Pressure is a finely tuned fuzz originating from the lineage of the three-knob Tone Bender. It has a thick sustain, but maintains clarity in your notes and chords, making it appropriate for a variety of styles. Or as I like to think of it, it can do both Neil and doom - not to mention shoegaze, etc..... The circuit has been tweaked to allow a wider spectrum of tones via expanded ranges of the treble knob and user-friendly external bias knob. It also gets quite loud.
Like many other vintage fuzz circuits, Pressure loves to have the fuzz knob all the way up. There are some nice other textures to be found below that point, but don't hesitate to go full tilt.
Turned all the way down, the fuzz is at its loudest and thickest. As the knob travels up, the low end becomes tighter, the midrange shifts, and the fuzz character develops. With the bias knob all the way up the fuzz becomes spitty and fizzy. Suggested starting point is around 9 - 10 o'clock. Larger changes affect the output volume, so adjust accordingly.
Fine tune the brightness of the fuzz. Set higher for more wide-open and modern sounds. Lower for thicker tones. Suggested starting point is 3 o'clock.
