Germanium Boost and Fuzz
The Soul Bomb takes our Mr Soul fuzz and cascades it in to our Gospel Bomb germanium boost.
The Soul side is a fuzzy mix-up of the Vox Bender and an Arbiter Fuzz Face. These two classic pedals have been blended together, resulting in a warm fuzz with more than a hint of rasp and cut when the attack knob is at full tilt. Mr Soul can deliver heavily-driven tones as well as cleaning up superbly with a twist of the volume control on your guitar. Smooth, but with some bite to keep the sound interesting – lots of sustain and killer fuzz!
The Bomb side is a tweaked version of the classic ‘Rangemaster’ germanium boost. This pedal will kick the front end of your amp into high gear and send you into tonal bliss. Any tube amp that has a pretty sensitive preamp section will light up when you drop the bomb. Amps that I like to use this pedal on include older Marshall’s, Vox AC models, Tweed & Blackface Fender’s and pretty much any small combo from the 50′s and early 60′s.
You can run the fuzz or the boost independently or using the Soul in conjunction with the Bomb will create fuzz tones that you swear will blow up your amp. I’m talking HUGE!!!!!
Each Soul Bomb is built by hand from scratch onto vintage-style stripboard, using high quality components and with a high attention to detail. They come loaded with Omeg (UK) or Alpha longlife pots, a heavy duty Alpha switch, Re’an Jacks, carbon film resistors, Konek / WIMA / BC / HL capacitors and other high quality components.
LEVEL – Controls the overall volume of the pedal.
ATTACK – Controls the intensity of the fuzz effect. For a wider range of ‘cleaner’ tones try rolling back the volume control on your guitar.
BOOST – Controls the output of the boost section.
THICKNESS - Progressively adds more low and mid range frequencies to the boost section. Allowing you to go from vintage ‘Rangemaster’ bite to thick full frequency boost.
The Soul Bomb has the added flexibility of a 2.1mm 9v DC socket. Whilst I prefer the tone of the pedal run on a zinc battery, the DC socket is a useful edition to pedal board users.
