No Op-Amp chips, all NPN and MOSFET transitors for more musical gain.
Unlike other fuzz effects that have several stages of transistors with clipping diodes cascaded into one another, the Angry Sparrow Tone Box has only one clipping stage.
The result is a more musical fuzz tone that is versatile and dynamic. The Deluxe version has a three band passive tone-stack for greater tone shaping.
The controls are pretty self-explanatory, however here are some tips for getting the most out of the device.
This controls the overall output volume of your Angry Sparrow. Be aware, this device is capable of a
very large volume boost
to your signal.
Make sure not to overload other effects or your amplifier!
SINGLE TONE CONTROL:
This is a passive low-pass tone control. Very similar to what is on your guitar/bass.
Most of the time you will leave it wide open (full clockwise), just like most players do with their tone control on their instrument.
However, it can be very useful to tame the highs on a very bright amp, or if you want a darker tone at higher gain settings.
The Angry Sparrow Deluxe's tone-stack is a three band passive EQ that is interactive.
In order to get the results you want, keep in mind that the controls only subtract from the signal. The tone-stack is basically removed from the circuit with all controls at full clockwise.
Also, the Middle control will assume more of the high and low frequencies as you reduce the Treble and Bass controls. Decide which frequencies you want more to add, and reduce the other controls.
Much time and effort was put into exactly how the gain control functions.
At the lowest (counter-clockwise) settings, there will be very little change from your original sound, only a little compression and a warming of the tone.
You can set the volume higher and use the pedal as a warm-boost.
As you increase the gain, you will find dozens of musical overdrive/distortion/fuzz tones that work with more complicated chords and harmonies than you would expect from a circuit of this type.
Your Angry Sparrow can use a standard 9V battery, also the jack on the rear accepts a standard 2.1mm (BOSS type) AC adapter.
Make sure the center pin is negative. Using the wrong polarity will not harm the pedal, however it will not function.
