The Buffalo FX Germanium Fuzz has made me love fuzz pedals again. Now, hold on to your hats: a well informed source within Buffalo FX is telling that a new killer pedal is in preparation.
The Pinfire is inspired by the legendary Dallas Rangemaster, a germanium treble booster used by Eric Clapton on the Beano album (although there is some controversy about it) and Ritchie Blackmore. Where the original Rangemaster had only one volume/boost control, the Pinfire has four settings:
- pre gain
- low boost
- high cut
- output volume
The new type enclosure has a battery draw. In Steve’s own word: it “will be very high spec, possibly higher than about 90% of whats available”.
Can’t wait to hear the beast!
