Distortion Gesamtkunstwerk! i know ;
it IS a little bit confusing and unusual and too
much informationon on first sight ! - forgive me -
i think artistic , ha ha . i
love conceptual art as much as
improvising with happy incidents . i do everything myself : from circuits to boxes , drawings to websites , from testing to
shipping; because this is my baby and i
enjoy every single step
of the process. you might have to wait some time for your ma-
chine,because i dont want to grow bigger and become what im
not : - small industry - and at the end of the day spend
the day with what i love and always did:create playfully and
inspired by the magic of the moment. u may not choose
spend a lot of
money on one thing. you may prefer to buy
two or three things instead and sell them again. i under-
stand because i am just like you . please consider that
handmade one-ofs (unica) take much more time
than printed circuit boards (pcb) . they sound
and feel different. I m building them on
purpose the very old - school
hand-wired - point to point, w/
extra bold solid core, high
quality long lasting
parts & finest
all fluxxies get boiled in the magic pot .
how can it sound natural,
if it isnt done naturally ?
is all through pure analog
( discrete ) transistor classA design; point to point free-handwired (no pcb) ,
wired 3D - similar to a handwired Tubeamp ,
mechanical bypass , high quality, unavailable or
ultra rare Germanium (Ge32) NOS Transistors , nos
Silicon ( Si14) Trannies and Germanium point-contact
Diodes from the last century and my private treasury ;
which took many years of research , purchase , comparison ,
learning , listening and collecting excellent and extraordinary
sounding components that help define these organic sounds .
all circuits are protected against Dc peaks and false polarity .
fluxmachines are hand made with time for detail.
with box-mounted potentiometers , switches and jacks .
hand - painted , laquered , drilled , sanded , carved
stamped , polished , tested , played , calibrated .
- made for the pedalboard - NO Batteries -
9V Dc center ground . use stabilized ,
toroidal power supplies for
best performance .
i've been onboard w/ torn for most of his 2+year fuzz
this one takes the cake. so satisfying to play.

point-to-point handwired, Ge fuzz that sounds and responds
a fuzz face designed by a slightly crazy genius. Which is to
super responsive, tons of presence, and huge range with
the controls and your guitar`s controls. Wonderful. nick jaffe __________________________________

A unique and versatile fuzz with an emphasis on rich but
cutting tones with tons of bass available. Amazing on
guitar, baritone and bass. nick jaffe __________________________________
your pedals are great and you deserve all the accolades you
can get . things like the Bird Box will be polarizing
but i guess all art is , right? brett kingman 2015

"Endlessly curious about the guitar’s sonic range, Harvey Valdes plays with pushing its potential. ... ,
his score for Utopians, which premiered at the 2011 @
Berlin Film Festival, had “one of the most long lasting guitar
improvisations since (Neil Young’s score for) Dead Man.” http://www.harveyvaldes.net
