Full-bodied, INTENSE fuzz pedal
Introducing our latest potent sonic disruptor, in a pint-sized package! Renegade is a simple, no frills fuzz pedal with a compact and straight-forward interface. A welcomed complement to our growing line of Mini Pedals. Derived originally from the classic Tone Bender MK1.5, Renegade strays off the standard path, in part due to its integrated bias control. This toggle switch allows the player to easily select between two different bias voltages. The resulting in a classic, full bodied-fuzz tone in the “up” position, and a more modern and gated fuzz in the “down” position.
A hallmark feature of this micro-sized pedal is its long sustain, and an “electric sizzle” as your signal fades. This is especially prominent in the “down” position. The single Master Volume knob has PLENTY of gain on tap, and powering Renegade at up to 18 volts can deliver even more headroom and clarity. The Germanium transistors found in the original Tone Bender circuit have been replaced for high-gain silicon transistors. This allows for a more intense fuzz sound along with biasing stability. Each unit it biased to a very specific voltage before being tested and boxed up. Renegade features mechanical, true-bypass switching. In the off position, the input is sent directly to the output.
Like most fuzz pedals, they can be picky about the impedance that comes before it. Results can vary when placed after a buffered pedal or something like our standalone Buffer. The best practice is to audition Renegade in a few locations in your signal chain. Find a place that best suites your style and make some noise!
