Holey Putsch

Clipping Diodes are the most widely discussed and fought over parts of fuzz pedals and distortions, however, it all comes down to your ear, and whatever sounds the best. That’s where Holey Putsch comes in – it comes standard with a 4 position rotary switch that toggles between the coolest clipping options available.  It features JFET clipping, Zener clipping, Silicon clipping, and White LED clipping. Each of these diodes produce their own unique sound and pattern. The JFET clipping, is a JFET Transistor used as a clipping diode, and the Zener is a diode place reverse in the circuit. These two odd clipping styles give you new, unique sounds for any genre. Even with all these options, this pedal packs tons of output, and enough fuzz to make mouldy bread dry up.
