Source Audio's One Series range covers all the needs of today's guitar and bass players. In any quality line up, you need a Fuzz pedal, for Source Audio, it's called the Kingmaker! Inside this very pretty case in brushed aluminum with a shimmering color, hides 50 years of Fuzz and Overdrive! If you are looking for an ultra versatile Fuzz, the Kingmaker is for you.
Source Audio uses the same platform set up with the Nemesis, the Ventris and others… to create this superb and overpowered machine capable of delivering a whole range of typical Fuzz sounds, from the classic Fuzz Face to the Octa-Fuzz.
The assembly is perfect, the compact format and the handling very intuitive. Inside, there are high quality PCBs. At Source Audio it's not joking, the brand wants to be at the forefront of audio technologies, the architecture used offering computing power and processing quality that very few brands benefit from.
The Source Audio Kingmaker Fuzz is: 3 types of Fuzz on board, 3 presets, stereo in & out which, as we will see below, is incredibly flexible. You can also increase the power of the pedal tenfold by using the Neuro Mobile application which is full of additional settings and possibilities.
Concretely, it is a war machine! It's not just an ordinary versatile fuzz pedal. Imagine, through the Neuro app, you can access a huge collection of additional drives, fuzzes, and distortions with extensive parametric EQ capabilities, stereo routing options, and advanced internal features.
For example, you can combine several fuzzes in series or parallel, split the signal on each output and send each drive motor to a specific output. Nothing prevents you from having a classic Fuzz on the right and an Octavi a on the left. Impressive!
And the sound in all this? The pedal sweeps a very wide Fuzz register. For example, an ultra fluid and thick high-gain Fuzz, a vintage Fuzz which cleans and interacts perfectly with the volume knob, a fuzz with octave for massive rhythms or solos. All modes have a very musical grain, the effect is dynamic, it reacts perfectly to the nuances of your playing and stacks perfectly on your favorite amp. It's a headless fuzz that doesn't need to be used with X or Y pedals or amps to sound its best. It is plug n 'play and sounds whatever the setting, even the most extreme. Combined with the app's parametric settings, you can really sculpt your sound and get a custom fuzz, all with breath that's always under control.
The Source Audio Kingmaster Fuzz is a true Swiss army knife for Fuzz fans. The concept is formidable, the flexibility enormous, the possibilities almost infinite via the application, and its sound signature particularly additive. All for one of the most attractive prices!
