Sunsine Audio has announced the Vanishing Point - Dual Gain Stage Silicon Transistor Fuzz, which they tell us features high-quality components and true bypass switching, designed for both traditional and electronic musicians. A spokesperson had this to say...
"The Vanishing Point fuzz is extremely sensitive to your instrument controls including volume, tone, pick-up selection etc. It can deliver both soft clipping (creamy tube-style distortion) as well as hard clipping (square-wave fuzz distortion). Roll the Shape and Fuzz knobs, or your guitars volume knob back and you will find a slightly distorted and boosted classic overdrive sound, bringing to mind pushed pre-amp tubes. Crank the knobs up and it smears into a velvety chainsaw fuzz, chopping the guitar signal into a squarewave and delivering shades of late-60s nostalgia. Additionally, turning the volume knob up provides enough additional gain to overdrive the first stage of an amp. Stomp the effect off, and you have your original signal, unaffected in any way.
Designed with a very wide frequency response range to accommodate guitars and basses as well as synthesizers, drum machines, vocals, iPads and just about anything else - this pedal does not weaken your bass frequencies. Perfect for rudely smashing up beats or adding some analog grit or bite to any signal."
Vanishing point is manufactured in the USA utilizing high quality parts. Entirely hand drilled, wired and assembled, including testing and selecting "matched" transistors to ensure quality and consistency. Each unit is numbered, signed and dated and comes with a One Year Service Warranty on all electronic parts.
