Coppersound Captain Hook Octave Fuzz w/Boost #10 of 70



"With our builds, we try to blend ease of use with tweak-ability. From every knob sounding good at every point on the dial, to artwork that takes creative ideas and implements them in a simple and expressive way, to top-mounted jacks and dual footswitches on all standard production line pedals...we like to create versatility mixed with smart layouts." - Alex Guaraldi

Captain Hook is a 2-in-1 Octave Fuzz with an independent clean boost inspired by Coppersound artist, Zacharie Defaut (aka, Zacharie Hook). 

Zacharie was looking for a particular fuzz sound, one based on the famous Octavia. Coppersound had already begun working on a transformer-based octave fuzz when the dialog started. After the base circuit was laid done and tuned, the tone section was incorporated next. From there, a JFET boost network was placed on the input of the fuzz circuit. This helps to slam the front end for extra sustain and cut. 

Coppersound's Gravity Bomb boost was added last, taking cues from their Foxcatcher overdrive, the player can select which circuit is placed first in the signal path via a mini-toggle switch - a nice touch to be sure! 

The Captain Hook is a limited run - only 70 will be made! Grab it before they're gone!
