ANALOG OCTAVE UP FUZZ WITH BLEND CONTROL
The SLOB is the BLAMMO! version of the COB, but with a few convenient updates. For those who don't know, the COB, or Clean Octave Blend, was/is a pedal from Prescription Electronics that takes the classic Octavia circuit (used by Jimi Hendrix) and adds more output volume plus a blend control that allows users to mix clean guitar signal with a mid gain analog octave up fuzz tone.
First, we upgrade the old clicky style footswitch to a no-click relay based true-bypass switching system that's rated for 3x as many cycles. Second, we shrink the enclosure and use top mounted in/out and power jacks making it more compact and pedalboard friendly. Then, we match the forward voltage of the signal path diodes to maximize the octave effects analog stang. A beefed up power filtering section cleans up more of the hiss and hum plus a polarity protection diode safeguards against potential damage if the wrong power adapter is accidentally plugged in.
