The Prickly Pear Fuzz can produce everything from a warm, creamy overdrive to a sticky, violin-like lead tone depending on the setting of the internal trim pot. Each transistor is tested and checked by hand, eye, and ear. This is a "desert island" pedal, as it can produce sounds ranging from sparkling cleans to lush solo tones.
