Limited Edition

Voiced to Jimi's tone.

The Germanium Experience is for the ultimate Fuzz connoisseur.

Has an incredible feel and amazing, huge organic fuzz tone.


This batch of NKT275 germanium transistors is now extinct. I searched planet Earth for over five years for the real "Holy Grail" NKT275 germanium transistors from the 1960's. In spite of all of the fake, re-stamped NKT275's out there, I finally found a very small batch of the real NKT275 germanium transistors that were within the usable Fuzz hfe gain range window. There are only a small number of pedals made. 


  • The "Holy Grail" NKT275 germanium transistors NOS from the 1960's
  • Transistors are tested for leakage, gain selected, and matched
  • High-end capacitors and carbon composition resistors True bypass
  • Premium, plated though the hole, hard mounted PCB


Controls:

Fire = Gain    Adjusts the level from soft subtle fuzz tone to amazing deep organic fuzz tones.

Haze = Tone     Controls the amount of bass attenuation. Counterclockwise position will decrease the bass allowing for more mid-range and a tighter bottom.

Volume    The volume knob functions as the master on/off for the fuzz circuit battery so you do not have to unplug the input jack when not in use. Note: Some of the earlier GE pedals did not have the on/off switch.

Third Stone II

After a year of development, testing every transistor obtainable and painstakingly listening to every component available for this pedal… the Third Stone was born. The key to the tone of the pedal is the natural mid-range, control over the bass, and the incredible feel. The mid-range will cut through better in a live performance. Inspired by the Fuzz tones of the 1960’s the Third Stone was designed to be the most organic and versatile fuzz made.


  • Transistors are Si and temperature stable
  • High-end capacitors and carbon composition resistors
  • True bypass
  • Premium, plated though the hole PCB


Mode:

EXP     Tones are warmer, less gain, and more organic. 

Axis     Tones are more aggressive with higher gain.

Mid      Boost the mid-range.

​Bass    Opens up the botton-end.

Controls: 

Sun = Gain     Adjusts the level from subtle to over the top, explosive fuzz tones.

Earth = Tone     Controls the amount of bass attenuation. Counterclockwise position will decrease the bass allowing for more mid-range and a tighter bottom end. 

Volume     The volume knob functions as the master on/off for the fuzz circuit battery so  you do not have to unplug the input jack when not in use.

Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio Fuzz  " MOD "  by Berkos FX

Off the shelf I think this is one of the best sounding Octave Fuzz pedals being made today. This "MOD" will warm up the overall tone and make it less harsh. Also lowers the high frequency spike.
