Truth II series fuzzes are based on classic 60’s two transistor circuits, blending vintage tone with modern flexibility. Truth II takes off from Truth V1 and adds a Fuzz control along with an external bias control, giving you access to a myriad of fuzz tones! Starting at spitty over-biased tones, around 12 o’clock is the “normal” bias setting, then finally as you turn it reaches an under-biased setting that leans towards pinched horn sounds. The simplicity of these fuzz circuits makes for a very dynamic and expressive experience, allowing for lower gain tones and cleanup with guitar volume knob and right hand attack adjustments. A third control, a simple volume, allows for fine tune adjustment over the output.
Based on the classic FuzzFace, the bias control on Truth Face adjusts Q2’s transistor voltage, widening or tightening the grain of texture until finally a louder, spitting blown out voice takes over with excellent cleanup throughout the entire sweep. Adjusting the bias control around 12 o’clock is your stock FuzzFace setting. Truth Face is the fattest sounding with the most low end, and has the best guitar volume cleanup in the Truth family. Available in both Silicon and Germanium.
Truth fuzzes are built on a custom PCB with a super clean layout with New Old Stock transistors and components used throughout. 9v isolated power, top jacks, LED indicator and true bypass stitching used on all versions. Parts and enclosure color may vary based on availability.
