Their products are the result of a lifelong passion and pursuit for better sound. We strive to create products that capture the warmth of classic audio, without the noise or operational issues that so often came with audio products from the vintage era. All of our circuitry is 100% analog, and if appropriate, uses tube technology to ensure the most pleasant reproduction of sound. James Demeter, the principal designer and owner of Demeter Amps has spent years perfecting his circuits, and takes great pride in his work. Everything is handmade in our shop, located in Templeton, California. No part of their operation has been outsourced overseas, and Demeter plans to keep it that way.
The Demeter FUZ-1 Fuzzulator, a different kind of distortion box. The Fuzzulator is the first fuzz box to use the Demeter innovative Tone Pre-Emphasis Circuit. This essentially works as an EQ stage to control and enhance certain frequencies, giving the distorted sound focus. The result is that even with massive distortion your instrument will not be lost in the sonic mud. The Fuzzulator also features an exclusive tight/loose switch which switches between overdrive circuits. The tight circuit uses LEDs as the distortion generator, whereas the loose circuit uses a special combination of silicone and germanium diodes. As with all Demeter products, these units are hand built in the U.S.A. using the finest components available to insure many years of trouble free use. This unit is True Bypass using an ALCO heavy duty Footswitch.
There are three controls on the unit: fuzz, tone and volume, a mode switch to switch between tight or loose, plus a foot switch to bypass the effect, and an LED to indicate effect operation. On the side there is a trim pot to set the overall gain of the unit.
Fuzz: Increases the gain of the distortion circuit, which clips and sustains the signal. Tone: A high cut filter which you can use to make your sound warmer and fatter. Volume: Sets the overall output of the unit. Use this for level matching between the effected and unaffected signal. Tight/loose switch: Switches between light emitting diodes and germanium diodes for the distortion generating devices. LEDs have a tight sound and are a bit louder. Germanium diodes have a looser more classic fuzz sound with less output volume. Trim pot: Sets the gain of the Fuzzulator's output amplifier. It is useful to turn it up if you are using the germanium diodes (loose) as your primary distortion setting. Or you can turn it down if the unit is too hot for your system. There are two inputs on the front side of the unit: a 1/4" input jack on the right and a 1/4" output jack on the left with a battery-ground switch on the input jack. Power supply: 9 volts DC. Either external or internal. For internal power, use a 9 volt battery. To access, remove the four screws on the sides of the unit and pull apart. Note: battery must have at least 7 volts for unit to work! External power supply using mini-plug, tip positive, 9 volt DC regulated (100 milliamp or more).
