This is a serious noise maker fuzz! If you want something smooth and placid, look elsewhere.
The "Hachihachi shiki kebadate hizumaseki SUPER OSCILLO FUZZ" (88) is a fuzz distortion pedal with its own internal oscillation system. Using a combination of six switches, many different distortion tones can be achieved.
However the main feature of this pedal is the huge variety of oscillations that can be chosen by using any combination of these six switches. The 88 can make an almost unlimited variety of fuzz distortion and oscillation sounds. This is the "SUPER" OSCILLO FUZZ!
The design motif for this pedal is based on Japanese WWII "Zero" fighter planes. Previous pedals are also based on the old naming traditions and designs of Japanese planes, such as the "Hachi roku" (86) and the "Hachi nana" (87). The meaning of this pedal’s name "Hachihachi shiki" (Type 88) is "kebadate" (fuzz), "hizumase" (distortion), and "ki" (machine). So the name translated into English means "FUZZ DISTORTION PEDAL TYPE 88".
