band Trecker and designed to fits his needs. It is a classic 4-Stage JFET Allpass-Filter design with a mode switch to change the response of the filter notches, SPEED and DEPTH controls to tune in the modulation and a simple volume control to fit the output signal.
